The annual announcement of the TechnoLawyer @ Awards is out. Neil Squillante at TechnoLawyer has created a great tradition to give some recognition and props to some of the best people and products in the legal technology field. Check out the list of this year’s winners.
I wanted to single out my friend Jim Calloway for winning in the “Favorite Law Practice Management Blog” category. I’ve done presentations with Jim on a number of occasions and had the pleasure of serving on the TECHSHOW Board with Jim for the last two years. We’ve worked hard, had more than a few laughs and I’m endebted to him for many things, not the least of which is taking us on a evening trip to the site of the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial.
Jim and I spent some time together at the Missouri Solo and Small Firm Conference a few weeks ago, got the chance to speak together on stage for the first time in ages, and got to spend some time together without talking about TECHSHOW planning. We also talked a bit about this award and Jim’s chances for winning it. No one deserves it more than Jim. I know how delighted he is about winning this award, but I’ll let you in on a little secret – I’m even more delighted and happy than Jim is that he won. He’s done so much to help lawyers in their practices and it’s great that he gets this recognition and public pat on the back.
Unfortunately, there’s no cash prize for the award. Perhaps Jim’s employers might find room in their hearts for a little raise or bonus in recognition of the work Jim has done, the high regard in which he is held, and the good reputation he has generated for the Oklahoma Bar.
Congratulations, Jim. A job well done, my friend. Keep up the good work.
Check out the list of winners to see some new names, some familiar names and to get a good view of what products are attracting the most attention in the use of technology in the practice of law.
Another great job on the awards from Neil – although I still miss the online awards ceremonies that Neil used to do. TechnoLawyer continues its tradition of being a must-read for anyone interested in the use of technology in the practice of law.
