Automation can apply to nearly every aspect of your practice, saving time and expanding the scope of your services. In the July/August 2019 issue of Law Practice, I illustrated the benefits of automation through a fictional attorney named Joe Lawyer. Now I’ve brought together four lawyers who have experimented with automation in their practices for real world perspective about the advantages of automating your practice.
Brooke Moore owns MyVirtual.Lawyer, a virtual law firm model providing flat fee and subscription-based limited scope legal services and MyVirtual.Lawyer for Attorneys, which assists other attorneys in implementing limited scope, virtual components into their firms, as well as providing coaching, consulting, and technology strategy and implementation assistance.
Dina Eisenberg owns OutsourceEasier.com and LawFirmOmbuds.com. Her mission is to help women lawyers become more intentional in how they build their law practice and improve their leadership and management skills. She consults with law firms on organizational development and conflict management and serves as an external ombudsman.
Erin Gerstenzang leads a boutique practice in Atlanta that serves hemp and medical marijuana businesses, as well as individuals facing criminal drug or alcohol-related charges. She also runs the EHG Law Firm Collective, where she leads a collaborative mentorship-focused criminal defense group that helps women develop legal, technology and business skills that accelerate solo law firm growth and success.
Kim Bennett owns a coaching practice in Atlanta. She empowers women entrepreneurs, especially women of color, to disrupt the legal industry by teaching them how to create a stable, sustainable and scalable stream of income through subscription services. Bennett’s vision is simple—it’s time for men to take a back seat and watch women, especially women of color, lead the law.
