FindLaw Insider - The FindLaw.com News Blog

Recently in What's New at FindLaw.com Category

We've all got our podcast libraries by now that can save us during our daily commutes, distance runs, or even dishwashing at night. You might have some comedy casts to brighten your day, a couple sports shows for scores and analysis, and maybe some long-form stories to give you a longer view of a particular person or topic. But where are you getting your legal news from?

Starting this week, you can get it from FindLaw, the leading provider of online legal information for consumers and small businesses. We've just launched our 5in5 Podcast, a lightning quick five minutes recapping the most important, amusing, or outrageous recent legal decisions.

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.

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.

FindLaw Turns 20!

Time flies when you're having fun.

Of all the clichés I could think of about the passage of time, this is the one that I think best describes just how the little start-up that could -- FindLaw.com -- reached its 20th anniversary. Happy Birthday FindLaw. Next year you can drink!

See, fun. That is part of our ethos here at FindLaw, even though we are all grown up. We work every day to fulfill our mission to our users and bring them solutions to their legal problems, and we think you can tell if we love what we do. We think you can tell if we really believe that bringing people free, accurate, useful information and resources is important and yes, even fun. But how did we get here? Here's the story.
