Tips For Lawyers

General Discussion  - 
 
Hey there #Lawyers - I might be early for some of you in various time zones, but my inner nerd compelled me to do a bit of jedi/lawyer comparison, given the time of year.  

What Jedi skills did I miss that lawyers need to have?

Just a bit of fun :-)
 
Time to bring out your inner nerd, and celebrate #StarWarsDay - what jedi lawyer skills do you have?http://www.tipsforlawyers.com/5-critical-jedi-lawyer-skills/
It's star wars day - so I'm celebrating - lawyer style (like I was going to miss this opportunity).

Below is the NJ Appellate Division opinion, State v. Christopher Mazzarisi, A-1860-13T4, April 28, 2015.  It is a published opinion.  It deals with the topic of the police secretly recording attorney client conversations that occur in police interview rooms.  Most NJ law enforcement agencies now have recording equipment in their interview rooms.  In at least two cases, officers have recorded conversations between attorneys and their clients.  In one case the officers overheard the defendant telling his lawyer the location that he buried his wife's body.  The police used that information to obtain a search warrant to recover the body.  In that particular case, the defense attorney suspected that the police had somehow overheard his conversation with his client.  An anonymous caller confirmed his suspicion.  
Moore recently, a police officer in Monmouth County "inadvertently" taped an attorney client conversation.  The defense attorney in this case was very careful in his discussion with his client.  Interestingly, the police officer who taped the communication was not disciplined in any manner.  It is an interesting read.  Has anyone else heard of this?

A Class Action Lawsuit on Fake “Craft Beer”

This is very interesting to me since I live in San Diego, the craft beer Mecca of the world, so it makes sense that the lawsuit is based in San Diego.

“Through its false and deceptive marketing, Defendant misleads consumers to believe that Blue Moon is an independently brewed, hand-crafted beer,” The suit states. “While MillerCoors does not constitute a craft brewer, and thus Blue Moon does not constitute a craft beer, Defendant falsely identifies it as such on the MillerCoors website.

This practice misleads consumers and allows Defendant to charge up to 50% more for Blue Moon beer than it charges for other MillerCoors products.”

Full story at: http://www.brewbound.com/news/2015/millercoors-slapped-with-class-action-suit
After years of debate over what constitutes a “craft brewer,” MillerCoors – which produces and markets the Blue Moon line of craft-style beers – has been hit with a class action lawsuit over the use of the word “craft” on both its website as well as various marketing and point-of-sale materials. The suit, filed last week in the California superior court of San Diego County, alleges that MillerCoors deceptively brews, markets and distributes Blue ...

How do you track your return on investment?

I work with hundreds of firms across the nation and more often than not, they have no idea what kind of return on investment they are receiving... Most marketing companies will have a tracking number but that only works to a certain point. Does anyone make an Excel Spreadsheet with contact name, date called, date converted, amount, marketing firm, etc.?

Just curious as to how some of you track one of the most important parts of growing a business properly.

This UK malpractice action was directed at a law firm who were accused of providing "canned" advice and representation but little personal contact with the client.  

Doesn't that sound like all the online lawyer/legal advice sites springing up as legal services become too expensive for real people?

+Cathy Moran It does to me.    I have to ask whether, at some point, the "form providers" (e.g., Legal Mooz) received enough complaints to know that consumers do not appreciate the warning that the forms they provide are so "basic" that they  cause mishaps.

Imho, drones should be treated in law like how people treat pet dogs in law. You come attacking me, or be where you'r not supposed to be, to the "drone pound" (a.k.a off button) you go and the owner is responsible.

Estimated $300,000,000.00 purse. Pacquiao was not allowed an anti-inflammatory injection immediately before the fight despite being allowed the injections during training. Why? Different form had to be submitted for fight night injection and Pacquiao's paperwork filed with the commission didn't check the injury box, and the Nevada commission ruled against the request for a shot.  

I must assume Pacquiao's legal team missed checking the injury box. What a screw up!
LAS VEGAS — The pressure of a $180 million payday never got to Floyd Mayweather Jr. , even if the richest fight ever wasn't the best.

In my opinion it is very difficult for a lawyer to come right out of law school and start their own practice.  There are so many nuances and things that they never teach you in law school.  A new lawyer needs the benefit of other lawyers experiences to be successful.
