My Lawyernomics 2014 Speaker Spotlight What's a common misconception lawyers have about SEO? Should I just buy a bunch of domains and link them together?

I'm attaching a link to a post by Ontario lawyer Corina Weigl, who blogs at www.allaboutestates.ca.

By Jessica Towne I’ve been writing about how to survive probation in my Georgia Driver newsletter lately. Probation requirements are usually written in dense legalese and use jargon that many probationers don’t understand. One requirement of probation that is easy to understand is paying fees on time. I suggest to those who have no money, to report to probation anyway and tell the officer why they aren’t making a payment. A judge is never authorized to revoke probation because a… [read post]

The rise of Internet commerce has brought with it inconsistent laws and court decisions across states as to whether retailers that have no physical presence in a state, but solicit sales online, must collect sales tax from customers.  The federal government has provided no guidance, ensuring the state-by-state differences would remain.  On Cyber Monday, December 2, 2013, the Supreme Court denied petitions for certiorari in Overstock.com, Inc. v. N.Y. Dep’t of Taxation and Fin., 20… [read post]

Bicycle accidents and auto accidents, technically, are treated identically under California law. The rules of determining who is at fault are the same. As a practical matter, they really are treated differently. And the reason they’re treated differently has to do with what city or county the case is handled in. There are certain places where there is hostility towards bicycle riders, and we have to overcome that as lawyers. There are other places where bicycle riding is viewed in a very… [read post]

Do you have Shiny Shiny Syndrome?  I do.  Here’s a post from January 2012 about a technique I still use: Many of the attorneys I work with suffer from the same thing I do: Shiny Shiny Syndrome.  You suffer from S3 when you regularly give in to an overwhelming urge to start working on something new and better, instead of wrapping up your current projects. Shiny Shiny Syndrome isn’t (usually) fatal, but the cumulative results of constantly starting projects at the… [read post]

By Kathleen Kapusta, J.D. Although an HR manager, vice president, and shareholder-director of a family-owned closely held corporation contended that her control of the company was illusory because she was often out-voted by her four brothers, they all enjoyed the same voting power and shared in the company’s profits, a federal magistrate judge in Indiana observed in finding that she was an employer rather than an employee. Further finding that judicial estoppel did not bar her brothers from… [read post]

This week marks 1 year since the marathon bombings in Boston. Within 48 hours of those horrible events, people filed trademark applications. As I said at the time: A mere 48 hours following the tragic events at last Monday’s Boston Marathon, two different applicants filed to protect the phrase BOSTON STRONG with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. These efforts to control use of the phrase in connection with clothing (a) would be virtually impossible to enforce even if granted… [read post]
