FindLaw Insider - The FindLaw.com News Blog


FindLaw is already your best online source for legal information, and it's looking even better this week. With an eye towards our mobile legal consumers, FindLaw rolled out a sharp new redesign for its Learn About the Law and Legal Directory sites. The updated look features a clean white background, easy to navigate iconography for links, and the bold orange of parent company Thomson Reuters.

The new site obviously looks great, but here's a deeper look into our redesign and how it will benefit our customers.

George Khoury, Esq. recently began his new role as senior writer for FindLaw's legal professional blogs. George is an experienced civil rights attorney based in San Francisco. He joined FindLaw in 2016 as a writer for the consumer blogs team, covering topics such as child custody, property line disputes, age discrimination, and drone regulations. His new role will focus on discussing issues relevant to law students, small law firms, and in-house lawyers.

To get to know our new senior LP writer a little better, here's a Q and A with George Khoury:

FindLaw offers more than 40 newsletters covering everything from circuit court rulings, to amusing legal news, to the latest in legal technology. If you want to get the latest legal information delivered straight to your email, FindLaw newsletters are the place to go.

Now, FindLaw is launching "What the L?" -- its newest newsletter offering that serves as a digest of the best content and resources curated specifically for law students.

We like to maintain a robust social media presence, which means we tweet. A lot. Last year we tweeted over 4,000 times. And some of those Twitter posts resonated with our followers a bit more than others.

Here are our five most clicked-on tweets of 2016:

Huge political moments spawn a myriad of legal questions. And this presidential election was a huge political moment. The campaign itself sparked questions ranging from Canadian immigration to executive orders, defamation lawsuits to the Second Amendment. So what were FindLaw readers searching for come Election Day?

Here's a look ...

Here at FindLaw, the details matter.

We're not just talking about the legal nuances our readers depend on us for, we're talking the tiny, editorial subtleties most people are likely to overlook -- because even when you're dealing with millions of pages of content, the small things still matter. Here's how FindLaw finds pleasure in the details and a quick overview of some of the small, small changes you might notice throughout the site.

In this Insider series, we're highlighting FindLaw employees who have been with the company the longest. Today we're excited to feature Lorna Beich, who joined FindLaw in 2003. She currently serves as the company's User Support Specialist.

In recognition of our ability to provide small firms and solo practitioners with the best AdWords advertising solutions, Google named FindLaw a Google AdWords Premier SMB Partner. The elite designation verifies FindLaw's deep AdWords expertise, established track record of administering online advertising campaigns, and especially its ability to manage PPC campaigns to help law firm clients grow their businesses.

The award is not just based on what FindLaw has already done for its clients -- it also means that our customers' campaigns will now be enhanced with additional Google support and resources, access to the latest Google technology, and technical and sales assistance. So while we couldn't be prouder of our past achievements, we couldn't be more excited about what the partnership means for our future.

Trust: It's in Our DNA at FindLaw.com

I am not sure what got me thinking about this post in the From the Managing Editor series. Maybe it was some entertaining videos from our national sales conference. Maybe it was the annual goal setting last month. Maybe it was the post I wrote a few weeks ago about FindLaw's big 20th birthday. In any case, I started thinking about some values we hold to be crucial to the way we do business here at Thomson Reuters; most of all, the value of trust.

FindLaw celebrated its 20th birthday in January 2016. Over the past two decades, FindLaw has gone through so many changes, it's hard to imagine the company's humble beginnings as a Silicon Valley startup. A number of current employees, however, don't need to imagine -- they were there.

In this new Insider series, we're highlighting FindLaw employees who have been with the company the longest. Today we have the pleasure of featuring Andy Zangrilli, FindLaw's Business Lead, Cases and Codes in Sunnyvale, California.
