A Specialized Personal Injury & Mass Tort Trial Firm. Getting Extraordinary Results for Ordinary People

Creating the Right Team to Take on Select Cases that Excite Attorneys, Right Wrongs and Remake the Lives of Clients “I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit.

Avoiding Trade Secrets Litigation: Hiring New Employees

Avoiding Trade Secrets Litigation: Hiring New Employees

Many companies hire employees that have gained experience at competitors. In fact, it is fairly standard; and there isn’t anything wrong with that practice. After all, employees are generally able to take their knowledge, skills, and experience with them when they leave one company for another, and companies often want to hire people with that […]

Making a Move with a Purpose

Making a Move with a Purpose

Three to five years into an associate’s legal career is the prime time for associates to consider making lateral moves within the various legal markets. Most firms are looking at candidates at this experience level with very specific credentials and experience to fill precise needs. An amazing thing happens, however, once a candidate submits his […]

How to Find and Keep Talent in a Highly Competitive Market

How to Find and Keep Talent in a Highly Competitive Market

One of the biggest problems companies face, in particular middle market companies, is a lack of available talent or a lack of the right talent to fill vacant roles. In fact, the National Center for the Middle Market has reported that 44% of middle market firms indicate that a top recruiting challenge is finding candidates […]

Snap! And You Miss It

Snap! And You Miss It

Snapchat and other photo-sharing apps have redefined how users and employees share information. Due to the ephemeral nature of Snapchat photos and videos, employers may face hurdles in identifying and investigating workplace misconduct. This article examines how employers can navigate employee issues in an era of “disappearing” social media. It is almost hard to imagine […]

Lessons Learned from Navy SEALs

Lessons Learned from Navy SEALs

I will admit it up front—I am in awe of Navy SEALs. My brother-in-law was a career Naval officer and, once upon a time, my sister ran the officer’s club at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado, CA, home of the SEAL Command. Through them, I have met a number of SEALs, each as impressive […]

Optimizing Your Law Firm’s Financial Health in 2019: Four Areas to Focus Your Spring Cleaning

Optimizing Your Law Firm’s Financial Health in 2019: Four Areas to Focus Your Spring Cleaning

Fingerprints are unique. No two snowflakes are alike. And each law firm has its own personality. Whether small or large, local, national, or international in scope, general service or specialized boutique, driven by profit or public service, each law firm has its own DNA. Though distinctive, many law firms share common characteristics. One shared by […]

Why Some Professionals are Pulling the Plug on Social Media

Why Some Professionals are Pulling the Plug on Social Media

“ This is my last and final post” is one angst-filled way to quit social media in a blaze of glory. I’ve always found it entertaining that when people finally realize that social media is taking up too much of their attention and becoming a distraction, they find it necessary to draw as much attention […]

To Speak Like the Best, You Need to Prep Like the Best

To Speak Like the Best, You Need to Prep Like the Best

I recently went to the Legal Marketing Association’s (LMA) educational program, “Training the Trainers for Public Speaking Success” to gain knowledge on the tools, tips and techniques for preparing lawyers to give a presentation—whether it be at a bar association meeting, conference, webinar or another event. Moderated by our own Traci Stuart, the panel included […]

Nobody Wants a Debbie Downer During Initial Consultations

Nobody Wants a Debbie Downer During Initial Consultations

Initial consultations are an important part of most law firms. Potential clients meet attorneys about their cases. They want an attorney who can help them achieve their goals. Most clients come in knowing generally what they want. Some attorneys, however, become naysayers who focus exclusively on worst case scenarios. They instantly become pessimistic about what […]
