Welcome Lisa Needham, Our New Deputy Editor


I’m excited to announce that we’ve promoted Lisa Needham to Deputy Editor of Lawyerist. Starting today, she’ll be in charge of managing all our publishing channels, including the website, the Lawyerist Insider email newsletter, social networks, the Lawyerist Podcast, survival guides, books, etc.

This is a pretty big change for us, but Lisa has substantial experience as a practicing lawyer and in the world of publishing (most recently at Wonkette and Bitter Empire, and occasional freelance work like this post at Rewire), and we are excited to have her on board.

Lisa has already been writing for Lawyerist for nearly two years, covering information and ideas you can use in your law practice. We are excited to see what she can do as Deputy Editor!

Unfortunately, that also means our current Editor, Holden Page, will be leaving us. Holden has been a valuable member of our team and key to Lawyerist’s growth over the last two years, but we aren’t able to keep him on board. Fortunately, he has agreed to stay on through the end of May to help with the transition and ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.

Please welcome Lisa to the helm of Lawyerist!
