LexisNexis Honors the New York Disability Law Blog as a "Top 25" Workers' Compensation Lawyer Blog for 2008Monday, December 29, 2008
The Lexis Nexis Workers’ Compensation Law Center Powered by Larson’s recently announced the 2008 honorees for the LexisNexis Top 25 Blogs for Workers’ Compensation.
The New York Disability Law Blog, published by Turley, Redmond & Rosasco, LLP, was selected as a 2008 honoree. The New York Workers’ Compensation Alliance Blog, with which we are affiliated, was also honored in the Top 25.
“These blogsites contain some of the best writing out there on workers’ compensation and workplace issues in general,” says the LexisNexis Workers’ Compensation Law Center. “They contain a wealth of information for the workers’ compensation community with timely news items, practical information, expert analysis, tips, frequent postings, and helpful links to other sites. These blogsites also show us how workplace issues interact with politics and culture. Moreover, they demonstrate how bloggers can impact the world of workers’ compensation and workplace issues.”
We are deeply honored by the recognition of LexisNexis, the pre-eminent legal publisher in the United States. When we started the then named Disabled Worker Law Blog in March 2005 as a helpful information portal for those with workers’ compensation and long term disability claims, we never could have imagined the positive impact it would have on the lives of those fighting either insurance companies or the government for the benefits they deserve. Due to the enormous amount of time blogging requires from already over-worked lawyers, many legal blogs die an unnoticed death a few months after launching. Thanks to all our loyal readers and subscibers for making all our hard work worthwhile.
Much thanks goes to Kevin O’Keefe of Lexblog, who not only set up this blog, but was always there for encouragement and technical expertise. We recently lectured together at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York about "Blogging for Lawyers". Kevin and his Real Lawyers Have Blogs site was recently honored by American Bar Association as one of the Top 100 Legal Blogs in the country for 2008. Although the ABA labled him a blog "evangelist", I prefer to call him a good freind. Thanks Kev.
See you all in the blogosphere next year. Happy New Year to all!
