Be My Legal Valentine

As we approach the annual deluge of all things chocolates, roses, and hearts the first thing that comes to mind might not be the legal industry. But perhaps it should be! These light-hearted valentines poke a little fun at all of us that call the legal industry home.  Whether you celebrate today with your partner, kiddos, or a furry companion... these Lawyer (and legal professional) approved Valentines are sure to make it a very Happy Valentine's day.

The Fifth Amendment

While most people think of the right against self-incrimination, this amendment also covers all aspects of due process. Especially important when it comes to stealing someone's heart!




Show Me the Evidence!

In the courtroom, legal practitioners expected evidence to meet some basic parameters including: nonprivileged matter that is relevant to any party's claim or defense and proportional to the needs of the case, considering the importance of the issues at stake in the action, the amount in question. And let me tell you when it is a matter of the heart that bar is especially high!



Don't Break or Modify or Delete my Heart!

The penalty for spoliating a Valentine’s heart might be even stiffer than the million-dollar sanctions and adverse inferences we have seen in eDiscovery. Nothing worse than. An adverse inference of the heart!



Res Ipsa Loquitor

When something speaks for itself, in legal parlance, Res Ipsa Loquitor, what more truly needs to be said!



Hacked my Heart!

You hacked my heart and exfiltrated my love before I knew what hit me! Look out Wikileaks, you have some stiff competition!



The Keeper, not the Janitor!

This Valentine’s heart is held more closely than the ten data sources and backup tapes of the last ten custodians I collected data for!




What more proof do you need?

What better demonstrates a legal eagles love than a hastily made social media graphic, am I right?


*Terms and Conditions may apply

Legal teams are using AI models in a variety of ways and across a multitude of different practice areas.  Law firms and Corporate legal departments alike are benefiting from the improved speed to insight and risk mitigation offered by AI-powered legal tech today.  Many Legal Service providers are also embracing AI models and Legal AI broadly for the same reasons.  



If you know, you know

If the “Law and Order” opening monologue is not running through your mind as we speak, are you really a legal practitioner? “Dun Dun… In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.”

Legal Love Letters

And they say romance is dead! What is more romantic than [redactions], qualified non-comprehensive lists and generic salutations?


Oh, so appealing!

There is nothing quite as quintessentially lawyerly as wordsmithing and a dose of double entendre!


You have the right to remain lovely

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in court. You have the right to talk to a lawyer for advice before we ask you any questions. You have the right to have a lawyer with you during questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you before any questioning if you wish. If you decide to answer questions now without a lawyer present, you have the right to stop answering at any time.


Unchain my heart! 

You can never be too careful in matters of the heart, be sure to restrict the role and access to your romantic encryption keys! Or your feeling might just get scrambled!
