Hi! I’m Tom Mighell, and I’m currently Vice President of Delivery at Contoural, Inc., where I help companies address their information governance, records management, and litigation readiness issues. I’ve been a technology nut for going on thirty years now, 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. When the iPad came out in 2010, I wrote a few (now out of date) books on how lawyers can use iPads in their practices – they included iPad for Lawyers in One Hour, iPad for Litigators in One Hour and iPad Apps for Lawyers in One Hour – original, I know.
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 Division for more than fifteen 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, as well as Co-Chair with Debbie Foster for ABA TECHSHOW 2018. I was also privileged to serve as the Law Practice Division’s Chair in 2011-2012.
When I first introduced this blog back in August 2002, I called it “Inter Alia,” Latin for “among other things.” While I’ve personalized the blog’s title a bit more, I still intend for this blog to cover my favorite technology topics, 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!
