Want some background information on a lawyer or judge? A place to start is WestlawNext's Profiler. This can be found under Tools, Directories or just start typing Profiler in the search box.
Profiler provides biographical information about attorneys, judges,
experts, arbitrators and intellectual property professionals, as well as
links to documents that reflect their work history.
Appearing in court? Learn about the judge.
Have an interview? Investigate not only the firm but the person(s) you will meet during the interview.
You can also use Profiler to look for attorneys who practice in an area of law in a defined geographical location.
Caveat, profile information is not always up-to-date so this is not a one-stop tool.
