ImageTom Goldstein, a partner with the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer Feld LLP, has gained a reputation as one of the leading Supreme Court litigators, helped in part by SCOTUSBLOG, short for Supreme Court of the United States Blog. He and his wife, Amy Howe, founded the blog more than five years ago when they were running a small, Washington DC-based firm.

Today SCOTUSBLOG, which is now sponsored by Akin Gump and managed by Howe and her small firm, attracts a readership of up to 100,000 on days when the Supreme Court makes big news. The blog includes commentary, analysis, links to court filings and related information on the nation's top court.

"The blog has always had a singular focus," says Goldstein. Recalling his days at his former firm, he says: "It was an important part of our credibility; it was something we could point to in our effort to get hired."
