The Seattle Times wrote about Kevin O’Keefe today, the creator of my blog (not to mention the blogs of my Edge colleagues Ed Wesemann and Robert Millard). They featured Kevin in a "Business and Technology" article called: LexBlog teaches lawyers the basics of blogging.
It is no surprise that he understands the legal profession – read these bullet points on Kevin:
- President and founder of LexBlog, the leading provider of marketing blogs to lawyers and other professional service firms.
- Founded Prairielaw.com, the leading online law community for consumers and small businesspeople, acquired by LexisNexis in 2001 and now incorporated into Martindale-Hubbell’s lawyers.com.
- Served as a VP of Business Development for LexisNexis’ Martindale-Hubbell.
- Trial lawyer of 17 years, ceased practicing law in 1999.
- Successfully marketed own law firm on the Internet in such a positive way that USA Today said “If O’Keefe isn’t careful, he may wind up giving lawyers a good name.”
- While practicing law served as sustaining member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and board member of state trial lawyers association.
PUNCHLINE: If your firm is considering blogging (and if you aren’t you should) in my opinion there is one supplier that stands head and shoulders above the rest, Kevin O’Keefe’s LexBlog
