I'm Going to Google You

Spellcheck puts a red squiggly line under the word "Googling." Similarly, I confess that, until recently, I failed to accept the correctness of Googling my candidates. Of course I've always researched the professional qualifications of any attorney we recommend to a client. But I'd rather not know how you spend your limited amount of personal time. I feel like it's none of my business.

Well, I'm making it my business now. My change of heart came when one of our clients unearthed some online information about a candidate we had presented for consideration. To protect confidentiality (yes, I get the irony), I'm not going to get into details here. Let's just say that "goofy" would be a kind word to describe what our candidate was doing with her weekends.
