Aug 30, 2010 Law Crossing adds Jon Katz to its weekly Law Star Hall of Fame
Each week, Law Crossing adds a lawyer to its Law Star Hall of Fame. The website has added me to its list with a review entitled "Jon Katz: An Eclectic Attorney in an Otherwise Predictable Legal System."
Law Crossing’s review heavily repackages some of my clients’ online feedback and information from my website, but better-known information sources also too often skip independent fact-checking, although the review says nothing that concerns me. For instance, when I first became my own boss, in partnership with my former law partner Jay Marks, the Maryland Daily Record posted a story about our law firm that seemed to have relied exclusively on the brief news release that we sent out. Some journalists do follow up with a call to fact check.
