Welcome to another post from our “Meet the FindLaw Team ” series. “Meet the FindLaw Team” provides insight into the day-to-day lives of our colleagues. Today we feature FindLaw Account Copywriter Alicia Copeland. Get to know Alicia by reading about her experiences at FindLaw below.
What is your current title?
I am a Copywriter II in Solutions Support.
When did you join the FindLaw team and how did you get here?
I started as a contract writer in July 2010, and I was hired as a full-time employee in January 2011. Prior to working as a copywriter at FindLaw, I went to law school in New York, passed the dreaded New York bar exam, and worked for a media law think tank researching and writing about broadband, wireless and cell phone issues.
What interests you most about lawyer marketing?
I love learning about the law and writing about the law. These two passions meld perfectly in a job where I get to write content about legal practice areas all day.
What activities does your work day typically involve?
Most of my time is spent writing, reading and researching legal topics. At any given time I could be writing about car accidents in Massachusetts, Social Security Disability appeals in New York or maritime issues in Alaska. The wide range of topics is what keeps it all interesting, and I love the niche legal topics I come across. In addition to research and writing, the rest of my time is broken up with emails, meetings, and calls with clients where I get to have fun discussing those niche topics.
What are your interests outside of FindLaw?
I love books, Legos, horror movies and all things Halloween. To this end, I am always working on amassing my “cabinet of curiosities,” which is what I call my library. The shelves are lined with my growing collection of first-edition signed novels, bugs encased in plastic, ceramic skulls and lots of Legos.
