Her blog, Zen & the Art of Legal Networking, is certainly worth checking out for anyone who is interested in the subjects of content marketing, legal marketing in general, [and] social media. If you're at all involved in this community, Lindsay Griffiths' publication is an absolute must-read because she covers things in such an interesting way."
Millman added, "She also reports back from a lot of conferences and she's able to pull really interesting stuff out of these conferences without it feeling redundant or repetitive like a lot of legal marketing advice can. She really draws from this wealth of knowledge that is unparalleled."
