ABA Tech Show was inspiring

Last week, I attended the ABA Tech show with my family in Chicago.  It was my first time to a Techshow and the amount of information presented was overwhelming.  I learned a great deal.  Some of my favorite speakers were Dennis Kennedy, a lawyer and tech guru who spoke about many subjects including podcasting.  Dennis maintains a blog that I highly recommend.  I was able to personally meet and speak with Dennis. For as highly respected as he is in the legal community for his technical saavy, he was warm and humble.  He is the kind of guy that makes one proud to be a lawyer.  Dennis was brilliant and gave me a lot to think about. 

Another wonderful speaker and presenter at Techshow was Jim Calloway.  Jim spoke on many topics including the benefits and burdens of blogging for lawyers.  Like Dennis’ blog, Jim’s blog, Jim Calloway’s Law Practice Tips Blog is a great place to learn about technology in a law office.  I follow both of these blogs on a daily basis.  These gentleman inspired me to start a blog on debt collection law in Michigan and around the nation.  My practice focuses on Michigan debt collection law.

Michigan is a hotbed of legal cases dealing with collection law.  You are undoubtedly aware that our economy is rather depressed.  My law firm is devoted to debt collection law.  Our business is good in good economic times and even better and in worse times.  I can tell you, without a doubt, that if our business is an economic barometer, our economy is doing poorly.

In this blog, I will discuss trends in both Michigan debt collection law and around the nation.  I invite you to share your comments, thoughts and experiences.  I am focusing this blog not just to attorneys, but to others who are involved in credit and collections as well. I look forward to hearing from you.
