Lawyers in Transition-Planning a Mindful Life

We wanted to share our insights and experiences along with those of other solo practitioners and small firm practitioners who have worked their way through their own challenges in dealing with pre-retirement planning. We like the idea of shifting from “mindless aging” to “mindful living.” We would like to invite colleagues and friends to come forward to share their experiences to help our readers begin to experience the importance of building a transition plan. It is important to understand that the journey from full-time work to full-time retirement could take several years to accomplish, so that is why the more time you put into planning this journey the better your outcomes will be.

Ross, the world’s first artificially intelligent attorney, has its first official law firm. Baker & Hostetler announced that they will be employing Ross for its bankruptcy practice, currently comprised of almost 50 lawyers.

So what can ROSS do?

  1. Provide you a highly relevant answer, not 1000s of results, to your question posed in natural language, not keywords.
  2. Monitor the law for changes that can positively/negatively affect your case, instead of flooding you with legal news.

  4. Offer a simple, consistent experience across all your devices and form factors.

How AI And Crowdsourcing Are Remaking The Legal Profession | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

Ambrogi has since produced his own streamlined listing that currently has nearly 500 companies offering technologies to the legal industry. Several are courting attorneys who need better, cheaper ways to sort through the avalanche of legal filings, rulings, and spiderwebs of citations between cases, from the local to federal level.
