OverFlow Legal
'Like you, we love being part of the discussion when it comes to the business of law, new legal cases within our practice areas and the future of legal practice in the information age. The journey we take as aspiring lawyers, established legal professionals or observers of the legal profession is more interesting than a book full of case law and statutes.

The Privacy Dilemma
"The more of our lives that we put online, the less privacy we have. It is as simple as that. And this is a problem that will just get worse over time.
