Rainmaking Recommendation from Jaimie Field: Get Social or Else!

In the latest edition of “are we still really talking about this?” Jaimie Field brings you a recommendation on why, as lawyers, you should be paying attention to and using social media.

Super Bowl Commercials: The Bad of 2017

Now that we’ve seen our lackluster list of “good” Super Bowl commercials for 2017, let’s dive into the ones that I thought weren’t so hot. The majority of spots made it into my “mediocre” category, so it’s harder to choose “bad” and “ugly” ads this year than you might think – but I’ve buckled down and come up with a few for you!

Four Key Questions Your Competitors Can Answer for Your Firm

iStock_000016006182SmallEarly on in my legal career, I learned something about law firms that has stuck with me.

Bearing that in mind, the importance of keeping an eye on what your competitors are up to cannot be undervalued. Whenever I speak to a lawyer or legal marketing professional, I get the sense that we’re all doing this on an informal, if not formal, basis fairly regularly.
