Ernest Svenson a/k/a Ernie the Attorney is a smart guy. I am fortunate to have gotten to know Ernie over the years as a fellow blogger, and I was able to have dinner with him last year when I was in New Orleans for an ABA meeting. Of course, one of the many things I like about Ernie is that he’s a Mac guy, but I really like the fact that he thinks "big."
For instance, Ernie is a big fan of technology, and he explains how attorneys can implement it into their practices. He says that his theory of technology is that "it should just work." I agree wholeheartedly, and one of criteria I use in reviewing any product is the ease with which I can use it without having to consult its manual.
Ernie has published a lengthy article titled "Digital Workflow – Technology I Use to Practice Law" that is recommended reading for all attorneys, regardless of how tech savvy they are (or aren’t). In this article, Ernie discusses what tools he uses, and (more importantly) why he uses them. I urge you to read his article and then spend some time thinking about what you use and why you use it.
