Using the VLW archives

In last week's Virginia Lawyers Weekly, Paul Fletcher posed this hypothetical:

"My client just got served with papers filed by a lawyer named Steven R. Minor with the firm of Elliott, Lawson & Minor in Bristol. I don’t know this guy. How can I get some information about him and his practice?"

One of his answers was to check the archives on VLW.

That could work, evidently those archives include my name in connection with 26 opinions.

A fellow I know in Charlottesville told me a while back that he often sees my name in Lawyers Weekly. I said yes, but not all of those cases are worth bragging about, such as the one where the Virginia Court of Appeals held that I didn't miss that deadline, after all.
