Increasing Your TQ (Technology Quotient): Why Lawyers Must Become Competent in the Tech Domain

By Edward J. Zohn

I start with a very simple proposition: All lawyers, including solos and small firm attorneys, must keep up with computer and technological advancements, or else their colleagues and clients will pass them by. The old ways don’t cut it anymore. From my perch, however, I see quite a percentage of small firm attorneys who are blissfully behind in their technology quotient (TQ). They just want to “practice law,” of course. Attorneys who have been unable to adapt are stuck in the old ways; some attorneys, including so-called digital natives, are incredibly resistant to change. Don’t be afraid, however. You don’t need to be experts; you just need to know how to use the technology, not design it, and this is not as hard as you think.
