Paper Slows You Down

Everything to do with paper is inefficient - receiving it, printing it, sending it, storing it, moving it around, and even reading it.

Paper slows you down.

Removing paper from your practice saves you a lot of time and energy, allowing you to focus on the work that earns you money.

I Got Rid of Paper

Everything Changed

As my practice ‘took off’ (ie. got a little bit busier) a few years ago I had less and less time for myself, my family, and my friends.

I knew there were inefficiencies in my practice but I couldn’t see them clearly enough to remove them.

When I identified paper as the culprit, I removed it.

That changed everything.

I Worked Less

I Earned More

I’ve spent the last 6 years trimming the fat in my practice.

I’ve halved my weekly work time from 80+ hours to less than 40.

My income hasn’t dropped.

Would you like to do the same?

Lorna Duffy, Solicitor

"It's amazing how much of an improvement Gerard's courses and advice have made to my working life. I've become far more efficient with digital documents, moved away from a paper-centric system, and my productivity has increased hugely.

I had several calls with Gerard which I found invaluable in my overall progress. My work-life balance has benefited and I've even started to digitally outsource some of my non-legal workload. I'm thrilled! Highly recommend!”

Desmond Dockery SC

"This has made a huge difference to my practice. I can work far more efficiently with digital documents. The step-by-step process has made me much more efficient in my work.

I no longer feel tied to my office and can work from anywhere. Doing the course gave me the confidence to make the switch to paperless and I would recommend it to other lawyers without hesitation.“

Ryan McManus BL

"I do a lot of construction law which is very paper heavy. I am now much more efficient in being able to log and have easy access to important documents that I want quick access to. I do a lot of travelling and the one thing I didn't want was to be horsing boxes and papers and files with me.

I've been able to get rid of paper after doing the course. I would be happy to recommend the course to other lawyers.“

Marguerite Bolger SC

"Extremely well structured and presented. I learned a lot from it and am feeling, for the first time, that going paperless is actually an achievable goal."

Dermot Hewson BL

"The whole experience has been excellent. The substance, structure and communication of the information is first class. I really feel able to work in a more productive way - I'm hooked."

Neil Butler, Solicitor

"A very fine suite of education pieces around digital notepads, note-taking, and how to use and annotate PDFs. Gerard is very approachable, very open, and supportive."

Sonia McEntee, Solicitor

"I’ve been nodding my head at practically every single point you make. This is so well thought out and presented, it’s seriously impressive."

Emma Sullivan, Barrister

"I’m finding it excellent as a barrister in my first year struggling to work out what paperless might ‘look like’. A fantastic course, which I have already recommended to colleagues."

John O'Kelly SC

"Provided a straightforward overview of what the software can do together with practical examples of how each of its functions operates. I'm looking forward to getting up and running and putting what I've learned into practice."
