Surprise! Surprise! In a 2011 poll run by the Lawyerist blog, they asked Do you use Dictation? and found that almost half of the lawyers, 42.86%, did not use dictation at all!
Not surprisingly, therefore, Michelle Wickam who works as an attorney for Pinnacle Security says lawyers spend 30% of their day writing. That’s almost 2.5 hours of writing, assuming you work 8 hours a day.
Simply put, almost half of the lawyers spend 2.5 hours on, perhaps, non-billable hours of writing/typing, tasks that don’t require legal expertise or can be delegated to assistants and administrative support.
Now it’s your turn: Do you use dictation to save time and overhead?
