Today Todd Hendrickson talks about how he uses technology to give him an edge against better-funded opponents in his solo med-mal and personal injury practice.

But first, Sam and Aaron explain why a shredding service is better than throwing your clients’ files in the trash.

Sam has been collecting examples of technological incompetence, but this firm managed to screw up without technology of any kind. It just tossed its client files in a dumpster for anyone to find.

Hendrickson explains that there are no small medical malpractice cases, and managing 12–20 of them in active litigation at a time is no small task. A paperless office is essential to his ability to do so, and so is a ScanSnap iX500.

When it comes to managing everything he has to do, Hendrickson relies on OmniFocus. And when it comes to litigation tools, he is a huge fan of TrialPad and TranscriptPad for iPad. Seriously, read his TrialPad review.
