Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

facebook, facebook, facebook

I am jumping headfirst into the facebook craze. Not really sure how deep the water is, or what direction it is flowing in, but I am going for it. I have long been a huge advocate for technology in law practice, and I have been addicted to the internet since the web got its consumer legs last century. I enjoy the technical side of facebook -- the internet technology at play, the graphics, the add-ons. I am studying up on the apparent value, dare I say necessity, of facebook as a marketing tool. I have my personal facebook page (click here for a visit). I have also created a page for my law firm (click here for a visit). And, I have even gotten involved in the creation of a facebook group for Fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (click here for a visit).

Am I realizing any measurable marketing return from my investment yet? Not as far as I can tell. It is interesting to see where a bunch of people from my high school have ended up. I am also impressed with how much time some people spend logged in to facebook. We shall see what happens!
