I was surfing the Hulu app a few weeks ago looking for the next binge watch options. I stumbled across a very interesting, and disturbing, documentary series: “Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult.” The four-part series explores NXIVM, the infamous company that was part multi-level marketing, part make your life better with thousand-dollar self-help courses, and […]

I’ve shared a glimpse at the background of Law Powered By Women®. But as with all good things, we’ve evolved. Christy and I always planned that as our practice grew, we would broaden the firm’s horizon.  As it happened, we did grow and thrive. And so a couple of years ago, we embarked on our […]

We didn’t start out as Law Powered By Women®. In fact, we serendipitously fell into it. It was about a year after Christy and I hung our shingle as Luhrsen Goldberg. We paused to consider that perhaps all those folks coincidentally marveling about how amazing it was that we were a female-run law firm might […]

It’s happened. You were in a car accident. You have an injury. It wasn’t your fault, but it also wasn’t catastrophic.  You decline treatment by the paramedics and skip the ambulance ride.

“Sue sells seashells by the seashore, but I stepped on one of Sue’s shells so I want to sue.” That’s how the tongue twister goes, right?

I love creating blogs because they are mostly an opportunity for me to muse poetically (or maybe not so much) about whatever random thought comes to mind. […]

As a group, lawyers aren’t well-regarded (according to The Top Tens, lawyers rank just behind the top spot holders, politicians as the most hated).  Among attorneys, personal injury lawyers probably rank near the bottom. Perhaps it’s the personal injury lawyers on TV boasting about why you should hire them. Or the billboards proclaiming the millions […]

I was heading down the road recently when I saw a billboard that pretty much screamed at me: “Size Matters!” The proponent, as it turned out, was in fact a very large personal injury firm with a marketing budget to match (aka, the Big Guys).  Which got me, a competitor Sarasota/Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch personal injury attorney […]

Lawyers — especially personal injury attorneys — are often regarded with hesitation, contempt and/or disdain. Their reputation? Not always the best.  Maybe you find the commercials over the top. Perhaps there was an episode of your favorite TV show with a smarmy attorney who soured you on the field. Possibly the idea of someone making money […]
