Summary: Andrew Flusche, the writer of the blog “Legal Andrew” provides advice from his own legal experiences aimed at helping those entering the industry and already in it.
Legal Andrew was started as a place for author Andrew Flusche to put his ideas and thoughts out there to share with others. He aimed to post a few tips each week pertaining to internships, law school and legal careers. He does not claim to be an expert and is instead trying to give some advice from what he learned.
Andrew received his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law and is currently licensed by the Virginia State Bar. He has his own law firm in Fredericksburg, Virginia where he focuses on criminal and traffic defense.
Guest blogs are featured occasionally on the blog. One was by Scott Morgan titled, “Avoid Losing your Health Insurance Coverage after Divorce.” Scott explains that you need to make sure you always have coverage so that if there is an emergency you don’t end up with huge medical bills. This means using COBRA, your own employer, Medicaid, or individual insurance. You can try to negotiate the cost into your divorce settlement.
Andrew also discusses in “Why I Use Ruby as my Virtual Receptionist.” As someone that runs his own law firm, Andrew understands how hectic the office can get with just phone calls. He explains in this post how “Ruby” helps him out more than just a basic voicemail does. He points out the fact that many people do not leave voicemails, so by not answering the phone for each call that comes into his office, he is missing out on business.
I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
