So Long, From David and Garry

♫ I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future’s lyin’, St. Elmo’s Fire…

Lyrics and Music by by David Foster and John Parr, recorded by John Parr.


The time has come for us, David Bilinsky and Garry Wise,  to pass the baton to a new generation of leaders and writers to carry on the work of SlawTips.

This, therefore, will be our final, and farewell post.

Garry came on board back in Feb 2013 following Laura Calloway’s transition to new ventures in January 2013.

Laura and David started the PracticeTips side of SlawTips back on Jan 13, 2011.

All three of us have had a great deal of fun (and many a Wednesday evening) devoted to getting the next installment out to SlawTips.  It has been a gratifying journey for us all, and we move on, content that we are leaving PracticeTips in the extremely good hands of the many exceptional contributors who have joined us as Tipsters over the last year.

Good luck and best wishes to them all:  Michael McCubbin, Andrea Cannavina, Sandra Bekhor, Elizabeth Mah, Ian Hu, Stacey Gerrard and Mark Morris.

No doubt, the best has yet to come.

Our thanks, as well, to Barney Christianson, who will also be moving on, after a year of stellar contributions.

Now to be clear, you aren’t entirely rid of us yet.

David will continue to post at his blog, Thoughtful Legal Management and on the main Slaw site.  Garry can still be found at Wise Law Blog and @wiselaw on Twitter – and according to the rumour mill, might make the occasional appearance at Slaw, as well.

Special thanks to Steve Matthews, of course, for running this joint and trusting us with the keys.

Finally, thank you to our readers for visiting and reading and re-tweeting and commenting on our many posts over the years. We hope we have added some value to your professional lives and provided the occasional practical tip that has helped you prosper in your legal and paralegal practices.

Our best wishes to you all.

So in the patented Bilinsky spirit, we will take our final bows, and now, leave you with a song…

Until we meet again.

-David Bilinsky and Garry Wise
