I just realized that today, October 29, is my 7-year anniversary at Avvo. It’s also fully a third of my career so far, and represents the longest time I’ve spent with a single employer.
You’d think a lot would change over that period of time, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Avvo has gone from a concept (a concept facing a company-threatening class action at the time I was hired) to the market leader in consumer legal information and guidance. We’ve also:
- Grown from 20 to over 200 employees
- Gone from an attorney rating to a force that drives hundreds of thousands of consumer contacts to lawyers every month
- Moved from nominal revenue to profitability
But some things don’t change. The job remains great fun; it’s challenging and offers something new every day. And I work with terrific colleagues. 1 And then there are all of you attorneys. I love you all! 2 Not only do you make my job possible, but you enrich it with all of the questions, comments and feedback. Even all of the legal theories about how we’re doing something wrong. Thanks for everything – especially keeping me on my toes!
