As you may know I started this weblog, MayItPleaseTheCourt.com in August 2004.  You'll find posts here focusing on legal news and observations, which have brought our firm a significant amount  of legal business.  Thanks to the blog, his practice has grown in complex business litigation involving  environmental, real estate, land-use and computer matters and their respective insurance coverage and related tort issues.  MIPTC has also generated interviews from news reporters at the New York Times, Business Week and other national publications.

Larry Bodine, a lawyer and business development advisor in the Chicago area, launched his LawMarketing Blog in April 2004 at http://blog.larrybodine.com/. It quickly became a leading online destination for information on how law firms can get new clients and generate new business.  The site attracts hundreds of visitors per day, many of whom call Larry to retain him for new projects.  Because many visitors are from the news media, he has appeared on national television and been quoted in numerous legal news publications.
