With the recent spate of shootings of lawyers and other legal professionals reported in the media -- particularly the shooting of Mark Hummels here in Phoenix -- I have become increasingly concerned with the safety of legal professionals. As violence becomes the method of choice in our society for resolving personal disputes, it seems that being in the business of resolving those disputes becomes a hazard. I will try to post ideas, resources, and guidance for those who work in the law to keep themselves safe from such harm. Please feel free to contribute your comments and insights. Thank you.
