So why did I decide to start a blog with so many legal blogs (“blawgs) out there? Well, many of the other blogs are about very specific legal fields or are just spaces for lawyers to rant about things that tick them off. While some of my posts may be in that genre, I intend to use this blog to talk about issues and stories from a trial lawyer’s perspective. How would I defend a particular case or why is a particular case important? What strategy would I employ were I the lawyer for the person under the gun? I hope this angle will help to generate commentary and discussion. I strongly feel that the most important social issues were addressed and resolved by lawyers and the court system. Integration; women’s rights; free speech; product safety etc. etc, were all shaped by litigation. So I hope this site will be both a defender of law and lawyers as well as a place that points out the flaws and weaknesses of the system. I hope you enjoy it, but if you don’t, just remember this is just my opinion, you can always start your own blog. If that answer doesn’t suit you, sue me!
