Link of the Day – Bag And Baggage Blog

For the month of September, I am going to use my Link of the Day feature to highlight legal blogs that I think are interesting and useful. Some may not be directly related to personal injury or Social Security disability law, but all of us who represent injured and disabled people occasionally need help in other areas. Some are new, and some have been mentioned here before. Today’s entry is:

It’s only through a terrible oversight that I have never featured one of the premier, and pioneering,  legal blogs here. Newport Beach attorney Denise Howard writes Bag and Baggage, which should be read frequently by lawyers in any practice area. Here is her description of herself and her blog:

I am an appellate, intellectual property and technology lawyer (professional background).

Though I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I now live in Newport Beach. While at UCLA (B.A. 1987), I majored in English and earned departmental honors for a thesis on the works of T.S. Eliot. After college, my interests took a more South Campus turn. I began studying computers and technological issues while I earned my law degree from Boalt Hall in Berkeley (J.D. 1990). Today, I am likely to be listening to a podcast, particularly one of the legal variety. I also write Lawgarithms, contribute to Between Lawyers, host an audio series at called this WEEK in LAW, host another audio series at IT Conversations called Sound Policy, and have a little fun on Vox. My father is a lawyer turned author, whose work I will plug at any opportunity.

I am a Dallas, Texas lawyer who has had the privilege of helping thousands of clients since 1971 in the areas of Personal Injury law and Social Security Disability.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
