About

I’ve written and spoken about technology and the practice of law for a number of years. Working as mostly a hobby I wrote scores of articles about technology for lawyers and an ABA-published book, The Complete Internet Handbook for Lawyers (ABA 1999). I was a featured speaker at many of the country’s leading tech-for-lawyers conferences, including ABA Techshow.

I put my legal tech activities on hold a few years ago to concentrate on my day job as a federal lawyer with a variety of agencies. I recently retired after 37 years of service, fondly clutching my peer-awarded Lawrence J. Froehich Award (career achievement). I am now able to address projects I put on hold while working full time as a lawyer. Re-entering the legal tech space is a priority.

I’ll be using this website to support professional projects and an occasional Off the Clock topic. The domain name Netlawtools.com dates back to my consulting and website design days. Nowadays I limit my professional activities to writing and an occasional speaking or training engagement.

My most important current project is a book with the working title Knowledge Management for Lawyers: Building A Culture of Success.
