Michael D.J. Eisenberg shared the engineering background that caused him to be a constant source of free technical support for fellow lawyers after he launched a small law firm 16 years ago. The experience led him to create The Tech Savvy Lawyer, a website and podcast for sharing technology and practice management tips for lawyers. Michael discussed some of the post-pandemic technological advances that courts have made to ensure they remain open even when the physical doors close, such as widely available teleconferencing for remote and virtual hearings. He also shared three tips to better handle remote hearings — dress up, check your background, and get a good pair of headphones to ensure you’re properly heard.
