iPad Becomes Symbol for Cooperative Efforts Among Law Firms

Current Barrister Executive Suites, Inc. tenant Melody A. Kramer, Kramer Law Office, Inc. just received the brand new iPad from Barrister for referring new tenants to her suite at 11622 El Camino Real, #100, in Del Mar, San Diego.  She referred attorneys Briana Rivera and John McAvoy, but she really received a lot more than an iPad in the deal.


Melody is a veteran trial lawyer, practicing as a “solo practitioner” for 16 years, but not practicing “alone.”  For most of her career, Melody has run a hybrid law firm, mixing work directly for her own clients, with freelance work (often ghostwriting of briefs, memos, and presentations) for other lawyers.  When business gets too busy, as it recently has, she has freelance lawyers working for her too.  Melody and her new neighboring tenants Barrister’s Del Mar location, River and McAvoy, now have new opportunities to collaborate on cases, sharing workload, overhead expenses, and moral support.


The new iPad?  Melody will be using it to prepare her upcoming seminar on “Outsourcing for Small Law Firms” which will be presented at selected Barrister locations.  Watch for announcements later this year.
