I always learn something

Very well put together and produced. I’ve been in the criminal defence business for years. I listen to Paul and his learned guests when I’m walking my husky in Yellowknife. I learn something from every episode!

Outstanding Series - Don’t Forget Us Solicitors Too!

This is a superb series. Although I do not practice criminal law, I have definitely picked up some great tips that I have already added to my practice —in particular surrounding retainers.

I hope that you won’t forget us little people in the trenches doing solicitor work. Would love to hear a real estate, as well as a trusts and estates episode.

Keep up the outstanding work!
