Withdrawing from PointOneLaw Because of my VP Position With MyCase

Yesterday I told you about my new position as Vice President of Business Development and Community Relations for MyCase, a company that offers a cloud-based law practice management platform.

Unfortunately, because of my new position, I am going to have to withdraw as a speaker from LexThink1. This is because only one person from any given company can speak at LexThink1 and Matt Spiegel, the CEO at MyCase, is also slated to speak.

I had the slide deck ready to go. My presentation was titled "Game, Set & Match: Serving Clients Better in the 21st Century" and I was going to discuss how tennis trusims can offer lessons for lawyers. You can view the slide deck below.

[VIDEO] My Keynote at the Lexis 2011 PMAC Conference

This is the keynote that I gave at the 2011 LexisNexis Practice Management Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida on September 22, 2011. In it I examine the roots of the rapid technological change beginning in 1995, with a particular focus on the last 6 years. I then explore how emerging technologies, including cloud computing, mobile computing and social media, are affecting the legal field and are changing the way that business is conducted. The video is about 41 minutes long.


Slides From My Keynote Last Week

Last week I spoke at the LexisNexis 2011 Practice Management Annual Conference, which was held in Orlando, Florida.

I discussed the evolution of technology since 1995, with a focus on mobile and Internet-based technology, including cloud computing and social media. I explained how these rapid changes, many of which have occurred in the last 6 years, are affecting the practice of law and why staying abreast of technology changes will help attorneys to better represent their clients.
