Alex Little Discusses Murder Trial of Michael Dunn with Fox News

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little talked with Fox News anchor Jamie Colby this weekend about the continuation of jury deliberations in the Michael Dunn murder trial. Dunn was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder Saturday, but the jury was partially hung on the murder decision against him in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Citing self-defense, Dunn testified that the teenager threatened him and that he thought he saw a gun in the SUV Davis and his friends were driving.

“Self-defense cases are incredibly difficult because the instructions are complex, and I think jurors tend to think of themselves more in the place of the defendant in a self-defense case than in any other time...because you wonder what you would do in a similar situation. You’ve got 12 people in there, and you’ve got to convince all 12 beyond a reasonable doubt that he didn’t act in self-defense, and that can be very difficult to do,” he said.

B*law*ging

By Will Cheek

The original version of this article appeared in the February 2014 issue of the Nashville Bar Journal.

Why Should I Blog?

Lawyering involves a delicate balance of too much to do and too little time to do it in. Work on your desk competes for limited personal time.  Precious hours for downtime are quickly consumed. Sleep and relaxation suffer.

New wavers Devo covered a classic song that captures things well:

Workin in a coal mine

Goin down, down

Workin in a coal mine

Whew! About to slip down

Lord I am so tired

How long can this go on?

Why blog? Here are four basic reasons:

    • • New frontier
    • • Education for client and referral base
    • • Source of business
    • • Appearances and expert

New Frontier

Although blogging has been around for more than a decade, attorneys in general have done a poor job exploiting blogging as a new communication tool. Many attorney blogs regurgitate the newsletter format, featuring detailed legal articles that are posted months apart.  These posts often read like condensed law review articles.

In the internet age, the newsletter format does not work. Internet consumers are looking for quick, easy, entertaining and useful information.  Posting lengthy lawyerly articles is not blogging.

There is plenty of room in cyberspace for real attorney blogs.

Education for Client and Referral Base

Folks frequently turn to the internet for information. People are in search of answers to all kinds of queries from the internet, including legal questions. Sadly, much of the information on the internet concerning legal advice is wrong. In addition, legal information on the internet is usually not tailored to a particular legal field or location, such as Tennessee or Nashville.

The fact that blogging is a new frontier for lawyers creates an opportunity for innovative attorneys to fill the void. If you follow some simple recommendations for blogging, your blog can easily become a destination for clients and referral sources – who want to regularly read informative posts about useful information.

This is your primary objective. Your blog should become a go-to source for education concerning your blog topic.  Do not expect your readers to pick up every post; instead, you want readers to visit regularly enough for your blog to become a destination.

Source of Business

As a young associate, I did not understand the importance of being a rainmaker. I get it now. If you have a book of business, you get more respect from your law firm.

Although it takes time and patience, a good blog is an excellent source of business. My Last Call blog easily generates $50,000 to $100,000 in new business each year.

Perhaps more importantly, I often hear from repeat clients that have read a blog post. Blogging is a great way to remind existing clients that you are an expert and that you are around to help.  My blog leads to new business from existing clients; for example, when I break news about a new legal issues that impact clients.

Becoming a trusted adviser to a client is one of the best ways to cement a long-term relationship with a client. Providing helpful information for free in a blog can pave the way for new relationships and strengthen bonds with existing clients.

Appearances and Expert

People tend to seek out professionals that have a reputation for being the best. Traditional methods of becoming known as the best lawyer are largely passé in the internet era. I am not a fan of this, but in my experience, your appearance in internet searches is critical to becoming a rain maker.  An AV Martindale Hubbell rating is not as important as being on the first page of a Google search.

Blogging is an easy way to increase your visibility on the internet. If your name pops up in multiple searches on a legal topic, you can appear to be an expert on the topic.

Internet search engines like Google are basically a popularity contest. A good blog can help you place your name near the top of the list in Google searches.

There is only one word for being at the top of a Google search: Priceless.

The Tennessean Features Nashville’s New Two Ten Jack Restaurant

FOX News Talks to Alex Little about Facebook Privacy Lawsuit

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News’ Shepard Smith Reporting Friday, talking about a California federal lawsuit against Facebook for reading users’ private messages. The class-action lawsuit claims Facebook scanned links sent in messages and shared that information with advertisers, violating state and federal privacy laws. Little, former Assistant U.S. Attorney and a member of Bonelaw’s Criminal Defense and Government Investigations practice, “The lawsuit is very explicit that Facebook relied repeatedly on the affirmation that what you want share privately, you can share privately, and at the same time, they went in there and accessed those messages to find out stuff about you. That disconnect is one of the reasons why they are being sued under California state law for unfair trade practice.”
