The Legal Profession is Changing. I’m working to improve it.
I believe that the future of the legal profession requires lawyers to work to craft solutions for their clients utilizing three schools of thought: technology, process, and design. Lawyers in the 21st century are under constant threat of displacement from other information providers who are willing to disassemble exactly what it is a lawyer does. It is my belief that the future of the profession requires the legal community to rethink and retool itself as collections of unique artisan crafters and move into the space of client solutions.
In order to best serve my clients and craft deep, thoughtful, client-focused solutions, I work at the intersection of these schools of thought.
In the 21st century, we continue these movements into the “Information Professions”, beginning the information revolution. Lawyers must stay abreast of all technology improvements in order to access the best tools for creating solution for clients. These are both customer facing, but also allow lawyers themselves to better equip, educate, and train themselves in disseminating legal work.
I believe an unpopular, but real truth: not all legal matters are unique. The individuals that are a part of them are without question, unique. But the underlying processes, procedures, documents, and steps taken on each matter often run a familiar course. By studying, mapping, and dissecting these paths, lawyers can deliver more transparency both to their clients and themselves in outcomes and eventually, pricing.
Design Thinking is a modern school of thought that focuses on the empathetic and interactive process of solution crafting. Weaving this principal into legal solutions allows lawyers to better understand their clients and their true desires in order to craft deep, meaningful solutions. Design Thinking enables lawyers from all practices to create interactive and user-centric information to empower clients.
