My yearly report is finally live: http://goblackfin.com/the-future-of-the-legal-industry/

From what I can see, major changes are coming to the legal industry. I'm looking forward to feedback from other industry experts on the items discussed. +Andre van Wyk +Larry Bodine +Dan Goldstein +Michael Ehline +Matthew Green +Casey Meraz +Peter Boyd +Alex DiSebastian +Ken Hardison +Dale Tincher +Dan Gilroy Design, LLC 
A new world is upon us. Adapt or die. How will your law firm respond to the changes in the industry? Will you position yourself for success, or failure?

Great, great article +Gerrid Smith. Your statement of "in today’s savvy Internet world, a prospect probably won’t hire you just because they found you" is spot on. Differentiation is key (not only in the legal market) and tailoring a website to a prospect user is critical. Getting ranked is one objective; conversions should be the ultimate goal.

I've had a lot of Thai food in my days and this is one of my favorites of all time! By far the best in the Avon area, but possibly the best ever. It's authentic and delicious. The owner's are wonderful and they accommodate our gluten-free needs. Highly recommended!

I'm really impressed. They took me in just before five, worked past five on my tire. Then because it was just a nail in my tire causing the slow leak, they didn't charge me anything. What can I say? A+
