The Virginia State Bar has approved “cloud storage,” i.e. third-party data centers, to store client documents, according to a recent ethics opinion.
That’s welcome news for lawyers in document-intensive cases. Think about your last big case as you prepared for trial (2,000 pages or more). The records were probably sorted by category – witnesses, exhibits, and research – and perhaps sent to experts to review. Each time the record was copied, it likely added up to one thing: a lot of paper.
Here’s a quick summary of LEO 1872 and what cloud storage means for law firms.
A law blog is a great way to standout in a crowded legal marketplace.
Do you practice, for example, Virginia non-compete law? Unless you appear in the first few entries of a web search for “virginia non-compete lawyer,” few clients will find you online. You know, a tree falling in a forest and no one (including Google) around to hear it. Starting a blog for your practice also helps you accumulate knowledge over time: when you write about something, you learn about it, like self-assigned homework. The goal is to share information and build expertise along the way.
Here is a quick guide to building a law blog for your firm.
