I created a paperless litigation practice (with automated workflows) and then started helping other lawyers do this too.
Solo and small firm attorneys often find themselves overwhelmed with routine tasks that take up hours of their time, such as…
…dealing with emails, sending out bills, scheduling meetings, drafting documents, and answering phone calls.
Tasks like these seem mundane, but many are necessary. And, in many cases, if you don’t do the work, it won’t get done.
It probably feels like your firm is a hamster wheel with no one turning it but you.
But the good news is there are concrete steps you can take to make things easier.
For example, you can automate much of the tedious admin work and recapture hours of valuable time. And you can use smart templates to generate key documents faster and more reliably.
Routine emails can be dispensed by using “canned replies” that make your responses appear more thoughtful —even though it takes only seconds to blast them out.
And outsourcing gets your work done without you even lifting a finger.
Yes, using technology is the key to getting more work done faster, and better.
But how do you use technology more effectively? Well, that’s where I can help.
For over a decade I’ve helped hundreds of lawyers learn to transform their practices by using technology better.
I even won an ABA award for my work, which was surprising and appreciated, BUT…
The biggest reward comes from seeing those lawyers attain a kind of happiness they never thought was possible.
Here’s what they say…
- “My biggest sensei in starting my solo law practice was Ernie Svenson.” —David Sparks
- “Really has opened up new windows on running a law practice more effectively and efficiently”—Jim Monast
- “I received so much help by not having to find answers on my own.”—Carlee Gonzales
- “I’m an experienced lawyer and yet Ernie made me much more confident about starting my own solo practice.”—Robert Nunn
- “I feel reinvigorated about my practice.” —Jimmy Go
- “It is clear that you love helping people”—Catherine Fairchild
I really do enjoy helping people, especially lawyers who struggle with technology.
Making any kind of improvement is hard, and so I especially admire people committed to making a big change.
And technology can definitely help you make some really big changes in your practice.
But, having helped lots of different kinds of lawyers for many years, I have a short cautionary message…
There are so many tech options now. And they all promise they’ll make your life easier.
Sure, some of the software is amazing, but it takes a lot of time to find the best options.
And then it takes time to learn to use the software (and to keep it updated).
Unfortunately, learning to leverage technology properly requires an investment of time, energy, and money.
But, the good news is that you don’t need to figure this all out by yourself.
In fact, that’s why I created the…
