CBA PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
DICK GAST, J.
In partnership with the CBA, Affinity will provide a wealth of resources to assist our members in managing and developing their practices, understanding and using appropriate technologies, and becoming better lawyers.
If you’re like me, you prefer the practice of law to the business of managing your law practice. You’d rather be in the thick of oral argument or studiously crafting a contract than evaluating the best billing and accounting software for your practice. For those of you at big firms, law practice management largely is handled by a cadre of talented support staff, leaving you to focus on the nuts and bolts of your practice. But the majority of Colorado lawyers (including yours truly) practice in small to mid-size firms or on their own as solos. For us, it can be daunting to juggle the competing tasks of serving clients and staying on top of the latest technology developments that may benefit our practices.
In today’s world, the rapid pace of business technology development greatly impacts our daily routines as lawyers, and all indications are that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. We face unique challenges in growing our practices, and the increased reliance on ever-changing technologies, while simplifying life in some areas, can also leave even experienced practitioners feeling up a creek without a paddle.
