Extract from David Horrigan's article "Are the 'Legal Elite' in an Echo Chamber?"
The 38th Legaltech is in the books. Now part of the expanded Legalweek, ALM’s venerable legal technology conference has evolved with the times—and even experimented here and there. For instance, some of us attended “LegalTech New Orleans” almost two decades ago.
I was a speaker at my first Legaltech 18 years ago, but there are many people who’ve been to more Legaltechs than I, and one of them is Bob Ambrogi.
A Massachusetts lawyer, founder of LawSites, editor-in-chief of LexBlog, executive director of the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association, and former editor-in-chief of The National Law Journal, Robert J. Ambrogi is something of an institution in legal media and legal technology.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
Kevin Glass, CEO
As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
