I've lived in New Orleans almost my whole life. I was born here. I went to college and law school here. Got married here, and raised three kids here.
I will surely die here. And when I do it will be with a broad smile on my face because this is the best city in the world to live in.
In this free "course," I've compiled my best tips for visiting the city, whether it's your first time or your thirteenth time.
Take these recommendations more as a brainstorming worksheet than a "guide" to slavishly follow. New Orleans is all about improvising (which is why jazz music was born here and continues to flourish). So improvise and enjoy the sights, sounds, and the serendipity.
Ernie Svenson is a New Orleans lawyer who learned to create a simpler, more streamlined, and more enjoyable way of practicing law. After he did this, fellow lawyers wanted to know how they could do this too, so he showed them.
For over a decade, he's helped hundreds of solo and small firm lawyers—even winning awards for his work. He helps them through his weblog, podcast, speaking, books, online programs, workshops, and conferences.
