My faithful readers have likely noticed my conspicuous absence over the last month or more. The simple truth is that I have been swamped with work, and for that I am thankful. Not everyone in my industry is doing so well. Fraud investigation and contract litigation are “extras” that not every company can afford these days. I’ve had the good fortune of developing good relationships with attorneys who refer cases to me, and so I’ve had a steady stream of new work.
