New Firm, New Day

I have started my own law firm!  It has been an interesting and busy period of transition, as I have had to take all the steps necessary to open a law practice.  There are more steps involved than you might imagine. However, broken up into small steps, it is a very manageable undertaking for any attorney out there considering making the leap.  And with the goal of aiding other attorneys looking to hang a shingle, I plan to detail all the steps I have had to take to open a practice in a series of blogs I will start posting on a weekly basis.  Look for my first posting on this topic sometime next week.

About helpful links

My inaugural blog is a blog about my blog itself.  It’s a metablog!  I have created a tab on the left side of my blog page of helpful links.  All of the links will take you to websites containing useful and (I think) reliable information of a legal bent.  I have used them as a starting point for legal research or as a fast way to gather useful information.  After having reveled in the fingernails-on-a-chalkboard joy of wasting many long hours weeding through the unhelpful, unreliable, and obnoxious websites that are merely advertisements masquerading as legal information, I offer these helpful links to you.  I will comment on posted links as they are added to my helpful links tab, and plan to expand into both reviewing linked websites and providing a how-to for effectively using these sites to find relevant legal information.
