RIP: Ross Kodner, Legal Technology Guru · Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites


Bob Ambrogi:


Think back to Sept. 11, 2001. In the aftermath of that horrible event, many of us were so stunned and shocked that we did not know how to respond. Not Ross. Less than a week after the attack, the New York State Bar Association launched a website called Legal TechAid, devoted to serving as a clearinghouse of information about replacing computer systems, recovering data and reestablishing law practices interrupted by the events of that day. The site was almost entirely the result of the volunteer work of Ross and Dale Tincher, president of, who joined forces and scrambled to make it happen. (Ross preserved an archived version of the site on the Microlaw website.)
