Three years ago, I accepted a position to move in-house and work for a company. The move was a fulfillment of a set of personal goals. Unfortunately, the decision to become an in-house lawyer also slowly eliminated my desire to be The Droid Lawyer.
Oddly, the biggest hangup for me was that I felt someone disingenuous drafting posts about “working lawyers,” all while I was not actually a “working lawyer.” I felt (and probably still feel) that I wasn’t being truthful talking about Google or Android, while living a separate in-house life.
But I’ve slowly accepted the truth that I’m very much still connected to the reality of Android (and Google) lawyers, if not somewhat remotely. I still manage a “law office,” albeit non-traditional, and still utilize many of the same tools to manage cases, receive emails, and communicate my needs with “clients” and opposing parties. I also still deal with third parties (plaintiffs and defendants), and other parties in litigation and negotiations.
These realizations have enabled me to slowly get back a desire to share my knowledge, and also to encourage you to share your knowledge.
So over the course of the coming days, weeks, and months, I’ll be generating more lawyer-specific content, which I hope will help you grow your business and use the technology more effectively. If you have content you’d like to submit, please let me know.
