From the President

Hello,

As we make our way into June, I hope you find these articles on eDiscovery and on technology for the legal industry interesting.

Just as a reminder when scheduling, we do provide web conferencing services. This allows you to conduct depositions remotely from the convenience of a laptop, desktop, or a mobile device in your own office. Make sure to try it out next time you’re traveling and need to plan a deposition.

Enjoy!

Best,

Sheila Atkinson-Baker
