Jacob Sapochnick Interviews Mitch

I was recently interviewed by San Diego Immigration attorney, Jacob J. Sapochnick, aka “The Enchanting Lawyer.”

During the interview, Jacob asked me to share thoughts about the practice of law, trying cases, and the importance of balancing all of the above with family and friends. A substantial portion of the interview involved communication skills using both digital tools and, “old school” people skills. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did!

Video Gaming Lawyer, Ryan Morrison

You’re thinking about creating a brand new video game. What legal steps do you need to take to protect your rights?

You’ve just finished writing the last line of code and are ready to publish your new game to the app store. What should you do before clicking the “submit” button?

Attorney Ryan Morrison shares answers to these questions and much more during our interview. In fact, Ryan is the first to tell you that in the world of entertainment, gaming studios are often taken advantage of or harmed by the wrongdoing of others. Titles are stolen and artwork is copied. In some instances, well financed and established gaming bullies will do all they can to try and force you out of the app stores and if successful, even out of business.

Ruth Carter is the Flash Mob Lawyer

Ruth is building a national reputation as the go-to flash mob lawyer. Her firm also handles areas of law aimed at serving entrepreneurs, innovators, creators, and performers including intellectual property and social media law.

She’s written several books on blogging and at her site and blog, routinely shares legal blogging and law school survival tips, and advises readers not to “lose your personality when you get your JD.”

To get a good, quick, overall idea of where Ruth is coming from, I share her quote in the ABA Journal,

“When I started law school, I drank the Kool-Aid thinking I needed to be in the top 1 percent of my class, hide my piercings and tattoos, and aspire to be a judicial clerk or big-law firm lawyer,” “But I realized very fast that the classic, conservative lawyer ideas weren’t for me.”

Ruth’s building a fascinating practice in Phoenix Arizona and I wanted to share just a small bit of her with you, tattoos, piercings and all, during our interview. Enjoy the show!
