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.

Call us or ask us to call you.

Disclaimer: Laugment is not intended to substitute for a lawyer but rather to magnify the powers of smart people and improve the lawyering process.

(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of John McBride to a Tenth Judicial District trial court bench vacancy in Chisago County that occurred with the retirement of the Honorable James Clifford on December 31, 2002.  Thirty-six people applied for this vacancy. 

McBride is a senior attorney with the law firm of Lommen, Nelson, Cole and Stageberg in Minneapolis.  He has been an attorney with the firm since 1991.  McBride was a senior shareholder with the law firm of Felhaber, Larson, Fenlon and Vogt in St. Paul from 1989 to 1991, an attorney and president of the law firm of Donlin, McBride and Goetteman in St. Paul from 1982 to 1989, a staff attorney for The St. Paul Companies in Bloomington from 1980 to 1982 and an associate attorney for the law firm of Geimer and Rice in St. Louis Park from 1978 to 1980.  McBride earned his juris doctorate degree from Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul in 1977 and his bachelor of science degree from the University of Missouri in 1975.

"John has spent the bulk of his career representing doctors and medical personnel in medical malpractice suits, which are very complex cases," Governor Ventura said.  He has the experience and the intellect to handle any case that comes before him as a judge."
