Thanks to Carolyn
As you may know, the AttorneyFee team believes in the lean startup methodology of iterative development. So when we launched two weeks ago at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, our product was far from perfect. In the view of Richard Granat, it had enough functionality that it deserved to be released into the market. But even Granat, who thus far has been one of our most sanguine supporters, felt that there was much work to be done, many features that need to be added, and many kinks that needed to be smoothed out.
We could not possibly agree with him any more, and that is why we feel indebted to all of the people who have been so generous with their time in giving us detailed feedback and suggestions. Chief among them is Carolyn Elefant.
Although Carolyn has been very critical of our site, she has also taken more time than anyone else to help us improve. She has highlighted potential ethical pitfalls to avoid, made a dozen or so invaluable suggestions about the structure of the site, and provided fantastic advice to make our service more substantive. She has also demonstrated tremendous patience. Not many people running a full service law firm would take time out of their day to write and reply to a perfect stranger, and even fewer would give it as much thought and attention as she has.
There is no doubt in our minds that Carolyn's time and attention will enhance the value that AttorneyFee can provide in the lives of the thousands of people that are already using the site. For this, we are eternally grateful to Carolyn Elefant. And as a sign of our gratitude, we're bringing out the Happy Penguine!
