Automation is a wonderful tool created by technology to make the lives of lawyers (particularly solos) easier. Many are intimidated to approach this potentially massive change in their practice, but it’s actually quite easy and inexpensive when you start small, and you will begin to save time immediately. How, you ask?

In first of a two-part New Solo, Adriana Linares interviews Andrew Legrand, a solo lawyer who started his practice immediately out of law school using technology to increase efficiency. His tips start with something as small as an autocomplete for your signature to auto filling forms he regularly uses. Tune in for great application and automation advice that applies to novices and tech gurus alike.

Andrew Legrand is general counsel to small business owners, helping clients start new businesses, draft operating agreements, employment contracts, review leases, and file for trademarks. After graduating law school, he started a paperless, technology-driven solo practice in an effort to be more efficient. Two years later, he started working with another attorney and law school classmate on a partnership. In August of 2014, they renamed the law firm Spera Law Group.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Solo Practice University.
