Mike Moebes, owner of the Atlanta workers compensation law firm of Moebes Law, and I just returned from the great city of New Orleans where we attended the annual Southern Trial Lawyers meeting. After two days of lectures given by some of the most respected trial lawyers in the United States, including Howard Nations of Texas and John Romano of Florida, we took some time to enjoy the sites and sounds of Mardi Gras. The STLA group rode on Float #5 in the Krewe of Tucks, right behind the Toulouse Brass Band. The float included the partners in the firm of Bogani and Robes of West Palm Beach, Florida and Saints defensive end, Jeff Charleston, and our float happened to be captured on television by Channel 4.
Later in the evening the group retired to the French Quarter for a Renaissance themed party complete with elaborate throws. Among the 50 lawyers in attendance were our friends Anne Marie Pantazis from Charlotte, NC and Al Patrick from Greenville, SC. It is great to see this gem of an American city getting back on its feet!
