I had the pleasure of finally meeting Ernie Svenson (after years of ‘knowing’ him online) and today Ernie is going to talk about the virtues, professionally and financially, of going paperless and how he did it. Frankly, anyone starting a practice today should be paperless from the start and everything done to grow the practice should be predicated on this principle. You will also enjoy anecdotally (if not belly laugh) at the stories Ernie shares on how he outclassed large firm opponents – something more and more paperless practitioners are taking pride in. But it’s not about pride, it’s about truly effective advocacy for the client. Paperless in the 21st century is the only way to go.

Ernie Svenson is a New Orleans commercial litigator who began practicing law by being dependent on secretaries and paralegals to manage bulky paper files. Then he discovered how to use technology to create a paperless law practice.
In 2006, Ernie renounced his partnership at well-respected 50-lawyer firm to start a Ninja-efficient, solo practice. As a nationally recognized speaker, author, and blogger, he’s helped hundreds of other lawyers in small firms learn to slash overhead, improve profitability, and gain tactical advantages over adversaries—even if they find computers more stressful than helpful.
