Ernie Svenson practiced commercial litigation for
26 years, first with a mid-sized New Orleans law firm,
and then for six years as a solo practitioner. He's now a
full-time speaker on tech-related topics. He started his first blogernietheattorney.netin 2002. It was one of five law-related blogs at the time, and it was chosen as an ABA Top 100 Blog two years in a row. Shortly after, he created PDFforLawyers.com, a blog to help lawyers learn to make better use of PDF files in their practice. He started a CLE company (paperlesschase.com) that helps lawyers develop a paperless law practice, and, more recently, he co-founded SocialSuits.co, a website devoted to the effects of social media on lawsuits and the lawyers who try them.
