“I have been practicing law for nearly 43 years— long enough to recognize the real deal. Ernie is the real deal.”
“Ernie provides practical insight into how to take your law practice to the next level. He provides both the high level perspective that helps you see the bigger picture, and the simple action steps to help you create the practice you want.”
"You single handedly have introduced me to most things that have grown my business."
"You are showing lawyers how to transform small-firm practices in a way I don’t see anyone else being able to do.”
I’ve taken the Systems Workshop twice now and would recommend to any attorney who is REALLY interested in doing the work to improve their practice. This is not a one-time thing that you do; it is a framework for intentionally improving your practice over time.
When I used to think about systems, I felt completely overwhelmed. I had no idea where to start and felt so behind.
But now I think of systems as a way of capturing things that I do more than once so I don't have to recreate the will everytime. The goal is to get them to a place where I can pass them along to someone else to do, but baby steps. And I've realized that you don't just take the systems course and you're done.
This is a continual process of doing the thing, reflecting on how it worked, and then improving or trying something else if it didn't work the way I wanted it to.
Thanks for recommending Sanebox. I had to try it – especially since I have been losing badly lately in the battle of the inbox. It works pretty simply. And I now have less panic when glancing at my Outlook.
I've been given concrete steps to improve my practice. All of it is very doable, and it never feels like too much.

"The amount of information we are bombarded with daily regarding technology can be overwhelming. I really needed guidance from folks whom I trust and who have experience to tell me what has worked for them and what hasn’t. Ernie does a fine job of identifying how to start putting a toe into the technology water…Really, this course has opened up new windows on the world of running a legal practice more effectively and efficiently.”
"When I got sick recently, my team was able to follow our systems to bring in four new matters, and get court filings done, all in my absence. I really appreciate all that I learned in this program."

Ernie is one of the few voices I find consistently helpful because he provides practical, current advice and roadmaps based on decades of experience with the practice of law and the business of running a practice, including technology and systems.”
"I found information about how to improve my practice from marketing to intake to core foundation values. The course was so much more than just technology. Today my office has gone paperless and it is much thanks to this program for helping me through that process. I highly recommend the program and Ernie Svenson."
"Gads, haven’t been this excited about my business in years."
“You helped me to go paperless. And I now feel completely liberated.”
