In our firm, being paperless unquestionably increases the efficiency of our attorneys. In most circumstances, we travel to depositions, mediations, and hearings with laptops instead of bankers’ boxes. Our staff and our attorneys are comfortable with the system we have in place, which allows us to reduce the amount of physical space (and cost) we dedicate to the storage of paper files. We believe our transition to a paperless office has been a success.
I want your transition to a paperless office to be a success as well. I hope this series has encouraged you to look differently at your current office configuration and has challenged you to question whether you are as efficient with managing your practice as you could be.
