Law practice is an individual pursuit, even when you work at a large firm. What works for one lawyer may not work for another in quite the same way. As you approach technology for your law practice, be aware of what drives you, how you plan to be successful, and find technology that works within that model.

Many of the examples of effective or productive technology use will be from people outside the legal profession. Your lawyer colleagues will also be excellent guides to what works or not for people who have similar challenges to you. This can help you shortcut the trial and error that you might otherwise engage in while trying to identify what works best for you.

There are definitely times you will not want or need to use technology in your practice. Law practice technology can make you more efficient and able to serve your clients more productively when you find the balance that works for you.
