Listen up. Announcement time.
I have tendered my resignation, I will no longer be a public defender.
I really wasn't looking for a new job. Someone asked me to take a job that I think will be interesting, and it kind of seemed like the right time for a change.
I will still be practicing criminal defense. Plus I'll get to try a few other areas of law, and get my feet wet in a few different courts. I think that's all that I'm ready to say about the new job.
I haven't figured out whether I will keep blogging. I think that I can, logistically, but I'm not sure that I'll have as much time as I once did. I have a few more weeks, and I hope that I can figure it out in that time.
I guess I will be opening up the 2007 Public Defender Awards to a whole new round of contenders for Best Blog by a Female Public Defender and Best Personality - so consider that my gift to you, ladies. And other people with good personalities.
I am also accepting ideas for a new quote at the top of the page. I would try to think of one myself, but I'm rewatching Season 2 of Weeds before tomorrow's season premiere.
And don't you worry, I will always be a P.D. at heart.
