I was born to blog. I have only recently come to this realization. As the editor of the Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia (VA) Injuryboard blog website for the past year I have had a great time blogging about personal injury subjects.
My law firm Hajek, Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis, and Appleton based in Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA) has handled automobile accident and FELA cases for many years. Recently, we have put a lot of energy into our marketing to try to develop case leads for people who need a personal injury lawyer in Norfolk / Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA) and throughout the southeastern United States. My law partner, Rick Shapiro, is the editor of the Injuryboard blog website for Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA). When he and folks at the Injuryboard asked me to become editor of this website, I did not know anything about blogging. Frankly, it sounded like a big expenditure of energy without much reward. I found it to be just the opposite.
Everyday I wake up with fresh ideas about personal injury law and topics that I can write about. I get to write the short articles that I hope contain useful information for people searching for a personal injury attorney in Norfolk, Virginia (VA) and Portsmouth, Virginia (VA). I have always loved writing. I get out my dictation machine and record my thoughts on a topic having to do with personal injury practice or wrongful death cases. I know a lot about this subject because I have been practicing law emphasizing personal injury for over 18 years. Then I get to use my editing skills to take the rough draft and finalize it to be placed on the website. I find I really enjoy this form of expression. My goal is to post one article about a personal injury topic on my Norfolk/Portsmouth, Virginia (VA) Injuryboard website everyday. I am proud of my body of work which I believe provides useful information to the general public and particularly for people who have been in a recent car accident or other situation where they have been hurt. I enjoy sharing what I know about a field of law that I have developed expertise in. Also, when I go to Google or some other search engine and type in “Norfolk, Virginia (VA) injury lawyer”, I am proud to see my name and this website pop up as one of the first page of internet information and best sources about personal injury in Virginia (VA).
