LexBlog Survives Seattle Snowpocalypse 2012!

Okay, maybe it’s not quite this sunny and nice just yet, but temperatures have started to rise and we are thawing out. LexBlog staff is back in the office and back in action. For those of you who hail from snowier climes who are wondering how two measly days of inclement weather could cause the […]

Winter hits LexBlog; reduced office staff 1/18/12

Can you find the Space Needle in this picture? We don’t get a lot of snow here in Seattle, but when we do it pretty much grinds life to a halt. (The good news is that it generally melts away as quickly as it came.) Due to the snow in the greater Seattle metro area […]

LexBlog Volunteers at Northwest Harvest Food Bank

This time of year, it’s important to give back to your community and help people in need. To that respect, the entire LexBlog staff took a few hours out of our busy lives to volunteer at Northwest Harvest last week, and I thought I’d share our experience with you. Northwest Harvest is Washington’s “Statewide hunger […]

Looking back on a year at LexBlog

October 7 marks my 1-year anniversary with LexBlog. It is auspicious, for me at least, that this fell within National Customer Service Week.  I have always been committed to helping people and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to do that on a daily basis here at LexBlog. As I reflect back, while there […]

2011 Client Survey Results

Thank you everyone who participated in our first annual survey sent out in June of this year. I am a big believer that if you are going to ask people to take the time to fill out a survey, then you also owe it to them to provide feedback on the results. The first question […]

Here at LexBlog, we pride ourselves in offering one of the best work environments around.

LexBlog Value: Live in the Shoes of the Client

Cordell Parvin caught my attention yesterday when he posted about an essential skill law school may not be teaching future lawyers: quality interaction with clients. Cordell writes: Law school teaches students to think like a lawyer, but it does not teach students to think like a client. Likewise, many other majors and disciplines don’t train […]

LexBlog Value: Give Nothing But Your Best

Like it or not, competition is everywhere.  It is one of the key elements of the human experience.  Just think about it—every time you clock in, you are competing for your job.  As you age, you are competing with nature and genetics to stay alive.  When you shop for groceries, you are evaluating prices and quality and […]

LexBlog Value: Be Frugal

LexBlog’s first core value is to be frugal. ‘Frugal’ connotes ‘miserly’ or ‘cheap’ to many, but this is not its true definition. Merriam Webster defines ‘frugal’ as characterized by or reflecting economy in the use of resources. Being frugal isn’t about channeling Ebenezer Scrooge — it’s about being prudent with one’s time and money. For example, I’m typing this […]

Communicating LexBlog’s Values

We launched the first of a series of articles about LexBlog’s values with Angelo Carosio’s Open, Honest, and Frank post, discussing how we are open and honest both internally and with our clients. And you’ll soon see an article from Helen Pitlick about being frugal. So, I was encouraged to read Rosanna M. Fiske’s post […]

LexBlog Value: Be Open, Honest and Frank

Here at LexBlog, we are serious about being honest: Serious about being honest to our clients and about being honest to each other. We don’t like keeping things from our clients and our office environment thrives on being open. Because of this, one of our 6 core values is “Be Open, Honest, and Frank,” and […]
