I can’t say enough good things about Google Scholar.  It’s free and not without its limitations but it sure is nice to have a Google-assisted legal research tool. 

This kind of ties in to my recent posts about chosing your attorney.  Is your law firm keeping down costs with free legal research tools like Google Scholar?  Better ask that question. Remember that many times the costs that a firm incurs are passed directly to the client.

Attorney At Your Service January 28, 2010

I’ve been absent these past few months and I apologize. I just finished a jury trial in Milwaukee County. During the trial preparation my client and I were talking about how long we’ve known each other. I was the attorney that answered the phone when he called in the very first time soon after the collision. He didn’t talk with a paralegal, “intake specialist” or secretary. I worked with him since, literally, day one.

This kind of service is important to think about when you search/interview for your attorney. Hiring an attorney is a very personal matter. Availability (email, cell phone etc) and personality are extremely important to make sure your attorney will be with you for the long haul. By this I mean potentially to trial. Even though the vast majority of my clients’ cases settle before filing a lawsuit and before trial I think it helps them to know that their attorney will be willing and has the experience to fight at trial.

Again, sorry for the long delay in posting. I’ll be writing more in 2010.
