Positioning One’s Self for the Changes That Are Coming.
They say this economy is the time to position one’s self for future growth and success. I concur. So, I have completed a robust Findlaw (By West/Thomson) website, www.hunterlawfirm.net ; a J. Burton Hunter III Facebook Page, and this blog. I have taught myself how to use Pathagoras (www.pathagoras.com ), Snagit, and various other software. I read half dozen “computer mags” a month. Have purchased Word 2007 and read it’s manual. Am planning on sending out 700-1000 letters for former clients offering them access to these valuable tools. And, am reading “The Facebook Era”.
“Times are Changin” and I intend to be in the forefront of that change for the legal profession. With these three sites, I intend to share information and content which is simply not done by other attorneys. It is not “do it yourself”! How can I teach you to do in your first case, or claim, what I have done thousands of times? I cannot, and you should not!
Rather, I wish to educate you on the issues, on my fees, my experience, and other things a person needs to know before hiring an attorney. All types of litigation have pitfalls and potholes, but family law, and personal injury and insurance cases, have some especially dangerous risks. I will list more of those risks in future posts.

Burton, I couldn’t agree more with your statement that this is the time to position for the future. So glad to hear you are reading The Facebook Era – let me know what you think of it.
Author, The Facebook Era
Thanks for your kind comments. I am enjoying the book, jumping around now, but will also read it back to back. I think the key is provide good content on any site where I appear. I shall try to do so and see what comes of it. Burt
I am 2/3 finished. Agree with the main premise. I am small town attorney, family, personal injury and civil trial practice. Our population is @ 5 years behind urban American in internet use, so much of what I do is “on faith” for the future. “The Facebook Era” is best read in conjunction with a “hands on” Facebook manual.
