Chairman’s Letter

Letter from Our Chairman


I hope this letter finds you well. With Winter Storm Uri unleashing on Texas in February, it was quite a month and we are setting our sights on the future. We are happy to see signs that the U.S. economy is picking up steam as consumer spending is on the rise. We are hopeful this should add a positive economic surge both in Houston and across the country over the next quarter.

It’s hard to believe that we are a year into the pandemic. Thankfully, the Houston area is seeing declining COVID-19 reproduction rates, per the Texas Medical Center dashboard, and hospitalizations in the U.S. are down 70% since January. In Texas, vaccines are being administered at a rate of over 200,000 per day. This is great news which should also contribute to economic recovery in Texas.

Once again, we’re excited to add some new faces to the BoyarMiller team. John Ransom, a distinguished business and corporate attorney, joins our senior legal team as Shareholder in our Business Group. Drew Carpenter also joins us as Marketing Coordinator. Welcome to BoyarMiller John and Drew!

Texas Super Lawyers has also named four of our attorneys as 2021 Rising Stars. Congratulations to Whitney Brieck, Lauren Black, Christopher Burt, and Blake Royal!

We are looking forward to the future and a sense of normalcy. BoyarMiller’s offices have reopened to clients, and we are fortunate that we have already begun to have many productive business meetings while adhering to our Office Guidelines. We look forward to welcoming you back too.
