TGIF for Lawyers In Love
According to Emma Schwartz writing for Legal Times on August 2, 2006, forty-something single mother and attorney Elena Albamonte created LawyersInLove.com, a dating site strictly devoted to lawyers, after she found herself on a date with a fellow attorney and realized how much they had in common.

Since its launch in February 2005, LawyersinLove.com has registered 1,500 users. Like most online dating sites, it allows members to post profiles, pictures and even a few lawyer jokes.
