Hi! I’m Tom Mighell, and I’m currently a Senior Consultant with Contoural, Inc., where I help companies address their records management, electronic discovery, and litigation readiness issues. I’ve been a technology nut for more than twenty years, and I love working with lawyers to help them use technology in ways that provide great service to their clients.
I authored the Mighell Marker Newsletter (formerly the Internet Legal Research Weekly) for 10 years, from 2000-2010. In addition to this blog, I also publish iPad 4 Lawyers, a companion blog to my book iPad in One Hour for Lawyers, which was published in March 2011 by the American Bar Association. My other book, The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together, was co-authored with my legal technology colleague and good friend Dennis Kennedy. Dennis and I also co-host The Kennedy-Mighell Report, a legal technology podcast from the Legal Talk Network.
I’ve been involved with the ABA’s Law Practice Management Section for nearly ten years now; it’s a fantastic organization that provides some amazing resources to lawyers on the “business” side of practicing law, something on which lawyers don’t get nearly enough education – Finance, Management, Marketing and Technology. I served on the ABA TECHSHOW Planning Board for four years, and was honored to serve as its Chair for ABA TECHSHOW 2008. I am also honored to serve as the Law Practice Management Section’s Chair in 2011-2012.
The term Inter Alia is Latin for “among other things.” I intend for this blog to cover my favorite technology topics, as well as the latest in law practice management tips, tricks and resources – among other things. If you have a question about technology, or you’d just like to discuss the topic, please feel to comment on a post or drop me a line!
