If you’re a small firm lawyer, you must be ruthless about using limited resources (e.g. your time). Digital technology can help you leverage those limited resources in mind-boggling ways.
At least, in theory.
Unfortunately, technology is often more bewildering and frustrating than helpful. For most lawyers, anyway.
So what’s the solution? How can you turn things around?
The key is to “work smarter” with technology. You need to be strategic and realistic (as opposed to haphazard and naïve).
Focus ruthlessly on the high-value levers supplied by modern technology, which is how you start to…
When you leverage technology effectively to improve your workflows, you’ll be able to:
- Dramatically lower your overhead
- Create documents up to 300% faster
- Find & hire low-cost virtual assistants
- Blitz through emails with preset responses
- Be able to find any document in a flash
- Have confidence your data is fully secure
- Be able to work from anywhere
- Gain more freedom & have more time off
Learning to leverage technology takes time and ongoing commitment.
If you demand rapid transformation, you’re destined for frustration and disappointment.
But if you’re sensible and patient, then you’ll succeed. I know, because that’s how I used tech to transform my solo practice.
And that’s how the lawyers I’ve been able to help have done it.
How to start
First, commit to taking action to improve your practice. Don’t be passive. And don’t fall prey to shiny object distractions.
If you want to create big changes in your practice, zero in on the things that matter most. Specifically…
Focus On These 3 Keys
This is how your practice starts to run more by itself—i.e. with minimal effort or oversight on your part.
Delegate low-level tasks to others (outsource if possible) so you can focus more on high-value work.
Document your workflows (and refine them over time) so all your work gets done well, reliably, always.

A Stubborn Truth...
The old ways of doing things don’t work as well as they used to. That should be obvious by now.
There are new ways of running a law practice (or any modern business) that are much better.
If you want to improve your practice, but have questions you’d like to ask me in person, that’s another option.
