Sharing Details is Important if You Want to Change the Way Law is Practiced

As many of you know, I started out this blog talking a lot about my day-to-day experiences. It’s kind of like reality blog. I gave you the blow-by-blow. My emotions were worn on my cuff.

Recently, I have been blogging more about generic issues. I’ve talked a lot about digital dictation.

I blogged a lot about law firm marketing.

Other topics have included:

1. "Greatest Philosophy" If you ever wanted to know what my philosophical approach was to the practice of law, you would find it in this category.

2. "Problems with the Michigan Supreme Court" can be found here.

3. And of course, "extranets".

My brother is an attorney with 20 years experience. He is a partner with the firm he started out with right out of law school. He makes a good living and has been at his firm long enough to have escaped many of the pressures that drive attorneys early in their careers (being seen at your desk at the right times, working Saturdays, giving up vacations because of a "more important" legal research project or trial). He’s got a 3,000 sq ft house on the Black River and 39’ sail boat. He and his wife have been married something on the order of 15 years. They have 3 boys, 13, 11, and 9.

Two weeks ago my brother, Mark, gave notice to his firm that he was quitting his partnership and moving his family 300 miles north to start his practice all over again at our firm.

I’ll be blogging about Mark and my firm’s transition in the coming weeks. Yes, there will be issues that are personal to me (having a family member directly involved in my life for perhaps the very first time), practical issues related to integrating him into our process and philosophical issues (why Mark jumped and why you should too).

So stay tuned. It’s going to be an exciting time. Don’t forget that the Greatest American Blogger will be exposed on February 10, 2007.
