Ernie Svenson-a.k.a. well-known blogger Ernie the Attorney-was an early evangelist for what he calls The Paperless Chase. The basic premise: “Anything you can do with paper, you can do more with PDF. Way more.”

Now he spends a lot of time teaching, training and speaking, all aimed at enabling small-firm and solo lawyers with the ability “to save money, make money and outmatch bigger firm adversaries,” he says.

In fact, calling Svenson an evangelist is an understatement. “The walls are closing in on lawyers who haven’t adapted, with e-filing in the courts and the increased use of the PDF format by others,” Svenson says. “It’s here. It’s good. Do it.”
