For lawyers in private practice, corporate counsel, businesses, organizations, and government, we have a powerful subscriber edition built around our fully explorable law practice problem solving environment and intellectual capital system, Laugment.TM
It's an advanced lawyer augmentation system.
Laugment provides advanced, easy-to-use law practice thinking architecture via your desktop or handheld device browser.
As of November 2018, Laugment knew 336,000 words and phrases. Because they are interconnected by 1,418,000 smart relationships, Laugment functions as an intellectual network extending your own mind. It also serves as a dynamic semantically-powered gateway to the best of the larger legal Web. If you don't have scores of dedicated knowledge management lawyers working on your behalf -- or, frankly, even if you do -- you need Laugment.
As a lawyer, you need an advanced lawyer-built law practice knowledge assistant / electronic mentor in myriad ways in your daily practice. But until Laugment came on the scene, the Legal Web had no semantic "brain" to make it more useful to practicing lawyers. The empty search box can't do what Laugment can do - make your most valuable asset -- your legal mind -- sharper, quicker, and more creative than ever. How? By functioning as an "intellectual prosthesis" magnifying your law practice mind through years of law practice modeling and legal transactive memory effects. Here's what others have said.
If you're a client, if you hire outside counsel, let's talk about how we can mutually support your law firms' step up to 21st century-style law practice.
Disclaimer: Laugment is not intended to substitute for a lawyer but rather to magnify the powers of smart people and improve the lawyering process.

GOVERNOR APPOINTS HALSEY TO TENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of Stephen Halsey to a Tenth Judicial District trial court bench vacancy that occurred with the retirement of the Honorable Kenneth Maas on April 30, 2002. The Supreme Court transferred the chambers of this judgeship to the city of Buffalo in Wright County.
Halsey is an attorney in the law firm of Moore, Halsey and Eskola in Fridley, a position he has held since 1984. He was an attorney with the law firm of Peterson and Kalina in Columbia Heights from 1979 to 1984 and Babcock, Locher, Neilson and Mannella in Anoka from 1978 to 1979. Halsey earned his juris doctorate degree from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul in 1978 and his bachelor of arts degree from St. Cloud State University in 1973.
"Steve is a well-balanced person," Governor Ventura said. "He has tried a wide range of cases, has been active in legal associations and in the community. I know this background will help him to be a good judge."
Halsey is past president of the Anoka County Bar Association, served on the Minnesota Supreme Court Legal Services Advisory Committee and is currently serving on a joint committee of the Anoka Rotary Club, Judicare and the Anoka County Bar Association to provide budgeting and legal advice to immigrants in Anoka County. Halsey was mayor of Anoka from 1987 to 1990 and a member of the Anoka city council from 1979 to 1987. He was president of the Anoka Rotary Club, president of the congregation of Zion Lutheran Church in Anoka and chairperson of Ballet Arts Minnesota in Minneapolis.
Halsey, 50, was born in St. Paul and resides in Anoka with his wife, Patricia. They have two daughters, Brooke, 24, and Rachel, 21.
