Happy Holidays

With Hanukkah underway and Christmas coming up this week, I think it is time to start celebrating and spending time with family and friends.  Which means for me, and for you the reader, there won’t be much posting between now and next Monday, December 29th.  

News articles will be updated daily (although to be honest, the number of mentions of Heller in the news has dwindled greatly) and if something important happens (like we all get our accrued vacation checks in the mail or pigs begin to fly), it will be posted as soon as possible.

I’ll be here in Chicago trying to stay warm (it is -3 F right now with a -30 F wind chill) and spending time with my niece, nephew and in-laws as we hold our yearly celebrations.  Others of us will be traveling and if that’s the case, please stay safe and remember that patience rules – it is much better to get to your destination with grace and in one piece.

I’m going to avoid any witty surmising as to what kind of gifts certain people deserve this year – now is not the time nor the place.  This is a time of wonder and celebration of what has passed for all of us in 2008.  I wish everyone who was at Heller Erhman this year – from the Dissolution Committee members to the support staff – all the best and happy holidays.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
