There are endless legal blogs on every imaginable topic, from “greedy associates”, to lawyers behaving badly, to reports on recent verdicts and decisions, to substantive content analyzing and discussing case law, legal principles, and legal trends. And while most legal blogs presenting substantive material are incredibly useful and informative, they can read like, well, substantive material that is useful and informative. These blogs are typically not as entertaining as reading about greedy associates or lawyers behaving badly, but the public and other lawyers frequently rely on the substantive content to learn more about an area of law without resorting to solely code sections and annotations. Wouldn’t it be outstanding if there was a substantive legal blog that is fun to read?
There is! Look no further than Alex Medina’s Legal Blog. Alex Medina, of Alex Medina Law, presents important information for regular folks and lawyers alike. His posts are informative, yet entertaining. His most recent posts – Damages Part I, II, and III – take the reader through a silly hypothetical situation where one person sues another for a wrong, and discusses compensatory and liquidated damages. Haven’t you always wanted to learn about what a case might be worth? These posts are worth the read. It might not be about lawyers behaving badly, but its the most fun article on damages we’ve ever read. Well done, Alex! We are looking forward to your future posts.
Alex—a recovering BigLaw attorney—owns Alex Medina Law, a sophisticated litigation boutique in Northern California.
