Practice Management 101

Leverage Technology Better

Learn to Work Smarter

If you're in a solo or small firm practice, you have limited resources that must be managed wisely.

In other words, you have to do much more with much less. That means leveraging technology as much as possible.

The first step is a paperless practice. Then you can take advantage of automation and outsourcing.

Doing this will enable you to:

  • Dramatically lower your overhead (and keep much more of what you earn)

  • Create documents up to 300% faster (with fewer mistakes or problems)

  • Blitz through emails using canned responses created with text automation macros

  • Find any document you need in 15 seconds or less (even if all you have is a smartphone)

  • Work from anywhere (e.g. a plane flying at 30,000 feet, or a cruise ship in the Caribbean)

  • Keep your valuable data secure from cyber-criminals (step #1: use a password manager)

  • Find and hire low-cost, highly skilled virtual assistants (it's easier than you imagine)

  • Take more time away from work to relax and have fun (think: long vacations)

How do I know?

Briefly, here's my background...

I'm Ernie Svenson, a New Orleans lawyer who spent 18 years working in a big firm with fancy offices on the 40th floor of a tall building.

The firm handled complex business cases with well-paid paralegals organizing many boxes of documents.

One day, I discovered that I could scan paper into a computer. That meant I could put the equivalent of hundreds of boxes of paper into my 2-pound laptop.

This blew my mind. And not long after that...I said goodbye to the paralegals and goodbye to my big firm. 

I then started a solo practice to harness the power of paperless automation. It was low-friction, low-overhead, and immensely satisfying.

#1 Mission

Other lawyers wanted me to help them do the same, so I did. And that led to other opportunities. For example...

I was invited to speak at conferences like the ABA Tech Show in Chicago. The ABA then asked me to author some books on technology. And then, they gave me a special award.

Shortly after that, I gave up practicing law to focus full-time on helping lawyers who wanted to revamp their practices. 

So how about you?
