Innovative lawyers. Two words that seem like an unlikely pair. At least, that's how it used to be.

Small firms lawyers are better able to respond to market changes, advances in technology and the demands of legal consumers. These lawyers are more willing to learn about and take advantage of emerging technologies or newfound practice management theories and are changing the ways in which legal services are delivered to consumers.
