Strategic Leverage

Technology can help you remove efficiency bottlenecks in your law practice if it’s used sensibly and strategically.

Begin by leveraging as many tech-enabled “force-multipliers” as possible, which means you should…

1. Streamline

Develop better systems to get all your work done quickly, reliably, and with much lower overhead.

2. Automate

Turn your practice into a “digital factory” so it runs more by itself—without any effort on your part.

3. Outsource

Do only the work you love to do! Get others (think: virtual assistants) to handle everything else.

Ernie's Message...

When you use technology effectively you can begin to transform your practice in truly amazing ways.

That’s how I was able to escape the misery of BigLaw (where I was overworked and under-appreciated) and start a happier solo practice.

I kept doing complex commercial litigation (i.e. paper-intensive cases), but without the paper —because I figured out how to digitize, simplify, and streamline everything. I also discovered the joys of working as much as I wanted, when I wanted, wherever I wanted.

Sometimes I had to pinch myself to make sure it was all real.

Fellow lawyers in small firms wanted to know how they could improve their practices, so I showed them. This continued, and at this point, has been going on for well over a decade.

In that time I’ve helped hundreds of lawyers all over the country (and even won an ABA award, which was kind of surprising). The biggest reward, though, comes from helping people achieve a kind of happiness they never thought possible.

As you can tell from what those lawyers say about their experiences with me…

  • “What I found most appealing was Ernie’s genuine and sincere desire to help fellow lawyers leverage technology to achieve their goals.” —Sierra Anne Pino
  • My biggest sensei in starting my solo law practice was Ernie Svenson.” —David Sparks
  • “Really has opened up new windows on running a law practice more effectively and efficiently”—Jim Monast
  • “I received so much help by not having to find answers on my own.”—Carlee Gonzales
  • “I’m an experienced lawyer and yet it made me much more confident about starting my own solo practice.”—Robert Nunn
  • “I’m a 65-year-old dinosaur attorney of 38 years, enjoying your online course and finding it helpful.” —Michael R. Jarman
  • “Ernie helped me steer clear of distracting shiny objects and stay calmly focused on the essentials for success in the business of my law firm.”—Page Kistler
  • I feel reinvigorated about my practice.” —Jimmy Go
  • “It is clear that you love helping people”—Catherine Fairchild

I really do enjoy helping people, especially lawyers who struggle to tap the full power of modern technology.

If you feel like you’re not leveraging technology enough in your practice, I have a bunch of helpful resources that you can check out right now (e.g. blog articles and podcast episodes).

An Unfortunate Truth...

For many lawyers, technology has been both a blessing and a curse. And it’s easy to understand why.

Because, while computers can help us do work faster and more reliably, they’re also inherently complicated to operate.

Yes, modern lawyers need to learn to optimize their use of technology as much as possible.

But, the good news is that you don’t need to figure out how to do this all by yourself.
You can get help learning to leverage technology —using proven strategies that worked for hundreds of other solo and small firm lawyers.
