The article, published July 22, 2009, is an in-depth interview that explores Mr. Weinstine’s thoughts on civility, responsibility, and the changes that have occurred throughout his career. “He [Mr. Weinstine] remembers having a secretary photo-reduce a stack of documents again and again until they were small enough to fit in his suitcase. ‘Now I can store 20 depositions on a laptop and pull them up on an airplane and it’s feather-light’” (Glover).
Mr. Weinstine also discusses his opinions on training the next generation, technology, and firm culture. “[…]you don’t find lawyers screaming at their secretaries at Winthrop & Weinstine. The firm is like a big family. ‘We still have our first employee. She was 19 years old, from Sumner, Iowa. She’s been here for 30 years’” (Glover).
