Why I Blog

I started blogging about the law back in 2008 when some people thought that blogging was just keeping a public diary. The act of reading through newspapers, the law journal and the latest slip opinions issued by Massachusetts and federal courts is a professional necessity, a way to keep myself up-to-date with breaking law and policy. This daily professional habit seemed to invite more attention.

Why should I keep to myself my enthusiasm about law and its flexibility, arching towards justice? I see my obligation as a personal injury attorney to improve the law, and one essential way to do that is by offering short, and hopefully informative pieces.

When the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was held in custody without having his Miranda rights read to him, most people heard for the first time that there is a public safety exception to the iconic recital of rights.

When the West, Texas fertilizer plant exploded, we learned that compliance with Department of Homeland Security and Environmental Protection Agency regulations might have prevented the explosion and deaths of firefighters who rushed into the building.

Rather than wait for a mishap or tragedy, I believe that all of us should know more about the law so that we understand how important a legal framework is, especially in times of emergency. Researchers have found that in emergencies, ordinary people usually act to create community. Our legal system is built upon the understanding that we share common values. It requires people to act reasonably. I want to help people understand what reasonable means in the eyes of the law. Bear in mind, however, that facts, as always, are king and determine what is reasonable.
