CEO | Curo Legal
I am a former litigator and [people have said that I am] a pioneer in the legal industry, developing one of the nation’s first “new model” law firms, leveraging cloud-based technology and modern business practices to develop a lean virtual law firm. I have an unhealthy obsession with experimenting with the latest legal and productivity technologies. If there’s a possibility it can be leveraged to better practice and serve clients, chances are I’ve tested it out and annoyed the rest of my team about it.
I serve on the ABA Law Practice Division’s Council and as Chair of the Division’s Futures Initiative. I regularly speak around the country on topics related to legal technology, virtual law practice and the future of the legal profession.
