Are you planning on going to the ABA Techshow in Chicago?
It’s supposedly the premier conference for attorneys who want to learn more about using technology.
I used to speak at the conference every year, and I met a lot of great folks in the process.
But last year I was struck by what an overwhelming experience it is for most solo and small firm lawyers.
My experience (after working with hundreds of such lawyers) is that folks like you just want to know the simplest, most effective things they can do to improve their practices.
That makes sense, right? Simple and effective.
But simple is not part of the equation at Techshow. And if you want the opposite of simple…
Go visit the vendor area of TechShow.
Stroll through the gargantuan space with eternally smiling salespeople who implore you to “at least put your business card into the fishbowl.”
The savvy ones might hand you a puppy to hold.
That way they can give you a hard pitch that you can’t easily walk away from…
p class=”p1″>In those cavernous halls I’ve talked to countless company founders —folks who paid ungodly sums to exhibit at TechShow.
These are the people who are overwhelming you with technology options.
So let me explain why there’s an increased flood of new (and mostly useless) legal technology options.
Non-lawyer techies labor under a severe misapprehension. They’re absolutely and totally 100% certain that all lawyers are fabulously wealthy.
Even the solo and small firm lawyers. Supposedly they’re all living in golden palaces.
That’s what the non-lawyer techies believe. And naturally they want to tap into that wealth.
And the key to their fortune (they also believe) is new legal-specific software.
Usually it has a practice management component.
Sure, they know lawyers already have 213 choices in the practice management space.
But they’re completely undaunted.
I call these people “waggy-tailed dreamers.”
Yes, they’re nice. And they’re passionate. And god knows we’re all rooting for them. But…
Do not chase their techno-gizmo shiny objects.
Stay in your lane, stick to the plan, and keep steadily driving towards your big goal.
Oh, and don’t let anyone hand you a puppy.
The Bottom Line…
Too many solo and small firm lawyers are overworked, underpaid, and under appreciated. So I help them create practices that are easier to manage, more profitable, and much more fulfilling.

Why join the C0-Pilot program?
Lawyers in my Co-Pilot membership program get personal guidance from me to help them stay on track as they grow their practices, which is something that they greatly appreciate. You wouldn’t know that obviously, because you don’t know me very well yet.
The better you get to know me, the more you’ll realize how much I believe in you (because I know you’re probably a lot like this lawyer).
Specifically, I believe you’re capable of achieving more and achieving it sooner than you probably think.
The key to this is focusing on the right things in your practice (i.e. the 20% that gives you 80% of the big results you’re looking for).
When you join the Co-Pilot program I’ll show you the simplest, most effective things you can do to create your ideal practice.
