Dear Small Firm Friends,
As promised, I’m here to point out a few more reasons you might kick yourself if you miss this year’s LPM-TECH conference in Columbia on September 15:
- Superstars. When our CLE division asked me for my suggestions for speakers, I gave them my wish list – never dreaming they would pick THREE of the biggest names on the list: Brett Burney, Debbie Foster, and Paul Unger.
I am talking about three past ABA TECHSHOW Chairs who happen to experts in law office management AND technology. Ms. Foster will even be back as co-chair of TECHSHOW 2018. When she last spoke at our conference, it was standing room only! This time, we are prepared with a bigger room. Lawyers raved about her practical, real-life approach. Paul Unger is one of my personal favorite speakers, hands down. When I attend a conference where he is speaking, you can bet I am in that room. Newer to South Carolina audiences, Brett Burney is another popular national speaker on valuable topics for small firm lawyers, from e-discovery to practicing law from a mobile device. These three speakers are superstars, but they are just three of a GREAT lineup of speakers, which includes SC lawyers.
- Change your practice for the better now. All speakers will have good ideas you can easily and immediately implement in your practice. Our superstar speakers are sensitive to both practicality and cost issues for small firm lawyers. The concepts from this CLE could easily transform your law practice. For example, solo practitioner Jeremy Thompson, of Columbia, says that attending the Conference several years ago led him to immediately change the way he was managing his practice, with satisfying and verifiable results – practices he continues to utilize.
- It’s a favorite. Lastly, after the email I sent the Section last week, I received several favorable, unsolicited, emails from lawyers about their experiences with the Conference. One included this: “I have been to LPM-Tech the last two years and loved it both times. It’s a great event and I always found the information presented extremely valuable.”
SO, ASK YOURSELF: Can you afford to miss this Conference? You know whether you can be practicing more efficiently and being more profitable. You know whether you don’t know enough about many of these topics. Our ethics rules require a lawyer to be competent, first and foremost (Rule 1.1). Are you management and tech competent?
I REALLY hope you’ll register NOW for this FUN and USEFUL Conference! For the early bird discount, register before September 2. Don’t forget: members of the Solo & Small Firm Section save an additional $50. If you are receiving this email and aren’t a member of the Section, it’s just $20 to join and you’ll still save $30 on the conference! To join, email Emily Worley or Courtney Troutman for more information.
THANK YOU and see you there!
