Transform Your Small Firm Practice

In Three Days

May 7th, 8th & 9th, 2020 - 100% VIRTUAL Conference

Small Firm Bootcamp is a 3-day 100% VIRTUAL conference for solo and small firm attorneys who want:

—More streamlined workflows
—Less email overload
—More document automation
—Less paper and less disorganization
—More clients (good ones, not just anything that walks in the door)
—More profit & more steady cashflow
—Less overhead & fewer worries
—Less vulnerability to disasters & social disruption (e.g. flu pandemics)
—More ability to work remotely and collaborate virtually, and generally…
—A better blueprint for simplifing, automating and outsourcing most of the work in ANY kind of solo or small firm practice.

In case you’re wondering…

How will a Virtual Conference take place, exactly?

Short answer: a lot like a regular live conference.

There will be morning sessions each day with presentations released for viewing in an 8-hour window of time from 6 am CST to 2 pm CST. Then there will be afternoon sessions each day that are available from 2 pm CST to 10 pm CST.

There will be about two to three hours of content in the morning. And same for the afternoon. The sessions will be grouped by topic. For example, there might be sessions on system-building and practice management essentials on the first morning. And there might be marketing sessions in the afternoon on the second day.

We are still working out the agenda, and we’re adding content that we weren’t able to provide when we were planning this as a live event.

All of the sessions will be recorded in advance, and the presenters will be available during their time-slot (i.e. “morning” or “afternoon”) to answer questions related to their session. The Q&A will take place in an online chat space that registrants will be given access to immediately upon registration.

We are close to finalizing a new online portal where we will deliver the presentations. That will be where new registrations can be accepted as well.

In the meantime, if you are interested in participating just send Ernie Svenson an email at: and he’ll get you the latest details.

All of the speakers listed below will still be doing presentations. So if you scroll through the rest of this webpage you’ll get a pretty good sense of what the Virtual Bootcamp will provide in terms of content. We will not be able to supply CLE credit, however.

Nor will be be able to offer breakfast or lunch. But you probably would have guessed that.


When you participate you'll discover:

  • How to create systems for your practice so that you never have to explain to your staff “how it’s supposed to be done.” Instead, it just gets done and done right every time.
  • How to automate the process of creating your most important documents. Do it up to 500% faster, with virtually ZERO errors.
  • How to find any important document (or a crucial bit of information) in an instant, from anywhere, anytime—even while you’re on a plane flying at 30,000 feet.
  • How to keep your data secure from 95% of the hacking attempts that take down most law firms.
  • How to automatically attract a predictable stream of great clients, who trust you before they even speak to you in person.
  • The little-known secret that lets you recruit elite staff members: secretaries, paralegals, associates.
  • What you need to know before you commit to buying “practice management software,” (which most tech consultants won’t tell you).
  • Which document management systems are optimal for solo & small firm lawyers.
  • How to finally tame your email inbox so that it’s completely empty at the end of every day.
  • How to find top-notch, trustworthy tech consultants (and how to avoid the many clueless and opportunistic ones)
  • How to leverage the power of VAs (i.e. “rent” expert assistance in the most convenient and affordable way possible).
  • How to get work done easily from remote locations (home, coffee shops, vacation spots or anywhere with Internet access)
  • PLUS, other powerful ways of simplifying and streamlining your law practice so you can get more done more easily, with less effort and less stress.

Megan Hargroder

Portland, OR

Megan founded Conversations Digital in 2010 to pursue her passion: helping small businesses create social media strategies that work, empowering them to build an online buzz around their brands.

Megan began working in Social Media before Facebook even became “a thing.” At first, she focused on social media marketing for small businesses (that’s when she and Ernie first crossed paths).

She’s also an avid yogi and loves a good French 75.

Patrick was a professional magician for 18 years before he decided to enter law school. He started practicing law in 2013, focusing on family law in Knoxville, Tennessee. He also does some immigration work.

Patrick quickly built a magical law practice by leveraging technology in a sensible, systematic way.

Mike Whelan - small firm boot camp

Mike Whelan

Kansas City, MO

Mike practiced family law with an eye towards creating massive efficiency in our lumbering legal system. Needless to say, he quickly became frustrated and somewhat disillusioned.

He melded his frustration with some deep insights, and wrote a provocative book called Lawyer Forward, which you can learn more about by visiting his website:

His goal, through his speaking and writing is to replace the broken model we were taught in law school and at bar events with something much better.

Ernie Svenson

New Orleans, LA

Ernie worked in a large New Orleans firm for 18 years doing commercial litigation. Eventually the ridiculous overhead, high billable hour quotas, and mindless bureaucracy left him burned out and disillusioned. So he started a super efficient, highly profitable, low-overhead solo practice.

For the past decade Ernie has been dedicated to teaching other solo and small firm lawyers how to harness the incredible power of systems and technology. Specifically, systems and technologies that help you better market and manage your practice so you can start working less, earning more, and taking more time off.

Donna Svenson

New Orleans, LA

Donna Svenson is the event coordinator, communications liaison, and financial director for LawFIrm Autopilot.

Donna has been helping Ernie put on live events for several years. Somewhere along the way she and Ernie realized they were a perfect romantic match so they got married and now spend every precious moment together working, playing, having fun with friends, enjoying New Orleans cuisine, and relaxing at Jazz Fest in April/May.

Donna is an exceptionally good cook (gumbo anyone?). And she raised three boys, all of whom played competitive soccer. She’s also the proud grandmother of a feisty girl named Lilliah, and a tough little boy named Arvo, both of whom refer to her as “Honey.” Which is a reminder that Donna is, above all, the sweetest person anyone could ever know.

Attendees relish these Bootcamps

Every time we do a new Bootcamp it’s vastly better than the last one (which is why we have so many nice testimonials).

But, for this next Bootcamp, we’re going to take it to an exponentially higher level—and do at least two things that have never been done before.

First, we’re going to enable attendees to be present at the live event, or to be present via live streaming (more about this later). And second, we’re providing IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE to as soon as you register for the conference.

Immediate Assistance!

Every other legal conference waits until you arrive to start teaching, but at this conference…

You’ll start receiving help IMMEDIATELY after you register.

How will this happen?

Well, you’ll get immediate access to the LawFirm Autopilot course. This is a course that has helped hundreds of lawyers who were not able to attend the prior Bootcamps.

But imagine how much more helpful it will be to get access to BOTH the Autopilot course AND the Bootcamp.

You’ve learned a bit about the Bootcamp. So, what about the Autopilot course?


Here's what folks who've taken it say...

Now, please note: the Autopilot course normally sells for $495.

But you will get access to it immediately. At no extra charge, as a free bonus that’s part of the Bootcamp registration.

There are over 50+  lessons, templates, short guides & checklists in an online area that you will get IMMEDIATE access to as soon as you register.

Most people ask: how long will it take to work through all the materials. And the short, unsurprising answer is: it depends.

A lot of people get through the course in 4 weeks or less. But some folks get interrupted by a busy patch at work and take a little longer.

But folks who come to the Bootcamp will learn everything in RECORD TIME. Because of the pre-event webinars, and the intense 2-day focus you’ll have while participating in the Bootcamp (whether you choose to do so in person, or remotely via the live streaming option).

After the Bootcamp is over you’ll have LIFETIME ACCESS to the Autopilot course materials, including the recordings of the presentations that happen during the Bootcamp.

And, as Ernie creates new lessons for the Autopilot course (which he does from time to time) those lessons will be added to your course materials at no extra charge.


You will also be invited to attend our weekly webinars (already underway) where our speakers will help you make key changes now so your practice begins improving before you even show up in May.

The value of these webinars is a couple of hundred dollars at least. We’ve already started doing them, and you’ll get access to the recordings of the ones you missed.

There will be other bonuses, but those will come as surprises after you register. So let’s talk about what you pay to register for the Bootcamp.

Here’s the question you want to ask: What’s the…

What's the value of this program?

Well, BEFORE you even arrive at the Bootcamp next May, you’re guaranteed to receive over $1,000 of value. And that’s not including the value of other bonuses that we’ll be revealing after you register.


Bottom line: the overall monetary value of the Bootcamp will be over $5,000. (Actually it’s probably over $10,000 when you consider that you’ll have direct access to top-notch consultants who charge thousands of dollars per day)

But the value of it in terms of helping you transform your practice will be even higher.

So, now (having talked about a lot of good things) it’s time to share a

Brutal Truth

(and this is something you DEFINITELY will not hear other conference organizers say…)

Our Bootcamp conference is NOT for everyone. Yep, it’s not for everyone and we know this. So we want you to know it too.

Read on to make sure you’re a good fit before you decide to register.

The Bootcamp is NOT for you if...

  • you’re impatient, or stubbornly change-resistant.
  • you’re seeking get-rich-quick tactics
  • you are overly obsessed with new-fangled technology
  • you’re not willing to be systematic in building your practice

If that’s you, then you won’t benefit from the Autopilot course or the Bootcamp.

Also, it’s not for you if you ONLY attend conferences to get CLE credit.

If you value CLE credit above improving your practice, then don’t bother reading any further. We’re not for you.

(But just so you know: we’re going to provide 12 hours of CLE credit from these states: Louisiana, Florida, and Texas)

The Bootcamp IS for you if...

  • you’re open to learning powerful new ways of streamlining and automating your practice
  • you’re results-driven and action-oriented
  • you’re willing to use tasteful marketing strategies to attract better clients (instead of cheesy tactics that are expensive and increasingly ineffective)
  • you’re willing to invest time, energy and money to build an exceptional practice

Look here’s the deal with my unique approach.

I’m realistic about what it takes to help lawyers get big results. First and foremost, attendees to have the right mindset.

You have to be willing to invest time, money and energy to get big results. Our job is to help you invest wisely so you get those big results as fast as possible.

That’s why we offer pre-event guidance via webinars (and other ways)…

…By the way, we’ll even offer guidance AFTER the event as well.

Because that —realistically— is what it takes to make sure the valuable advice we give you takes root in your day-to-day practice.

We’re super-committed to helping the right kind of lawyers. So if you’re the right kind, then we know you’ll make big changes that will improve your practice in mind-blowing ways (Just like it did for Patrick).

And, as I mentioned above, the guidance will start as soon as you register.

So, if you’re ready to make an important investment to help you grow your practice in the most sensible, strategic way…

Here is a detailed agenda for the Bootcamp.

And here are some details about the LawFirm Autopilot course curriculum (remember: you’ll get immediate access to this course when you register for the Bootcamp).

Finally, if you have any questions about the Bootcamp, email Ernie Svenson at and he’ll get back to you quickly.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, if you attend the conference in person your conference pass includes a light breakfast and lunch each day of the conference. There will also be numerous session breaks to grab snacks and beverages. The conference also features all-day coffee and tea, because we know that everyone needs an extra boost from time to time.

Plus a Special Cocktail Reception!!

We’ll also host a free cocktail reception after the first day (Thursday). This will be a very special event that you won’t want to miss. Why, well because…

Immediately after the first day presentations there will be a New Orleans Second Line Parade leaving from the Bootcamp location to a nearby venue for a three hour reception that will give you even more opportunity to engage with the speakers and your fellow attendees.

And, by the way,  if you want to bring your spouse (or anyone you’re traveling with) as a guest, please do. No charge.


Once you purchase your ticket, you’ll receive an email with a private registration link to get your discounted room rate ($129/night) at the hotel where we’re having the Bootcamp: the Hampton Inn & Suites New Orleans Convention Center. Please note: the discounted room rates will expire soon, so book yours immediately while the rates and rooms are available!

Yes, you can download a PDF of the detailed agenda by clicking on this link (the agenda may be updated slightly as we get closer to the event).

We’re expecting 100 attendees to attend in person, and most of them will be coming from out of town.

We don’t know how many will be attending via the live streaming option, but we will make it so that they can participate in a discussion forum that all attendees and all speakers will be given access to.

And regardless of how people attend the conference, you can be sure of one important thing: all of them will be solo or small firm attorneys just like you, and interested in meeting the same challenges you face and leveraging the same opportunities.

Yes, regardless of whether you attend live or virtually, you’ll have many opportunities to engage with all of the speakers (including Ernie) and with your fellow attendees.

Much of this happen through a virtual discussion forum, which is hosted by Slack. And we already have started discussing things in our Slack forum, mostly related to the topics covered in our weekly pre-Bootcamp webinars.

We’ve done eight webinars as of March 14th, and all of those sessions were recorded and are available to you as soon as you register.

If you realize you can’t attend the live event for any reason, you’ll have the option to attend virtually (at no additional cost) via the live stream. And you’ll have access to all of the bonuses and resources that you’d get access to by attending live (other than the experience of meeting with people in person).

If you are planning to attend live and decide you can’t come and do not want the virtual option, we’ll give you all of your money back. But you will lose access to all of the resources provided upon registration and those that are added at any time after.

If you register to attend with the intention of only attending virtually and can’t participate live during the two days of the Bootcamp you’ll be able to watch the recordings that will be uploaded after the Bootcamp.

But if you want to cancel, as long as you do it before the Bootcamp starts we’ll give you all your money back, no questions asked. (Again, if we give you a full refund you will lose access to all resources that were provided up to the time you cancelled).

Absolutely! Reach out to Donna Svenson at and we’ll be happy to change the attendee information to give access to whomever you want to give your ticket to.

It’s a GREAT idea to bring your team! The value of the event will increase exponentially with the shared experience! Contact Donna Svenson ( about special rates for your team members.

For out-of-town attendees we recommend arriving in New Orleans on Wednesday, May 5th and planning to depart Saturday, May 8th to take advantage of all the conference events and activities. Plus, if you’ve never been to New Orleans, why not stay through until Sunday? (The discounted room rates will probably be available through the weekend if you sign up soon enough)

You’ll be able to follow discussions about the conference or comment yourself by using these hashtag: #LawfirmAutopilot #LFABootcamp2020

We’ll also have a special private online discussion area just for attendees and speakers that we’ll be telling you about a few weeks before the conference starts.

As we keep telling you, this is going to be an exceptional conference in many ways. People who don’t come will kick themselves when they find out what they missed.

And this conference WILL sell out way before it starts (probably before January) so if you are interested we recommend you sign up right away.
