Strategic Leverage

When you use technology effectively you can transform your practice in amazing ways.

That’s how I was able to transition away from BigLaw (where I was overworked and under-appreciated) and start a happier solo practice.

I kept doing complex commercial litigation (i.e. paper-intensive) cases, but without the paper —because I figured out how to digitize, automate, and streamline everything.

As a result, I was able to work less and feel less stressed. I worked when I wanted and wherever I wanted. And so I became much happier with my practice.

Sometimes I had to pinch myself to make sure it was all real.

Helping Others

Fellow lawyers in small firms were eager to know how they could use technology to improve their practices, so I showed them.

Over the past decade I’ve helped hundreds of lawyers all over the country (and even won an ABA award, which was kind of surprising).

The biggest reward, though, comes from helping people achieve a kind of happiness they never thought possible.

As these lawyers confirm…

  • “My practice has grown exponentially…” —Stephanie Quigley
  • “My biggest sensei in starting my solo law practice was Ernie Svenson.” —David Sparks
  • “I learned how to develop systems to make my practice more efficient and profitable.” —Christine Senne
  • “You’re showing lawyers how to transform their small firm practices in a way I don’t see anyone else being able to do.” –Todd Smith
  • “I received so much help in planning my solo firm and saved so much time not having to find answers on my own.”—Carlee Gonzales
  • “I’m a 65-year-old dinosaur attorney of 38 years, enjoying your online course and finding it helpful.” —Michael R. Jarman
  • “It’s clear that you love helping people”—Catherine Fairchild

It’s true…

I really do enjoy helping people, especially lawyers who want to make significant improvements in their practices.

And, having helped many lawyers for many years…

I’m starkly aware of the common challenges of using technology.

 Brutal Truth

For many lawyers, the promise of technology has been overblown.

The simple fact is we weren’t prepared to deal with all this techno-wizardry.

Computers are now indispensable, but they’re also inherently complicated to operate.

And yet, using computers effectively is the key to…

Working Smarter

Setting up paperless workflows will enable you get work done faster and with less friction.

Using automation can dramatically lower your overhead. Being able to collaborate virtually with others gives you freedom and flexibility.

And using outsourcing can give you mind-boggling leverage.

In other words, you should use technology as much as possible if you want to transform your practice.

Of course, I realize that learning new tech skills takes time and can often feel awkward.

But, the good news is that you don’t need to learn all by yourself.

And that’s why I created my…
