How can we help you? Let us count the ways. From gadget reviews to ethics news, our blogs lead the way.

Okay, enough of the sing-song. You’re busy, so we’ll get right to it. You should be reading our lawyer-penned Technologist and Strategist blogs. They’re extremely useful, we promise!

How so? Here are five ways, per blog:

The Technologist

5. Gadget News

Maybe you need a cheap smartphone for a loved one. Or perhaps you are curious about that new fingerprint sensor on the iPhone. Our gadget-loving geek-lawyers talk about the latest toys and whether they are worth your time.

4. Tech Law Trends

Not just legal tech, but tech law too. The biggest lawsuits, from NSA litigation to Silicon Valley disputes, are covered, as are dated statutes that need fixing.

Our first big question for 2014: will privacy litigation against private companies become the next big practice area?

3. How To

From buyers guides, to extending the useful life of your gadgets, we provide practical tips to help you help yourself.

2. Privacy Considerations

Lawyers have a duty of confidentiality, which means they have to pay particularly close attention to privacy issues. Our lawyer-bloggers talk about why Google caching email images is a bad idea and ask whether their privacy policy should concern you.

1. Security Warnings

Which company was the latest to be hacked? Is your smartphone secure? Staying safe from hackers can be overwhelming. We keep you up-to-date.

The Strategist

5. Marketing, Yay and Nay

Do: get involved in your community.

Don’t: advertise via a racist or otherwise terrible lawyer commercials.

4. Ethics Blunders

Learn from the follies of others, like the guy who filed a lawsuit on a client’s behalf without ever meeting or getting the consent of the client.

3. Ethics Opinions

Did a state bar just issue an ethics opinion worth perusing? We take their often complex and wordy rants and simplify them, such as Ohio’s controversial approval of text message solicitation.

2. People Management

Yes, you’ve run your own firm for a while. But if you are hiring, firing, or training staff, you may need a pointer here and there, such as how to assess your associates.

1. Business

With an industry that has faced massive upheaval over the past few years, we’ve put a lot of focus on questions new shingle-hangers might have, such as “do I really need an office?” And for veteran solos, we keep you up to date on changing laws, such as the new simplified home office tax deduction.

Now that you, the busy lawyer, know how useful we really are, what are you waiting for? Head on over, and bookmark us!
