ABA TECHSHOW 2019

ABA TECHSHOW 2019 logo

Whether you’re a tech geek or not, you should consider attending the ABA TECHSHOW if you want to make your practice more efficient. It’s not just for lawyers, but for anyone in the legal field. In addition to the dozens of CLE sessions to choose from, you can also visit the EXPO hall and check out products to improve your practice. We discovered my firm’s case management system in the TECHSHOW EXPO hall a few years ago, which then led to the discovery of our document management system and phone system. All were big improvements over our old systems.

Speaking of sessions, I’ll be back in Chicago this year presenting two sessions:

If neither of those topics are for you, check out the 2019 schedule for a complete listing. I always have a hard time narrowing down the choices, although I plan to hit most all of the sessions in the Mac Track. A few of the sessions I have my eyes on:

In addition to learning from Heidi and Julie, I’m looking forward to seeing other topnotch speakers like Brett Burney of Apps in Law, David Sparks of Mac Power Users and MacSparky, Jeff Richardson of iPhone JD, and many more.

If you attend, please say hello.


I talk DEVONthink on the Apps in Law Podcast

I recently had the pleasure of being on the Apps in Law podcast with Brett Burney, where Brett and I talked about my love of DEVONthink and DEVONthink to Go, and how I use DEVONthink in my law practice.

If you’re a lawyer and are at all tech-savvy, I highly recommend subscribing to the Apps in Law podcast. In each episode, Brett welcomes a guest to discuss an app he or she uses in a legal setting. I’ve not only learned of some apps, but have been able to reexamine my use of apps I already use. On top of it, Brett is an engaging host and makes for an entertaining listen.
