Who we are
Ernie Svenson is a New Orleans commercial litigator who transformed his practice by embracing technology. Once dependent on bulky paper files and the paralegals that helped manage them, he eventually figured out how to leverage the power of PDFs.
In 2006, Ernie renounced his partnership at high-overhead 50-lawyer firm to start a low-overhead, paperless solo practice. As a nationally recognized speaker, author, and blogger, he’s helped hundreds of other lawyers escape paper-pushing drudgery. His advice is always practical, sensible, and based on real-world experience.
Andrew Legrand started a virtual law firm right after graduating from law school in 2011. Since then, he’s served many business clients around the country, making use of technology to work smarter and do a better job. (for example, he used visual mindmap in a presentation before the New Orleans City Council, obviously to great effect).
Andrew has captured media attention from Forbes, Business Insider, and Mo.com, mentored young lawyers in the New Orleans Lawyer Meetup Group. He recently launched a new law firm called SperaLaw, which is a model of what a modern law firm should be.
Adriana Linares runs LawTech Partners, which teaches lawyers to get more from software they already own. She’s a consultant to the Florida Bar, and other state and local bar associations. She consults with law firms (and they sing her praises). Because she speaks fluent Spanish, she’s worked in Spain, Brazil and Venezuela.
Most of all, she’s an exceptional presenter, which is shocking for lawyers who trundle into seminar rooms with low expectations. Confident, patient, and piercingly aware, Adriana explains technology in ways that they understand, remember, and look forward to making use of.
What topics does she cover? Well, she lives, eats, breathes (and sometimes dreams) Microsoft Word, Outlook, Excel, Powerpoint, and Adobe Acrobat. And, to set the record straight: she has nothing against lawyers who use Wordperfect. But she really wishes they’d stop obsessing about “reveal codes.”
