Below are some of the comments we've received from lawyers up to 9/96.
(See -- it IS possible for lawyers to be nice without being paid to be.)
We've received lots more since then, but you get the idea.
Subject: Fantastic New Site
Of all places, I was scouting AOL when I came across a reference
to the 'Lectric Law Library. Forgive me if someone on the list
has already told you all about it, but in case no one has, run,
don't walk, to http://www.lectlaw.com
Excellent resources. But take your sense of humor with you--these
guys are not stuffed shirts by any means.

attorney who publishes the leading e-zine dealing w/law on the
Just checked this one out, and "DITTO" to (above) comment. The
tour and humor was a nice touch :-) -- Dayton, OH
I have been a lawyer for a number of years and have litigated my
fair share of cases. I recently came about your "rubber room" and,
as a result, I must share the following.
I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF!! BRAVO!
Have to tell you ..... This is a great idea. Wish it were mine.

Yo, Ralf! This is the most fun I've had with lawyers since I quit
This is great. Your forms may be somewhat basic, but I have spent
8 years as a solo searching, buying, pasting, inventing, etc. Now
you give the new solo an economical start at least. Thanks.
Looking forward to more.
i love this site, and i'm even an atty! (again)
Let me first stress out, that your really one of the best law-pages
in the web. Or better do not say "law-pages" because it seems to me,
that your site could be more than only a "law"-page but possibly a
forum of communication and maybe the first real virtual library.

As a newly licensed lawyer, I find your articles offer a great
perspective for my practice of law and what clients need. The
links are a great service. Keep it up!
i liked your site so much yesterday that i went back for more today.
today i amused myself with your client jokes (it's ok, i was a
lawyer in a former life). way to go! it's about time we lawyers
used all of those brains to come up with some truly witty and
sparkling insights about the human race (and clients, too).
I'm an attorney practicing in San Francisco and this is my first
visit... It is wonderful and I will be back here many times... in
addition to the comprehensive resources, I like the "look" of your
I just found your sight for the first time while surfing the net.
As a practising attorney in Miami Beach, I wanted to compliment
you on the great job you have done in putting together a wealth
of information for both laypeople and attorneys alike.
Let me tell you how delighted I am to have stumbled across the
'Lectric Law Library. It is a wonderful idea. I hope that
lawyers and law-related professionals embrace the 'Lectric Law
Library and turn it into a genuinely cooperative effort to get
legal resources on-line for public use. Just a thought from a
frustrated lawyer living overseas. Please put me on whatever
listservers you may have. I want to be a regular patron.
Excellent pages, BTW. Humorous, informative, engaging, insightful.
I'd lose the lawyer joke, but perhaps I am just sensitive having
stumbled onto a mean-spirited and hateful page at New Mexico State
Univ. filled with lawyer jokes, including the one you use. --
What a great site!!! I'm an attorney doing some pro bono legal
work for a group of native americans. Once again, very nice site.

'Lectric is wonderful! I had a fun afternoon playing yesterday.
Please send me your ideas on adding lawyers to the fold. I am a
new solo practitioner in Baltimore. Can write stuff for you too.
