Adams and Reese Partner Jeff Richardson’s blog, iphonejd.com, was selected to the 2014 ABA Journal Blawg 100 Hall of Fame. Richardson's blog has been named to the ABA Journal Blawg 100 every year since 2009, and also won best overall in the legal technology category in 2010, 2011 and 2013.
In 2012, the ABA Journal established the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame for those blogs which had consistently been outstanding throughout multiple Blawg 100 lists. The inaugural list contained 10 inductees; this year, the publication added 10 more, bringing the total to 30.
“Man is only as good as the tool he uses. Mobile computing has fundamentally changed the way lawyers practice law. Jeff Richardson writes about those tools and tells us how they can be used to make us better lawyers. His reviews of apps and accessories explain critical features and limitations in the context of how a lawyer would use those professionally and in personal life beyond work.” — Ron Schultz, senior counsel at ConocoPhillips in Houston
The ABA Journal is the flagship magazine of the American Bar Association, and it is read by half of the nation’s 1.1 million lawyers every month.
Richardson, who practices in the firm’s New Orleans office, launched the blog to explore lawyerly uses for the iPhone, which he describes in his bio as the “perfect handheld device” he’s been searching for since the late 1980s. Richardson has served as an adjunct professor at Tulane University, teaching “Computers and the Law.”
