The Internet has changed everything. That is the truth we must all accept
Undoubtedly the Internet has changed your business. I can assure you that the Internet is radically changing how lawyers practice law and charge clients for their services.
Some lawyers feel threatened by this change. They fight to preserve the status quo: open ended hourly billing rates and fees disconnected from results. However, other lawyers welcome and embrace the changes that the Internet has brought to the legal profession. Some call us Third Wave lawyers. Others call us mavericks. The American Bar Association calls us legal rebels.
What does it mean for you or your business when you work with a Third Wave lawyer?
We work together as partners. I give you a fixed cost estimate whenever possible. And, I stand behind that estimate.
It means that we collaborate to solve problems.
It means that I will work very hard as your advocate. But with dignity and respect for an opposing point of view.
What are my specialties? Transactional business law, and associated legal specialties such as copyright law, trademark law, licensing, and litigation. As a Third Wave lawyer I can also assist you with software, e-commerce and Internet law.
