2Lexting. Lexting is a new hobby where lawyers deliver substantive legal advice via text message. It’s an offshoot of lawyering but appeals to those who want to be a bit more digital with their advice. While it is generally frowned upon by traditional large firm partners, more progressive law firms are recognizing that it’s a healthy and safe alternative to sexting. Unfortunately, however, lexting often devolves into sexting after only a few snippets of advice, so be careful when trading texts about even most mundane matters, such as an ERISA plan administration dispute.
