We Use Technology to Our Advantage
We are always seeking ways to make our work more effective and efficient. We are confident that we spend as much on technology per lawyer as do most very large law firms. Every person who works at our firm has a high-quality computer, the latest software, and multiple monitors. We employ voice-recognition software to streamline dictation. We have a high speed, large capacity printer/copier/scanner and every document that comes into the office and every document that leaves the office gets scanned. All of our digital information is stored on a RAID array and to an off-site backup server to ensure we never lose a byte of data. Every pdf document is converted to searchable text and then indexed to be immediately searchable. Consequently, we can search the documents generated in decades of practice or the in complex business litigation in a matter of seconds.
We pay for and extensively use virtually all the legal research databases available from Lexis-Nexis and purchase other research databases as necessary — the extensive insurance business and law database available from Integrated Risk Management Institute (IRMI) and the non-profit organizations database available from GuideStar, for example.
We use sophisticated software to efficiently organize, review, and evaluate the thousands of documents that are often generated in the complex litigation we handle. Each document can be cross-referenced by date, party, witness, and issue, allowing the easy compilation of chronologies, and interactive witness and exhibit lists.
