Episode Notes

When addressing how resistant lawyers are to new technology, many people believe that the issue is simply generational and that millennial attorneys will fill that void. In this report from On The Road, host Joe Patrice speaks with Procertas founder Casey Flaherty and principal attorney Darth Vaughn about lawyer proficiency with currently available technology and the often overlooked skills gap present within the legal industry.

Casey Flaherty is an attorney originally from Los Angeles but now based in Austin, TX. He started his career as an associate at Holland & Knight Law Firm and then moved to be in-house counsel at Kia Motors. After four years at Kia, he recently started consulting on his own, focusing on empirically based approaches to legal quality and legal spend management for in-house departments. Flaherty is well-known for creating the Legal Technology Audit (LTA), a test of basic technological proficiency for lawyers and in-house corporate departments.

Darth Vaughn is a principal with Procertas (Professional Certifications and Technology Assessments) and a trial attorney in Southern California. As a former business technology consultant, Darth is passionate about keeping businesses growing and prospering. To that end, he promotes improving the quality and efficiency of legal professionals through the proper use of basic technology tools. Darth was honored in 2014 by the National Bar Association with the Ronda F. Williams Emerging Leader Award and was selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in both 2015 and 2016.
