Are You Sure You Want To Go To Law School?

"What is law school like?" "Would you still go knowing what you do now?"   I am most frequently asked these two questions now that I am done with law school. However, the same people do not ask them. Those who have been through the process skip the first, as they already know that answer, and go directly to the second. The people that ask the first do not even know to ask the second.   The first is born of natural curiosity we humans possess: the desire to experience things we may never have the opportunity (or interest) to go through ourselves. I...

A Lot of Cases, A Lot of Lawyers

As I was recently choosing a legal trivia question for one of the community events we spoke at, I almost fell out of my chair.  The ultimate question—how many court cases were filed in 2019 in Ohio?   The Answer: 2,875,420!   Granted, this is the total number amongst all State Courts in Ohio—which is municipal court, mayor’s court, common pleas court, and the courts of appeals—this includes traffic, civil, and criminal.  However, it does not include threatened litigation, federal cases, and administrative proceedings.   Imagine that—out of Ohio’s population of almost 12 million people, this means that approximately 25% of people will face a legal issue...

Seek To Understand

It goes without saying the world has been challenging for most of us in the past year. Between the pandemic and the election, it often felt like every conversation was another opportunity to find a difference of opinion with someone. As most people in the legal field will tell you, dealing with a difference of opinion seems to go with the territory. However, many of these conversations felt different, less like the minor disagreements we have on a daily basis and more like an argument could happen at any time. As someone who has the opportunity to speak with people from...

Practical COVID-19 Finance Tips from a CFO

Covid 19 Finance Tips

Fear and uncertainty are what most people are dealing with emotionally and financially these days.  Control over many aspects of life has been taken away or changed.  There are not a lot of options at this point, other than to abide by directives from the government and do our part.  Your financial situation may have changed, and you could be wondering what to do now, or maybe it hasn’t changed and you’re wondering if your emergency reserves will hold up. If you’re one of the many that has found themselves unemployed, look to see if Fannie Mae or Freddy Mac own...

Innovating on an Ancient Tradition

Innovating on an Ancient Tradition

It would be unwise to go to a surgeon that was trained using the 1900's methodologies. But most of us don't give a second thought to the reality that the delivery of legal services has not changed significantly since at least 1900. The world has changed a great deal in the last 120 years, and we believe that so should the way legal services are delivered. At White Law Office, we are working hard to carry forward our value of innovation inside the archaic tradition of law. From creating satellite offices to having legal forms available online, to making virtual consultations a reality, White Law Office is seeking out...
