[Avoid a Claim] A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words (In a Real Estate Transaction)
This article is by By D. Bruce Heakes, Underwriting Counsel, TitlePLUS For the most part, gone are the days when real estate lawyers and clerks knew all of their clients personally and were familiar with all of the properties with which they were dealing. In order to run a viable real estate practice, today’s real estate practitioners often have to provide expert opinions on properties using only the data with which they are provided. This data may include an Agreement of Purchase and Sale,...
[SC Small Firm] Should Attorneys Use Free Email?
Are you using a free email account to communicate with clients? At least 1,652 South Carolina lawyers have registered a free Gmail account as their primary email address.

[Compujurist] In Memory of Ross Kodner, A Legal Technology Pioneer
My friend Ross Kodner passed away at the much too young age of 52 on July 29, 2013. I had planned on posting a memorial to him much earlier but the Milwaukee Bar Association asked if I would pen a memorial for Ross to appear in their October 1, 2013 newsletter. I didn't think it was appropriate to post my memorial here before the MBA published so I held off until today.
