On December 14-15, 2017, the MerusCase team will be attending the Louisiana Association for Justice CLE conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Hello All! My name is Arielle, and I am new to the MerusCase family. When I started last Monday, I was given the opportunity to go to the CELA (California Employment Lawyers Association) conference on Friday with other members of the MerusCase Marketing and Sales team. Having never gone to a trade show before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Well, now that I am (a week) older and (one trade show) wiser, here are some tips I have gathered for tradeshow newbies (and veterans) alike.
Your firm is growing, and it's time to hire some new employees! First, congratulations are in order! Now comes the hard part: finding an employee that is smart, capable, and hard-working.
