About the Blog

I started this blog in 2004, when I was a solo practitioner in Highland, Illinois looking to reinvent my practice.  It was a place for me to share the things I found that I believed would make lawyers (and specifically me) better at serving clients and making money.

As one of the first blogs about alternative fees, legal marketing and client service, it quickly gained a somewhat underserved place on the “must read” lists of many early legal innovators.  It introduced me to amazing people and gave me the courage to try new things and explore new opportunities, both in and out of law practice.

In the nearly eight years and eighteen hundred posts since it began, this blog has become my proudest professional achievement.   Though I no longer practice law, I have the good fortune to remain involved in the legal industry and work with lawyers nearly every day, and I cling to this blog as my way to give back to all the amazing lawyers I’ve grown to know and respect.

Thank you for reading!  I’ll strive to deserve your attention, keep you engaged and give you an interesting idea or insight along the way.
