Why A Blog? Why Now? by Robin Shellow

If anyone is following this, you will notice a burst of posts in the first week corresponding with my law office’s recent decision to create a blog located on our website at www.theshellowgroup.com. My staff and I will continue to add content when the opportunity permits and topics of interest or urgency arise.

For 29 years, I have been a criminal lawyer based in Milwaukee representing persons who have run afoul of the law. For 40 years, I have been a writer. We all waste a lot of time “in between”–charging our Fitbits, finishing one project and starting another, cleaning the garage, and all manner of myriad tasks which flesh out our days. Invariably, it is during the time “in between” where my words flow easily and with a degree of clarity that comes when I am not hyper-focused. I also know that Michael Danahey, my aide-de-camp for over a decade, will revise and edit every post that we write. Oftentimes, posts will be tested against the tireless mind of my father, James Shellow—the best lawyer I know and an estimable writer in his own right–and located on his own web page at www.shellowandshellow.com before being mirrored on The Shellow Group blog you are presently reading. Additionally, other stake-holders and fellow travelers who have suggestions may make occasional contributions as well.
Read, comment, share, and stay tuned.

Heroin Hysteria

From “Reefer Madness” to “Crack Is Wack”. From the crazy hippie who thought he could fly after taking one hit of LSD, to the white trash speed freak who blew up the trailer park cooking meth in his kitchen. “Just Say No” and “This is...

The Heroin Holocaust: Treatment Alternatives to Incarceration—Drug Courts Almost is not a word used by the medical examiner.

Almost is a word not used by Coroners

Will the Top 1% Accountability Act of 2016 will generate enough money for real treatment for all citizens? Or so I pondered last week when I started this post. But by this week, I was blind-sided by my own cynicism. Pithy political sarcasm costs lives For those unfortunate...

Treatment Works: Part 2

Top 1% Accountability Act of 2016 will generate enough money for real treatment for all citizens.
