Amanda Knox to Seek Compensation

Amanda Knox is an infamous name in the legal world. Her recent acquittal landed her in the news once again, and according to reputable news outlets, she will be seeking compensation for her time in Italian prison. Her story came to light when in 2007 she was accused of murdering Meredith Kercher. The news outlets dubbed her “Foxy Knoxy” in regard to her perceived youthful beauty. The prosecution weaved a story of a jealous love triangle gone wrong with Kercher as the victim. When at the crime scene, Italian police were accused of not handling evidence correctly and not following procedure, thus allegedly hindering the investigation. The case reached bizarre heights when Knox was seen doing cartwheels and splits at the police station upon learning of her friend Meredith’s death. Her strange behavior raised suspicion around the world. Was this girl wrongly accused and grieving in a mentally unstable way…Or is she a coldblooded killer?

It’s likely we’ll never know the answer. But in regard to the legal community, the Amanda Knox case is one that will not be forgotten any time soon. Though she has supposedly moved on with her life (she graduated college, has a writing job, and is engaged), she still fascinates the American public. It is a case for a lawyer to study. For instance, if you, as an attorney, had to defend a client like Amanda Knox, how would you go about it and how would you handle and strategize for the incessant media demand?

Qlegal Founder Talks Legal Marketing at Suffolk Law

This past February, Founder and President of Qlegal, Francis McGovern, spoke at Suffolk University Law School in Boston about the importance of marketing and search engine optimization in the legal profession.

Offered by the Center for Advanced Legal Studies, McGovern’s session was part of a day-long offering titled “Jumpstarting Your Practice: A Roadmap for Success.”  McGovern took part in a panel titled “Finding Clients, Working with Clients, Keeping Clients,” which was moderated by Eric J. Parker, who is currently on the board of the school.

McGovern’s seminar on legal marketing delved into the importance of SEO, what it is and how it works to increase traffic to your firm’s website, and in turn, creates more business opportunities for your practice.  Legal marketing is an aspect of law that should not be overlooked in such a competitive industry, and McGovern’s experience in the field makes him a knowledgeable source on the subject, and he was happy to share his expertise with the students of Suffolk University Law School.
