[Just Oregon Lawyers Blog] Gifts Aplenty
Here in Oregon, new lawyers are beginning their professional life working with their new mentors according to the desired goals of Oregon’s New Lawyer Mentor Program. I have seen many of these new lawyers who are seeking help with launching their own law practice. Likely this is a situation being repeated in many states as more law school graduates take and pass their state but don’t find a position with a law firm or government agency or in-house counsel. My advice to these new...
[Law Practice Matters] Why Siri (and Majel) Are Not the End of SEO for Lawyers
  Siri, the iPhone's wonderful new digital assistant, has made some waves since bursting on the scene. There are entire websites devoted to chronicling Siri's responses to weird questions; there was a bit of a kerfuffle over its apparently pro-life search results; and a few commentators have asserted that Siri is going to kill search engine optimization (SEO). Respectfully, I disagree with that last bit. At least as it applies to lawyers. Why? Because, fundamentally, I think hiring a...

[Law Practice Matters] My New Favorite Free App: Caffeine for Mac OSX
We tend to spend most of our time focusing on the big stuff in life. I used to have a paralegal who was a tough as nails ex-Army guy fond of saying, "ya gotta fix what's killing ya first." Despite the obvious, if a bit alarming, wisdom of this advice, sometimes it's the little things in life that matter most: a courteous driver letting you merge into hellish traffic; a hand-written thank you note; Jon Stewart and the 2012 Republican primaries. That in mind, I am completely smitten with...

It also has an iCal...
