2013: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

It's been a whirlwind 2013 for me and for Axess Legal Corp. The first quarter picked up pace in March 2013. In fact, there were days and nights that the entire team worked without a pause. Difficult to forget the night when clients unexpectedly turned up with an emergency situation and I missed attending my son's seventh birthday celebrations and returned home at about 1 AM. 
This is my seven year old - Jyotiraditya. (Secret: He wants to change his name to Sanand Junior as soon as possible!]

Coming back to 2013, the year has been mostly good, particularly after August. Of course, there is always a tossing in of a few surprises here and there. But it's been a positive journey so far for Rajeev & me as we worked towards expanding our areas of legal expertise and experience. Somewhat, pushing the envelope and testing new waters, you could say.
Though the courts are closed since last week, the office is busy and running with several client meetings and trips scheduled in advance. We have good support staff with a strong client focus - a HUGE advantage for any budding law firm. And the good news is that the pace of work is increasing as we head to the New Year - a good sign for lawyers like me who aren't bullishly into marketing a law firm over the Internet. 
What has 2013 been like for you? What are your New Year resolutions for 2014? Do drop by and share your thoughts. Who knows - you may inspire me to contemplate and commit to some serious New Year resolutions.

Parenting Quotes: Having a child should be fun

You are looking at a moment when my son and I passed by the village areas behind the Fort Kochi backwaters. The place is surrounded by small homes parked right in front of the sea. Boats, fishing nets and other fishing equipments are clustered around the area. We stopped the car - my son and I - because the crashing waves caught our interest as did the fishing nets. I let my son play among the wild waves for a few minutes. Tossing, turning and catapulting. Kids know how to loosen up and have fun. They teach us to have fun too.
