Hi, I’m Sam
Rather than juggle several business cards, I just have one that leads here, where you can find out all about me.
What I do for money
The Glover Law Firm
I have litigated consumer issues in state and federal court in Minnesota, and I have represented small businesses. Now, I handle appeals and motion practice for individuals and in consultation with other lawyers.
Lawyerist, a blog I started in 2007, began as a place for me to rant about bad legal software. Over the last five years or so (depending on when you read this) it has grown into a business that continues to grow at a sometimes-alarming pace.
What I do for service
I have served on the HOME Line board of directors since July 2008, although I have been involved with HOME Line in one form or another since I volunteered with the tenant hotline during law school. (I even redesigned HOME Line’s logo and website.)
Volunteer Lawyers Network
I joined the Volunteer Lawyers Network board of directors in June 2010, after volunteering with VLN for years. At one point, I helped VLN design and implement a debt buyer clinic for consumers that was later integrated into VLN’s other clinics. In 2011, VLN even named me its Volunteer of the Year.
What I look like
If you are curious, or if you are hoping to recognize me when we meet for coffee instead of wandering around asking people if they are meeting someone from the Internet, here is what I look like with a suit on (well, what I looked like with a suit on a few years ago):
(Actually, I rarely wear a suit, so this picture may not be all that helpful.)
