My name is Ernie Svenson, and here's my story...
For 18 years practiced law in a big firm with fancy offices on the 40th floor of a downtown building.
(Think: high overhead📈)
My 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 completely blew my mind. 🤯
Not long after that, I said goodbye to the paralegals and goodbye to my big firm.
I started a solo practice powered by paperless automation. It was low-friction, low-overhead, and highly satisfying.
Other lawyers wanted me to help them do the same, so I did.
That led to opportunities to speak to national lawyer groups, write articles and appear on podcasts.
The ABA asked me to write a book about paperless law practice. And then, they gave me their Solo and Small Firm Trainer Award.
My greatest satisfaction came from seeing lawyers I helped experience the same joy I felt in my solo practice...
They had accomplished something they never thought was possible.
