40% of small law firms don’t have a website, and Casey Flaherty’s Legal Tech Audit was just the beginning of his quest to reform the way law firms use technology and price their services.

Casey Flaherty’s Legal Tech Audit was a shot over the bow of law firms everywhere. Here’s the eye-opening quote from the ABA Journal‘s coverage:

I’ve administered the audit 10 times to nine firms (one firm took it twice). As far as I am concerned, all the firms failed—some more spectacularly than others. The audit takes me 30 minutes. … The best pace of any associate was 2.5 hours. The worst pace was 8 hours. Both the median and mean (average) pace rounded to 5 hours.

In our interview, Flaherty talks about where the LTA came from, how he developed it, and what it means for the future (including his own future at Cost Control, LLC, his new venture).
