When we think about legal technology tools, we often think about tools to help us solve complicated problems, such as needing to tame the terra-bytes of data associated with a law practice. Judd Kessler, Esq., founder of Abacus Data Systems, Inc. and creator of AbacusLaw software knows a thing or two about that.
However, in his book, Dangerous Law Practice: Myths, Lies and Stupidity, Kessler uses humor and insight to show us how technology can help combat not only new and complex problems, but also the many myths and pieces of bad advice plaguing those just starting out or trying to grow a legal practice.
Kessler takes 35 myths to which lawyers young and old often fall prey. Turning them into often entertaining parables, he gives tangible and practical advice on how to avoid these pitfalls, and often how to combat them with technology.
Dangerous Law Practice makes great reading for anyone looking to start, maintain or grow a legal practice. These great tips will open the eyes of new practitioners and make even experienced lawyers give pause the next time they feel the pull of a common bad habit.
Excerpts of Dangerous Law Practice: Myths, Lies and Stupidity will be available on FindLaw. Be sure to check back each week for the latest installment.
