Tweetables and Quotes:
“You hear it no matter what they want to say, is they [lawyers] want to move backwards. They want to go back to the way things were, and really that doesn’t help [a firm’s growth]. Most people don’t want to go back.” @consultwebs
“I’m really concerned that a lot of lawyers and firms are going to wanna go back and just do things the old way. But there have been improvement, we [lawyers] don’t have to go to court for everything. There are certain things that are better in person but routine procedural things and a lot of those didn’t need to be and I hope that judges don’t wanna regress as well.” @consultwebs
““Ethically, you need to be digitized. You know people hear paperless and get nervous but it’s a digitized office – everything’s scanned.” @consultwebs
“The challenge behind [opting for tech] is always the culture. But when they get the ‘aha’ moment and go, ‘wow, this is how it helps me’ and when they see that and it could be something in a mundane process where you prevent deadlines from being missed. That makes an enormous difference.” @consultwebs
“If you can automate a process and you save 10 seconds and you do that process 6X a day you are saving 250 minutes a year in time just on that process so you’re saving 4 hours just because you’ve made it a little more efficient.” @consultwebs
“Lawyers need to be acutely aware of cybersecurity issues because they are large targets, even if you’re a small firm because you have information as a lawyer that people want. You have people’s names, dates of birth, social security numbers, medical records, that type of information.” @consultwebs
“[Adopting new technology] can be scary but at the same point, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It means you have to learn something new. You don’t wanna go to a doctor who won’t do MRIs because they weren’t around when the doctor was in med school. Lawyers aren’t really any different in that sense.” @consultwebs
