Charles - Don't sweat the snobs. They envy your freedom. (In fact, I'm thinking right now of that cry from the movie Braveheart: "FRREEEEEE-DOM!") And as an insider, I can tell you that BigLaw may be big, but you're absolutely right that that doesn't necessarily imply that it's good. Because it's not. I've seen too much.

Excellent, Chuck. I do this same type of work but don't specialize in this one area. Would definitely like to do more of it, though. (And I'll stay outta Baja Oklahoma, too!) ;^) Ben Callicoat
Chuck - nice post, covered some topics that are in the forefront of my thoughts this weekend. About three months or so ago I launched my bankruptcy blog - aimed at the lay person who is looking for information about filing bankruptcy, or who needs defense of foreclosure or other creditor/indebtedness defense. I'm beginning to get calls -- I've noticed an uptick in the last month or so -- but I really know nothing about SEO. Very interested in this whole topic as I've been mulling over how to approach other attorneys who know me. (Typical conversation with opposing counsel: Them: "Oh, you do consumer bankruptcy? Great, I've been looking for someone to refer these cases to.) Like you, I want to expand my practice to focus on the stay and FDCPA litigation areas. Think I'm going to target some of my fellow attorneys with a targeted letter/email campaign (individually focused.) Your thoughts? Ben Callicoat
