Client Toolbox - Educate yourself with reading blogs

Injuryboard works, even from Des Moines, Iowa.

The InjuryBoard is a collection of attorneys from across the country who work daily to educate the public concerning the issues that affect the justice working men and women receive in the civil court system. We strive to educate you so you can protect yourself, your spouse and family. At the Des Moines regional blog we have been working this month to discuss issues affecting food safety and while Megan Roth, a University of Iowa journalism graduate has been writing and posting about the current issue, I’ve been distracted with one news item after the next that seems to have my immediate attention.

The American Bar Association has picked up our blog and we are doing very well with readership. Listed under the “Tort Law” section we are currently holding the number five position for readership. Not bad for a solo practitioner and journalist from West Des Moines, Iowa. Join us and the other InjuryBoard attorneys as we invite you to comment with your own experiences whether good or bad.
