A new direction for my career

I have joined Jaffe Associates as vice president of editorial services and director of Jaffe’s WritersForLawyers.com. (Read the formal announcement — I swear I didn’t pick the music.)

Jaffe provides a range of business development services and products to law firms and other professional services firms in North America and Europe. It has four main areas of focus: business development consulting, media relations, business development technology, and creative services. Among other things, it is becoming one of the top Web design firms in the country.

Its WritersForLawyers.com is the leading source for expert legal writing resources. It matches the writing needs of lawyers and law firms with experienced legal journalists to ghostwrite or polish articles, biographies, practice area descriptions, case studies or any business-development piece.

I am excited about this position because I will be involved in a range of overlapping areas of writing, marketing, media relations and Web design. One area I particularly look forward to is helping law firms design and develop blawgs of their own.

And Jaffe is a virtual company, so I can work from my home in lovely Rockport, Mass. Drop me a line at my new e-mail address.
