We’re practicing lawyers that help other lawyers learn to use technology in their day-to-day practice. We know which tech tools work, and which ones don’t. In other words, we experiment and suffer so you don’t have to. Our CLE programs give you practical information; we’re not big on theoretical solutions. Our focus is technology, but we’ll cover anything useful to practicing lawyers.
