Attorneys continue to be faced with the challenges of adapting to a “new normal” in the advent of rapidly evolving societal and technological advances as well as increased competition from nonlawyers. Some have embraced change, automating with new systems, and adopting progressive attitudes. Others, to their detriment, remain in denial about the significant impact these changes have on their ability to prosper in tomorrow’s environment.


During this session, Cindy will discuss future trends including the rise of non lawyers performing functions traditionally reserved for licensed attorneys and the steps that attorneys must take to flourish in an age of unparalleled innovation. We’ll touch on benefits, pitfalls and ethical considerations when using ChatGPT in the law office setting. You will learn how to serve more clients with greater efficiency by making shifts in your practice management methods in the areas of time management, firm infrastructure, team building and client relationship management.


This timely session is designed for attorneys who would like to be in better control of their workloads. Cynthia Sharp will share practice organization and management tools, offering detailed explanations as to how law firms benefit from the diligent and persistent use of these tools. This program will offer concrete strategies that attendees can adapt to their own personal style that will help them to:


• Manage client expectations

• Create a culture of client communication

• Deliver top notch client service

• Develop a powerful and loyal staff

• Stay on top of pending cases

• Minimize daily stress and irritation


We will provide tools that will help attendees become more effective leaders and efficient managers.
