Seriously, anyone that reads this blog on a regular basis, please head over to the 2007 Weblog Awards and vote for Scott Greenfield’s Simple Justice in the best law blog category.

#1) Scott/Simple Justice deserves it on the merits.

#2) Criminal defense lawyer blogging is still in its infancy; those of us that are interested need to promote it.

Yes, I’m attempting to stuff the ballot box. I’ll be voting once a day, as the rules allow. All I’m asking is that you log in and cast your ballot at least once.

Heck, the other finalists all are fine candidates:

Above the Law
How Appealing
Volokh Conspiracy
Sui Generis
Wall Street Journal Law Blog
Likelihood Of Confusion
Ms JD Changing the Face of the Legal Profession

Several, in fact, are on my RSS reader. But there’s a reason that Hollywood puts out TV shows and movies about criminal prosecution and defense, and ignores bankruptcy, divorce and other civil lawyers… it’s boring.

Scott writes interesting topical posts several times a day, on a subject we are all interested in, no matter what our profession. Vote now.

I’ll make you a deal.  Leave me a comment (or email me) after you vote for Simple Justice, and I’ll make sure to link back to your blog over the next month or so.

  • I really appreciate the plug. The big boys have the inside track, and a new blawg like mine needs all the help it can get. Thanks, Jamie.

  • Jamie,
    I’m sorry but I have already voted for Sui Generis. You are right that Scott Greenfield’s blog is excellent, but Nicole has been blogging for several years and the quality of her blog has only increased with age. I am updating my aggregator and making a special effort to include all of the new blogs so that I can highlight them at Legal Blogwatch and give them the visibility they deserve (including your blog). But as far as voting for the best blogs, I have to award points to longevity because having blogged for close to five years, I know how hard it is to keep things fresh on the blog and run a law practice.

  • Trademarks and copyrights…


  • Erk. I spoiled the joke by linking to the wrong blog in my URL info. Now it’s set right.


  • It appears that Scott Greenfield’s Simple Justice did not win although he did place in the top. I agree that Simple Justice has been one of the most useful in my practice, along with Defending People — the Art & Science and Grits for Breakfast and A Public Defender and Underdog and all the rest — they are great !!!
