LIFT Lunch & Learn
LIFT Lunch & Learn – THE MODERN SOLO PRACTICE: HOW TO OUT COMPETE BIGLAW WITH TECHNOLOGY & BEST PRACTICES FOR LESS THAN $1000 PER MONTH (Invitation Only)

Speaker: Kevin S. Vogeltanz litigates civil and criminal cases in New Orleans. A solo practitioner who forgoes a support staff, Kevin handles each aspect of every case from engagement agreement to trial. By using technology and streamlined practices, Kevin not only provides his clients with excellent representation, but does so at a fraction of the overhead most firms incur. A cum laude graduate from the University of Arkansas School of Law, Kevin was recruited by one of New Orleans's top firms where he litigated maritime, oil & gas, and white-collar matters until 2012 when he left to start his own practice.
