Lawtender Blog Pours Out a Round of Sanity –
Pros at the Law Game Belly Up at Virtual Pub and Muse on All Things Legal.
It’s only when you’ve been in the game for a long time that you really notice things. Thomas Erskine Ice has been in the law game a long time. Almost thirty years to be more specific. In that time, Ice has received a number of awards, recognitions, a prestigious AV-rating and founded a leading private litigation firm in South Florida. He’s also represented a wide range of clients from all walks of life.
“This kind of varied experience gives you a unique perspective on the practice of law and the different ways in which the court system interacts with people in different economic situations.” Ice remarked. “The Lawtender blog is a place to present that perspective, and hopefully catalyze public debate.”
The Lawtender is a platform to talk about legal issues in a free, open and academic manner. It has just a hint of raconteur-ing to go along with the scholarly approach, providing a refreshing take on what matters in the law.
The hope is that others follow Ice’s example by taking the spirit of what Lawtender represents and trying to initiate tangible change in the system. He’s doing that by founding a people-first, attorney-powered online legal resource called LegalYou.
“You need an innovative platform to discuss the more esoteric aspects of legal innovation like LegalYou,” Ice said. “And it needs to be from the viewpoint of someone in the trenches, not an ivory tower. The Lawtender blog is all that, with a twist, “ said Ice, referencing the blog’s tag line. “The ‘twist’ is just a hint of good-natured irreverence that stems from not taking ourselves too seriously.”
