Do you enjoy pushing paper?

If not, then you should learn how to create a paperless practice. So that you can eliminate drudgery, speed up workflow, and lower your overhead.

The Paperless Lawyering Course is specifically designed to help your practice start to run like a well-oiled machine.

It will show you how to reduce the amount of paper you deal with, and then:

  • Automate more of your law practice 
  • Ensure everything is always organized
  • Be the rare lawyer who gets things done both faster and better
  • Work less without sacrificing your income
  • Take back control of your life


If you want to lower your stress levels, avoid burnout (and spend more time with your family, friends, and hobbies) then this course is for you.

Once you've finished the course you'll be happier and more relaxed, just like hundreds of other solo and small firm lawyers who've slipped the surly bonds of paper.

Scroll down and take a look at the curriculum and see how it might be right for you.

Ernie: great course and thanks for all the time and effort you devote to making us all better lawyers/practitioners. For $7 bucks, it's crazy for anyone not to take the course. My only wish is that you had simply produced and then taken a Word/Wordperfect document, and, once created, run it through the scanning procedure so that it is OCR'ed and stored in the could. Be that as it may, I will figure it out. Best, John PS W/ your Nuanced Power PDF download, which I have not read yet, I am certain I can understand the process from beginning to end.
