Many people can’t help but compare themselves to others and judge others. This accomplishes nothing other than maybe making the person doing so feel good, at least for a moment. Talking about people doesn’t breed success or opportunity. Nor does it reflect well on those who do it. On the other hand, talking about ideas and thoughts leads to learning, growing and success. I can talk about successful attorneys who develop a lot of work or I can talk about ideas to develop business myself and come up with a plan to do so. One has a chance to lead…
Today I sat down for a conversation with Attorney Kathryn Burmeister, author of “Overcoming Addiction to the Status Quo” which I believe should be on the reading list of every lawyer and law student. The post A Conversation With Kathryn Burmeister, Attorney and Author of “Overcoming Addiction to the Status Quo” appeared first on LawLytics.…
Dwight Golann just wrote a nice article about mediators’ experiences mediating on Zoom: “I Sometimes Catch Myself Looking Angry or Tired …”  The Impact of Mediating by Zoom, published in CPR’s Alternatives to the High Cost of Litigation. Dwight solicited mediators’ reactions on the International Academy of Mediators listserv as well as in two focus groups.  He got responses from leading mediators in the US, Canada, and Britain who had collectively conducted more than 2000 Zoom mediations. Here are some highlights, though it’s worth reading the full article, which is pretty short. People often feel as connected and friendly as…

Consequences of an Out-of-State DUI in Arizona A DUI conviction can lead to many serious repercussions in any state. Arizona, however, is notorious for punishing operating…
WTF is an NFT?  Recently, Influencers like Paris Hilton and Jake Paul have been publicly advocating for NFT’s. So what exactly is an NFT and why should I care?   NFT stands for – “Non-Fungible Token” – which basically means it’s a one-of-a-kind token and cannot be replaced with another NFT. For example, you could trade a dollar for a different dollar, and it would hold the same value, but if you trade one NFT for another, it will never be valued the same – think of them like unique trading cards.   NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency that supports NFTs by storing extra information about them that makes them work differently than the Ethereum cryptocurrency.   NFTs were first introduced to purchase digital art online, or more importantly, an NFT serves as proof…
Our bodies are beautiful machines that evolved over millions of years to keep us alive and healthy.  My practice requires me to do a lot of studying about the human body.  I am continually amazed as I come into contact with the autonomic processes that go on behind the scenes.  For example, our kidneys have to excrete just the right amount of water to keep our sodium levels within the normal range.  Our immune systems keep constant watch for foreign invaders.  The autonomic system watches and controls our blood pressure, our heart rate, our respiration rate and so many other…
Question: People frequently ask me why they should hire me, Richard Keyt, to form their Arizona limited liability company instead of LegalZoom?
