INTRODUCING GEEK LIKE A GIRL

Practical E-Case Management Thoughts & Lessons

Welcome! This project is the result of over a decade in litigation. From Big Firm, to boutique, to solo practice and small firm, from defense to plaintiff representation, from commercial litigation to family law and a touch of criminal defense. Time and time again, Giugi Carminati (the proverbial geek) found herself dealing with the same frustrations and knowledge gaps within her teams. After years of explaining the same e-discovery, procedure, and file management concepts to paralegals, legal assistants, associates, and colleagues, she realized the issue was endemic. Technology and leveraging technology to organize cases continues to be a niche area, rather than a basic skill set. So Geek Like a Girl came to be.

Geek Like a Girl is a multi-faceted resource for legal professionals who want to fill the gaps between school and on-the-job learning at a law firm. Welcome! And please come back soon.
