Why I am thankful for The Legal Geeks

FeastHappy Thanksgiving to my U.S. friends and happy Thursday to all of our international Legal Geeks friends!

Today is one of my favorite holidays (I’m a big fan of Arbor Day too) because I get to eat too much with loved ones, watch too much TV, and think about everything that I’ve been grateful for over the past year.

This past year has made me appreciate, even more than usual, my wonderful children and loved ones, but I’ll save those thoughts for Facebook.  Here, I want to say how grateful I am for this very blog and what it’s brought me.  I’m thankful I met, via the wonders of Twitter, my partner-in-geekdom, Mr. Bow Tie Law himself.  Thanks to our shared love of all things geeky, we started this blog, which provides me with endless enterainment (and hopefully entertains others at least half as much).

And working on this blog has broadened my geek experience.  It’s also allowed me to meet some amazing people, including great litigators like Stephanie Sparks and amazing judges like Judge Sciarrino.  It also gave me the opportunity to speak at a fantastic conference – Paraban’s Forensic Innovations Conference in beautiful Midway, Utah.


This blog is only a few months old and it’s already given me so much for which to be thankful.  I can’t wait to see what the year to come brings.  And I hope you all have many things to be thankful for, today and every day!

Jessica has been litigating business and IP disputes for the past decade. During that time, she’s dealt with clients, lawyers, and judges who have varying degrees of appreciation for the challenges of managing discovery in an electronic age. Until the fall of 2011, she was an attorney at a large, Texas-based law firm, where she represented clients in state and federal court nationwide. That fall, she made a long-desired move back to the Midwest and is now a partner at Hansen Reynolds Dickinson Crueger LLC, a litigation boutique based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she continues to litigate while also consulting with business and law firms on e-discovery issues (before, during, and after litigation arises).
