January is gone and February is here already. Which means that another issue of the Texas Bar Journal is in route to tens of thousands of attorneys spread across the Lone Star State. In addition to the reader favorites of Disciplinary Actions and Memorials, this edition examines a few hot topics within the local and national legal communities (including a piece co-authored by the Tweeter Laureate of Texas).
