O’Brien & Levine Discusses Lawyers Move Towards High Tech and Litigation Spend

O’Brien & Levine Discusses Lawyers Move Towards High Tech and Litigation Spend

Litigation costs can easily spin out of control. Fortunately, high tech tools are becoming a go-to solution for taming litigation spend. Recent news shows lawyers extolling the virtues of video tools that are easy to use, cost efficient and results driven.

This fall, two leading lawyer organizations released special reports covering practice trends related to streamlining technologies for litigation matters. The Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA) and the Women’s Bar Association (WBA) are both well-regarded organizations that support the state’s attorneys as they develop their practices.

MATA released “Practice Trends: Tools to Cut Costs, Save Time and Boost Presentations” in November 2018. In this special report, some of MATA’s leading trial advocates shared their views on modern court reporting tools. In the report, they laud the use of video testimony, video-syncing technology and digital repository services for scheduling. Leading lawyers explain the benefits that video technologies bring to their practices. Not surprisingly, reducing litigation spend while providing better service to support strong client relationships is a leading theme. The report shows how attorneys across the state are experiencing first-hand the benefits to using high-tech tools to support client successes.

The WBA’s constituents echo a similar sentiment in that organization’s fall report, “Trial Practice Trends: Tools to Cut Costs, Save Time and Get Results.” The lawyers involved in this study explain how contemporary court reporting services facilitate time savings and cost reductions that lawyers and their clients desire, while providing a demonstrated facility with technology that clients expect. The overall inclination is that going digital is the right thing to do for many reasons, hitting all the highlights of fast, affordable and easy.

In a recent blog post, “Lawyers Embrace High-Tech Tools to Decrease Litigation Spend”, O’Brien & Levine also outlines the ways technology is changing the legal industry. The leaders at O’Brien & Levine see first-hand how lawyers are gaining traction through technology. By using video conferencing, video depositions, video synchronization and digital exhibits, lawyers gain an edge on their case management, controlling costs associated with their services. O’Brien & Levine helps attorneys successfully embrace the technologies with confidence.

Read Before You Unsubscribe

Read Before You Unsubscribe

We are barraged with an obscene amount of emails on a daily basis. Occasionally, there is a diamond among the rough—a greeting from a friend, a message from your court reporting firm—but for the most part, your emails consist of coupons, deals, and ads. It’s an overwhelming amount of junk. Unsubscribing from each and every one of them takes an unnecessarily long amount of time, so when you’re spring-cleaning your emails, consider these tools.

Unroll.me instantly lets you see all of your subscriptions in an easy-to-navigate list. From there, you can select which ones you’d like to keep, and which you’d rather get rid of. If you desire, you can have all the email subscriptions you DO want delivered to you in a “Rollup” email, which arrives in your inbox once a day and contains only the emails you want.

Unlistr does a little more for you. The “email productivity” program helps you select and automatically unsubscribe from all emails you don’t want to receive. It relays unsubscribe emails, processes unsubscribe links, and performs a number of other automated unsubscription tasks.

Unsubscriber is by far the easiest option. You simply drag your unwanted messages to a folder in your email, and you are unsubscribed from the emailing list.

Think about which one of these services is right for you, and make your email nice and clean again!

#LawyerSuccess with Richard “Dickie” Scruggs

#LawyerSuccess with Richard “Dickie” Scruggs

Dickie Scruggs may not be the person that you ever want to imitate your career after, we mean, like, ever.  He was convicted of bribing a federal judge, was disbarred and sent to prison.  We agree that part is not exactly a success story.  His real success comes after he was released from prison.  Oxford Magazine wrote an article on his life now, post-prison and scandal.

In late 2007 the FBI raided Scruggs’ office, he faced (and was ultimately convicted of) a federal judicial bribery charge.  Not only that, his addiction issues spilled out into the public light during it all.

Richard Scruggs has not had an easy road, himself being the largest obstacle at times.  But from the whole negative experience, he says he has learned so many things.  He also states,”I’m happier today than I have ever been before,” how is that possible?  Mr. Scruggs has left the terrible times as far behind in his mind as he can and focused on the future. But there is more than that. He let that difficult time lead him to a better place in his life.  One where he let his family in and started to give back to the community around him.

When you have undergone a difficult time, has it made you a better person? Perhaps put you in a better place? We would love for you to share on our Facebook page here. Dickie Scruggs shares one of his favorite quotes from Gone with the Wind:”Until you’ve lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.”  So no matter what you lose, keep your focus and let it drive you to a better place.

To see where much of this information came from and to read the best article I’ve enjoyed in awhile click here.

This article was written by Michelle Cady-Cook.  She is the Director of Marketing and part owner of Cady Reporting (a WBENC company).  She is a sustaining member of the Cleveland Association of Paralegals and is currently serving as Chair of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association Green Initiative Committee and Chair of the Follow Up Committee for the National Network of Reporting Companies (NNRC). She has been officially involved in the legal community for over 10 years.  Within the framework of Cady Reporting Services, she partners with locally owned court reporting firms across the country to continually improve the practice of litigation. Cady Reporting Services is located at 1468 W. 9th St. Cleveland, OH 44113.  Our court reporters and videographers personally serve the state of Ohio, and we daily schedule court reporters and other litigation support services through our partners in the NNRC.  The National Network of Reporting Companies is your personal connection to coverage wherever and whenever you need it.

What is the Difference Between a Judge and a Magistrate?

What is the Difference Between a Judge and a Magistrate?

This is a question that comes up time and time again, because there is not a definitive answer. The specifics vary between states and even regions, but even so, we can provide a generalized answer. Here are five major differences between the two.

  1. Judges have a much higher power than magistrates.
  2. Judges usually hear larger, more complex cases, while magistrates hear about smaller cases—such as petty crime or traffic offenses.
  3. Judges can preside over larger areas, where a magistrate’s area of jurisdiction is limited to smaller areas, such as city or county.
  4. There is a different level of power given to judges and magistrates. Judges have high authority over most matters, where magistrates are given a narrow breadth of authority. Judges can render final judgement in a case, magistrates cannot.
  5. Most judges are elected for a set term, but magistrates are appointed by the judge and serve based on the judge’s wishes.

To learn about more specifics about the roles of judges and magistrates, visit your state’s Magistrate website.
