Do it yourself. It's not a secret anymore.

DIY is all the buzz. Heck, we even have a cable show dedicated to it. Thank you, HGTV. So, why don’t we hear more about DIY in the legal space?

Because service vendors don’t want you to do it yourself. Doing it for you is their bread and butter. That’s how they make money. So, what if I said you can get the bread and butter for free (or little cost) to your firm? You’d want a slice, wouldn’t you? Reduce costs and increase billable revenue by making your own bread-and-butter sandwich. Bring those services in-house.

You can do it yourself. Process images to searchable PDFs, create load files for all major lit-support databases, perform extremely accurate OCR, reorganize images, batch-print at rated speeds, and much more.

When you depend on a service vendor, you depend on its timeframe, not your own. Sometimes, your legal team waits days to get working documents, essentially wasting precious time it could devote to the case itself. That doesn’t make sense when you can bring the job in-house. Get working docs when you need them – how you need them – and break the chains of outsourcing. Cut out the middleman, already.

You’ll gain a competitive edge because you’ll have more time for the case.  Plus, the client doesn’t eat the cost you would’ve spent on a random service vendor. Your clients gain value because they’re getting better, more efficient legal services for less money. All the while, you’re making more money.

See, you increase billable revenue by doing the work yourself. I know a St. Louis firm that did just that. They cut costs to process images for their client and billed for the work they did. Everybody saved money. Now that’s a win-win if I’ve ever seen one.

I say, get work product faster, gain the competitive edge, and keep the money for yourself and your client.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if
you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble
clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing
but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
