The Fixer Bombs In Probate Court
by Jay Reeves

The other day I delivered an oral argument that was powerful, persuasive and perfectly on point - only to realize with dismay that nobody was listening but me.
This happens more often than I'd care to admit. The Fixer in me gets so wrapped up in trying to fix other people and tell them what to do that I don't even notice when they're no longer there.

Do you know what your lawyer's professional liability (LPL) insurance covers before you need to know what it actually covers?
To avoid finding yourself with LPL insurance that does not cover what you truly need- choose the one that is right for you.
by Mark Scruggs

I read an article the other day that said "It is well-recognized that often, when an attorney sues a client for unpaid fees, the client will bring a counterclaim for legal malpractice. Some sources indicate the likelihood of receiving such a counterclaim could be as high as 40%; others place it even higher." Count Lawyers Mutual in the "even higher" group.
