Thinking of Things I’m Thankful for…

GiveThanksIt’s time once again to think of everything I’m thankful for…especially as a legal geek.  In no particular order, here goes.

This year, I am thankful for:


  • My awesome geek partner, Josh, who picked up the slack during so many parts of my crazy year.
  • The ABA Journal, who just named us a Blawg 100 honoree, which is so exciting!
  • Our great guests, like Judges Sciarrino and Grewal and e-discovery guru (and fellow Longhorn) Craig Ball.
  • Howard Stern.  I’m a huge Stern fan and he’s given me fodder for multiple posts, plus I had a Twitter exchange with one of his producers as a result of a LG post, which was beyond exciting (even my kids knew what a big deal that was)!
  • Those judges out there who write great opinions and aren’t afraid to express some creativity in their opinions.
  • A broken hand.  If I have to injure myself (and, apparently, it’s what I do), I’ll take that over a ruptured Achilles’ tendon any day.  It’s actually taught me to relax (a bit), but it makes typing tough so I’m ending my list here.

ThanksgivingHappy Thanksgiving, everyone!

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).
