Hey there, I’m Ernie Svenson, the founder of this website.

About twenty years ago, I created a 100% paperless, highly automated law practice. One that was both financially rewarding and immensely satisfying.


My radical transformation started in 2002, with this discovery…

Using nothing more than a laptop and a smartphone I could handle complex litigation cases completely by myself, and do so at a much lower cost.

Clients appreciated the lower bills. And they noticed that technology made me more effective than lawyers in big firms.

So getting new clients was easy. And it cost virtually nothing because my main marketing expense was a website that cost less than $100 per year.

I kept my entire overhead ridiculously low. Which enabled me to earn a good living without working crazy hours.


Some lawyers scoffed at my non-traditional approach to practicing law (mostly ones in big firms).

Other lawyers asked me to help them improve their practices (mostly solos and small firm lawyers). I really enjoyed doing this and, eventually, it became my full-time mission.

The ABA even gave me their 2018 Solo and Small Firm Trainer Award for my work.

But my greatest joy came from seeing lawyers achieve a level of happiness they never thought possible.
