In the wildfires that spread across Southern California last week, law firms and law schools were among those forced to evacuate, as the National Law Journal reported this week. Some of the lawyers who were directly affected by the fires tell their stories on the latest edition of the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer. My co-host J. Craig Williams and I interview Mark C. Zebrowski, managing partner of Morrison & Foerster’s San Diego office, MoFo associate Katherine L. Parker, and lawyer and blogger Dan Hull of the San Diego firm Hull McGuire. In addition to hearing how the fire affected them, we discuss MoFo’s Helping Handbook for the 2007 Southern California Wildfires, a 72-page legal guide for individuals and small businesses, which the firm published even as the fires were still burning.

As you listen to the podcast (which you can do here) you may want to visit William’s blog and view this set of dramatic photographs of the fire shot by his Web designer.
