Joel H. Seachrist, a partner with Beckman & Seachrist in Westfield, N.Y., has launched a blog he calls Small Town Lawyer. Here is why: “That name has a dual meaning in that, while I practice in a small town, the bulk of my practice is representing several small, mostly rural towns.”

One intended audience of the new blog is town officials in New York. But Seachrist also plans to post on issues of interest to lawyers, particularly those in solo and smaller law offices and those who represent smaller muncipalities across New York state.
