Hugh Spires Jr. – United Allergy Services

For some people, the allergies themselves aren’t so much the issue—it’s the treatment. It can be time consuming to go to a weekly allergy appointment. And for a few people, it’s the needles. But no need to pencil out a block of your afternoon—or cringe, sniffle or full-out cry. At least, that’s the goal of […]

Jeremy Osborne – Pegasus Optimization Managers LLC

Got to hang on to that startup mentality, though the company seems to be anything but a newcomer in the very specialized business of contract compression. So muses Jeremy Osborne about Pegasus Optimization Managers, LLC, which he and former President/CEO Randy Dean co-founded just over four years ago in College Station, Texas. Success mustn’t go […]

Kevin Colby – GOWell International

While earning his Masters in theater at New York’s Hunter College, where he won the school’s esteemed Playwright’s Award, Kevin Colby developed a knack for syntactic detail: finding the perfect noun or verb, discovering how even a seemingly innocuous word can forever alter a character’s fate and—most important of all—understanding how every element must be […]

Shelby Angel – Match Group

For Shelby Angel, the lure of the law is in how it allows one to see things from many angles. Indeed, her own career has been a testament to that sense of dynamism, having worked for years as a litigator in the Dallas area and, more recently, as an in-house attorney for Gold’s Gym. For […]

Aamna Jalal – Televerde

Testimonials

As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
