New ABA book serves as a personal legal technology consultant for the solo, small firm lawyer

CHICAGO, Jan. 23, 2019 — Just published by the ABA, “The 2019 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide” helps lawyers find the leading and most cost-effective equipment for their practice. Authors and industry experts Sharon Nelson, John Simek and Mike Maschke continue to provide reliable recommendations and up-to-date suggestions with the 12th edition of this well-established handbook.

Attorneys need to keep pace with the latest in legal technology, but many solo or small firm lawyers cannot afford the luxury of a tech consultant. “The 2019 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide” provides a quick, easy read of all the information lawyers need to know, allowing attorneys to ensure the firm can capitalize on technology to enhance productivity and client service. The authors keep this new volume streamlined with thoroughly vetted, vendor-neutral product selections that change annually with the best of legal tech, along with details of how and when to upgrade.

Nelson, Simek and Maschke are the co-authors of the 11 previous editions of this book (2008–18). They are the president, vice president and CEO of Sensei Enterprises, Inc., respectively. Nelson and Simek co-host Legal Talk Network’s “Digital Detectives” podcast, and Nelson is also a co-host of Legal Talk Network’s “Digital Edge: Lawyers and Technology” podcast. All three authors are frequent speakers on legal technology topics.
