Lawyers have a reputation for being workaholics. Much of it is deserved. Even though it’s harder now than ever before to make a living, let’s not kid ourselves: attorneys have been working overtime for a long, long . . . long time. The ability to work oneself into the ground, in this profession, is (more […]
Sometimes, when you buy software, you don’t just buy software; what may come attached are certain accoutrements, one of which may be a support package, which may be fairly costly in its own right, and oftentimes a continuing expense. The continued development of cloud products has meant an increase in intuitive applications, which require less […]
Back in the day, you could hide from the internet. There was a time (like when horseless carriages were in general use) when potential clients would not look for or vet lawyers online — at least not aggressively. This was a function of a lack of information (just think of how much more stuff is […]

It happens every year: the new Baby New Year gets lost in the Archipelago of Last Years, and we have to call in Rudolph to save his a . . . No, wait. That’s not right. That’s another story, for another time.
Let’s go again: Every year, you make personal and professional New Year’s resolutions; and, […]
Every year, we receive and publish high-quality guest blog posts on a variety of subjects. As the New Year turns over, our annual tradition has been to collect those guest blog posts into one omnibus post, thereby republishing them. Not wanting 2015 to feel left out, we’ve just done that for it, below.
