Technology is changing the face of the legal practice by opening new opportunities in data management and storage, legal software, marketing and billing options. Today, a lawyer practicing alone or with a handful of colleagues can accomplish far more than that same lawyer or team could've several years ago. Fortunately, an array of cost-effective technology inputs exist from which practitioners can use in their practice.

Hear from both fellow attorneys and tech experts on the range of options available. Learn which are the best for your practice and how to establish the necessary support systems to ensure the firm operates smoothly from Day One. This session will help you save time, money and turn over happy clients!

Topics include:

- Do I need an office space or can I work from a virtual one?
- What do I really need to get started and what can wait?
- What is this cloud?
- Useful hardware platforms; such as computers, tablets, iPads, smartphones
- Software platforms; such as productivity and practice management programs
