Legal tech, innovative marketing and good cash flow are key to successful personal injury practice

He added that he had to “learn a lot over the last while out of necessity, how to run a business and engage in effective marketing.”

One of the biggest challenges when you’re a new lawyer starting a law firm, he said, is that “you don’t have a lot of money to start, you don’t have access to a great number of resources to compete with the bigger law firms you are going up against, who have already established themselves.”

For Rudder, that meant finding innovative ways to market his skills without spending money on Google or Facebook ads. Instead, he uses a method called “earned traffic marketing” that “doesn’t require writing a check” but does require an investment of time. In his case, that meant writing a book on personal injury law, Catastrophic Impairment Law in Canada. He also uses social media, such as TikTok, to spread information about his firm and its services.

Also, because Rudder doesn’t have “an army of people” working for him, he depends on client intake software to redirect clients to his website. Once there, “as soon as they give me any information and want to book an appointment, I get notified, and from that point on, my job is to move them from being a lead to a retained client.”

To do that, Rudder said, you must earn the potential client’s trust. To do that involves answering their questions, often with videos that he has already created that deal with various aspects of personal injury law.

Morgan & Morgan tells its lawyers to offer insurance carriers no courtesies

Insurance companies may be celebrating a change in Florida law intended to limit aggressive litigation. But the state’s largest personal injury law firm will give carriers no quarter.

A Morgan & Morgan the company-wide memo suggests the firm’s only adjustment in legal strategy will be to push defendants harder.

“As we enter this new era, I want to make it unequivocally clear that we will not be giving an inch to carriers ever again,” wrote Matt Morganthe firm’s morgan/”managing partnerand Reuven Moskowitzthe firm’s Chief Operating Officer. “Not one inch.”

The memo says lawyers are not authorized to grant extensions to attorneys representing insurers.

“They can figure it out or file a motion,” the executives wrote. “Under no circumstances will we be agreeing to any continuity, discovery extensions, or request to extend (the) deadline to answer complaints.”

Describing “red line rules” for the new legal environment, Morgan and Moskowitz said it would be a “serious internal offense if we find any courtesies being extended to the insurance industry.”

That posture goes across the board, including for any litigation that predates the March and the Legislative Session.

The Legislature approved a massive tort package (HB 837) that became the first bill passed in Session to be signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The bill eliminates the requirement that policyholders cover attorneys’ fees for any party prevailing in a lawsuit against an insurance company.

While lawmakers stressed that Florida statute still allows avenues for plaintiffs to recover court costs, trial lawyers stressed that it’s less likely in cases where parties settle, the outcome of a vast majority of lawsuits against carriers.

It’s clear from the memo that lawyers take the change personally.

Morris Bart lawyers to screen misdemeanor gun charges for DA | courts

The “exponential increase” in guns on the streets has led the Orleans Parish district attorney’s office to bart/article_ee2f178e-bac9-11ed-8419-63a88d2ecf2b.html”drafts of Morris Bart’s civil law firm for free help in screening cases for prosecution.

“When you’re the murder capital of the world, you have to start thinking differently,” District Attorney Jason Williams said Tuesday in announcing the unusual partnership. “As opposed to pointing fingers, [Bart] saw a need.”

A team of at least six lawyers affiliated with Bart, a personal injury lawyer regionally famous for his prolific advertising, are reviewing police reports on misdemeanor weapons arrests and making non-binding recommendations on whether prosecutors should file formal charges, Williams said.

Hoping to curb violence

Williams said he hopes the screening assistance helps his prosecutors move faster through those cases and, eventually, curb shootings and other violent crimes.

In a city where the number of murders has been Increasing for more than three years, Bart said his firm won’t be paid for its public work. Instead, he said of the partnership, “I wanted to step up. I wanted to do something very meaningful.”

Dane Ciolino, a professor of legal ethics at Loyola University, called the arrangement “unusual but not unethical.” And he hailed the partnership: “Anything you can do to get the community and lawyers in the community more involved in public safety – it’s a good thing.”

Gun cases dismissed

The announcement came two weeks after one of Williams’ division heads, Emily Maw, unilaterally dismiss gun complaints against nine people in Magistrates Court on Mardi Gras. Williams has called her decisions williams-raps-deputy-emily-maw-over-gun-releases/article_eead9262-b3da-11ed-941b-cf51b5f38cb0.html””improper and unrepresentative of office policy.” But he denied Tuesday that her actions prompted him to sign up for Bart’s firm for help.

Injury lawyer suspended 30 months for gerry after pandemic fraud claims dropped

Michael Yi

Michael Yi became a lawyer in 2005 and worked as a city prosecutor in Aurora for seven years before starting his own law firm. (LinkedIn)

A personal injury lawyer in Aurora will lose his law license for two-and-a-half years after admitting that he forged his brother’s signature on more than a dozen documents.

Meanwhile, state investigators have dropped allegations that Michael Yi defrauded the unemployment system and Paycheck Protection Program during the pandemic.

Yi has been licensed to practice law in Colorado since 2005. After seven years as an Aurora city prosecutor, he started Michael Yi & Associates, an injury law firm with a focus on helping Asian clients, in 2012. The firm also has a Colorado Springs office.

“We are proud of the high legal and ethical standards that have been established by our firm and the tradition of excellence that we work to maintain,” the firm’s website states.

According to the Colorado Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel, which investigates wrongdoing by lawyers, Yi was employing five people at the firm when the pandemic arrived in March 2020. The office initially alleged that he told them to collect unemployment benefits — and to keep working.

“From March 2020 to August 2020, knowing these employees were receiving unemployment benefits, (Yi) did not pay these employees even though they were working for him full-time,” Attorney Regulation Counsel staff alleged in an August 2022 complaint.

Yi also received a PPP loan while he wasn’t paying employees, that complaint alleged.

The document accused Yi of a dozen ethics violations, including using the notary stamp of his brother and forging his brother’s signature “on at least 14 different clients’ settlement documents.” Yi committed three crimes as a result, the complaint said.

Yi, through his attorneys, responded to the accusations in October. He

A FIRM OUT OF TIME – Shortly after the dot-com bubble burst in the early 2000s, Shearman & Sterling was still a marquis name in the legal community. The firm, then ranked No. 5 in the Am Law 100, was high-priced, effective and had a market reputation as a firm that you called. But Shearman’s trajectory—a one-time Wall Street darling to now actively courting merger options to gain scale and thrive—contrasts with that of several of its New York peers, which advanced their profit and platform in the last two decades to gain considerable scale and stay in the Am Law 20, according to an analysis by So what happened? “The market changed, and [Shearman] did not,” Tim Corcoran, a long-time legal industry consultant, told’s Patrick Smith. “It seems to me they’ve been resting on their laurels.”

Top law firms King & Wood Mallesons and Herbert Smith Freehills look to improve relationships with employees

She agreed it was a “two-way street, and that employers also needed clarity: “Absolutely. A big focus for us has been the people value experience and making sure we are very clear about that…”

Ms Lattey said KWM had been “very supportive over the past little while in making sure we are doing everything for our people”.

“In some of the conversations I have had, they are interested in getting more clarity around what it means to be at KWM.

“There has been a period of trusting people and I think that that is still an incredibly important part of this. But I do think that they’re looking to us: ‘OK, tell me what you’re all about. Tell me what I can expect from you, and be really clear on that.’”

Lawyers could be “incredibly driven people”, Ms Lattey said.

“They want to know where the guard rails are; what does success look like at a place like KWM.”

Mr Pike said HSF had embarked on a global project with staff, with the results to be revealed in late March.
