Introduction and Question
Hello Cutting Edge Law!
I guess this blog post has two purposes. One is to introduce myself to the community, and the other is to pose a question.
So first the intro part:
My name is Andrew Wentzell, and I am a somewhat recent law school graduate. After bouncing around for a couple of years, my wife Beth and I decided it was time to strike out and start a firm. We live in Tallahassee, and have noticed that there is not a strong Comprehensive lawyer presence. We wanted our firm to reflect the ideals and values we share. We opened North Florida Law Collaborative this month, after several months of planning.
As a new firm, I have a lot of time to devote to marketing and developing a presence in Tallahassee. Whereas, I suspect, established firms don't have as much time to give (though perhaps they already have an established presence). Thus,I decided on a plan that would take advantage of my advantage. I decided to develop a series of presentations I could give around town that would increase awareness of comprehensive law and the various vectors we use at North Florida Law Collaborative.
Which leads me to the second part. The first lecture is about ethical wills. I did some research, started writing, and realized that I was repeating myself a bit. I had great ideas about what to say, but my presentation was only 5-10 minutes long once I'd removed the repetitions. Originally I was intending to have a presentation that was about 20 minutes long, so my current version is falling a bit short.
My question to the cuttingedge community is, should I stick to an ethical wills lecture that is only about 5-10 minutes long, or should I try and expand my presentation; maybe have an Estate Planning presentation where ethical wills would be just one portion?
Anyway, thanks for listening to this, and I look forward to being a part of the cuttingedgelaw community.
