Geoffrey Vance was quoted in the March 2009 issue of Chicago Lawyer regarding the use of online social networking sites. The multitude of social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Legal OnRamp has connected lawyers with colleagues, clients and friends. These networking sites have created an outlet for lawyers to expand their network dramatically. Mr. Vance uses social networking to gather facts about opponents in trials. Mr. Vance said, "I make it a practice to use as many sources as I can come up with to find information about the other side." He continued, "We used to run LexisNexis; we still do that. We always look at cases, and now we use the Internet – Google, and social networking sites."
