Create Napa-Style Estate Experiences for Your Attorney-Clients

I'm still celebrating my birthday thanks to Tom. And the celebration includes lots of great wine.Ever since my director of education stopped us from serving wine at our breaks at the CLNC Certification Seminars (darn), Tom and I have looked for every opportunity to go wine tasting and usually get that chance around the New Year's holiday.

Dare to Appear Foolish

I'm celebrating my birthday today and want to thank all of you who sent the fantastic cards, emails and presents. Your generous thoughts, prayers and messages mean so much to me. (Whoever sent the 2005 Chateau Petrus Pomeral... you really shouldn't have.) Also, I would love to share what Tom has planned for this evening, but this blog is rated G. Suffice it to say, "What happens in Texas, stays in Texas."

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: USB Driving Me Crazy!

I haven’t gotten into the “cloud” yet. Something about keeping my documents in the vast reaches of Cyberspace doesn’t appeal to me. But for a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who needs to move documents from one computer to another, I tend to prefer “sneakerspace.” This is where USB flash drives (or memory sticks) stand out. I don’t like to email confidential documents and burning them onto a CD is time consuming. Instead I jack a USB drive into one of the spare ports on my computer and drag the document(s) onto the drive. The hardest part is remembering to get the drive back from the recipient. It’s also another way to carry or send a set of your important data, reports, presentations, graphics, etc., from one location to another without having to carry a laptop or burn multiple CDs.

Ask Vickie: Attorney-Client Contracts

Vickie,I was hired by an attorney to locate a testifying expert. When I sent the contract to the attorney to sign, he sent it back requesting that I put the plaintiff's name in the contract instead of his. I learned in the CLNC® Certification Program that the contract is always between the law firm and me and that is how I have always done it. Should I consider his request or stick with the way I was taught?
