Dating site for lawyers

Have you ever wanted an online dating forum where you can meet other attorneys from around the country? Tired of those generic dating sites that make you sift through boring teachers, accountants, and sales people when all you want is a creative, affluent, and attractive lawyer?

The Dolce Network has just the thing for you! It’s Lawdate.com, apparently the first site that is exclusively for attorneys (or those looking for one.) Wendy C. Freedman, a lawyer who launched the site, said this site allows like-minded eligible men and women connect (who all are apparently “creative, affluent, and attractive” professionals).

If you didn’t meet your potential attorney spouse in law school, through your firm, or any other legal contacts, here’s another way to make that legal union happen.

Last time I checked, there were more than 1,000 people who belonged to the site. Although the company is hyping the site’s launch as this week, I think it must have been localized to California for a while based on the location and number of people on it already.

And just as I suspected, there are more women than men on the site. That’s typically how it is in the real and online dating worlds.

In conversations with co-workers and friends, most agree that we don’t want to marry someone in the same profession as us. While it’d be nice to come home to someone who can relate to your work life, it’s also nice to leave that life at the office. Being married to another doctor, teacher, or attorney may lead to more conversations about work, and really, who wants to spend their off hours discussing legal briefs or blood pressure?

If you’d rather date some other kind of affluent professional, The Dolce Network plans on launching TheDr.Date.com, CapitolHillDate.com, and EntertainmentIndsturyDate.com.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. If the end result is to simply record the spoke word, then perhaps some day digital recording may eventually be the status quo. However, it is a shallow view to believe the professional court reporter's function is to simply report the spoken word and nothing else. There are many aspects to being a professional court reporter, and many aspects involved in producing a professional and accurate transcript. A properly trained professional steno court reporter has achieved a skill set in a field where the average dropout rate in court reporting schools across the nation is 80% due to the difficulty of mastering the necessary skills. To name just a few "extras" that a court reporter with proper training brings into a courtroom or a deposition suite; an understanding of legal procedure, technology specific to the legal profession, and an understanding of what is being said by the attorneys and litigants (which makes a huge difference in the quality of the transcript). As to contracting, or anti-contracting the argument is simple. The court reporter as governed by our ethical standards is to be the independent, unbiased individual in a deposition or courtroom setting. When one has entered into a contract with any party, insurance carrier, etc., then that reporter is no longer unbiased. I have been a court reporter for over 30 years and I echo Mr. Richardson's remarks that I too am here to serve.

  3. A competitive bid process is ethical and appropriate especially when dealing with government agencies and large corporations, but an ethical line is crossed when court reporters in Pittsburgh start charging exorbitant fees on opposing counsel. This fee shifting isn't just financially biased, it undermines the entire justice system, giving advantages to those that can afford litigation the most. It makes no sense.

  4. "a ttention to detail is an asset for all lawyers." Well played, Indiana Lawyer. Well played.

  5. I have a appeals hearing for the renewal of my LPN licenses and I need an attorney, the ones I have spoke to so far want the money up front and I cant afford that. I was wondering if you could help me find one that takes payments or even a pro bono one. I live in Indiana just north of Indianapolis.
