Since 2007, my company has made the lives of thousands of lawyers a whole lot easier. If your law firm is plagued with billing and collection problems, lacks insight into your performance, cannot seem to get organized, and/or are stuck with inelegant, ancient software, Rocket Matter is built for you.

Rocket Matter is my baby. It's a cloud and mobile software platform for lawyers to run more profitable and automated law firms. We'd love to show you more about how we can make your life easier. Sign up for a free trial and we'll see how we can help: https://goo.gl/BSMfnR.

My co-author Dave Maxfield and I published recognized the lack of formalized business processes in most law firms, so we decided to write a book. Our effort, "The Lean Law Firm: Run Your Firm Like the World's Most Profitable Businesses" (ABA, 2018) was the bestselling book at ABA TECHSHOW in 2018. We combine a graphic novel and engaging writing to inject systems-thinking into the business of law. Please take a look at www.leanlawfirmbook.com where you can find information on the book and our weekly podcast.

Law firms and bar associations invite me to speak on a variety of topics: cybersecurity, Lean, technology, and health and wellness are my specialties. I'm an avid reader and learner and love to share information in interactive, humorous sessions.

I'm more often known as the husband of Dina Roth Port, a women's health writer and author of Previvors. I'm very proud of my wife, a truly gifted talent. Her book about reducing one's risk of breast cancer has been helping women since 2010. We live in Boca Raton with our two awesome kids, two ridiculous dogs, and a catnip-addicted cat.

When not spending time working or with my family you can find me at Orangetheory, playing Ultimate Frisbee, reading, coaching little league, or volunteering for the Anti-Defamation League.

It takes a lot of guts to stick up for Facebook these days. Barely a week goes by when some new travesty the company committed bursts into the news cycle: Storing hundreds of millions of unencrypted passwords, providing unauthorized access to user data, or enabling discriminatory housing policies for example. For this reason, I have much respect for my friend Kevin O’Keefe’s defense of the social media platform regarding my own railings against
As someone who views the legal profession from an outside perspective, I can tell you that every once in a while I get wallopped with something happening in the industry that catches me by surprise.  Perhaps none was more shocking than reports of the Mad Men-esque, old-boys-club stories I’ve heard about sexism in the courtroom. A while ago I met with a Rocket Matter client firm in Chicago, consisting of a male partner and three…
It may sound quaint, but I am a huge proponent of reading books. I realize for a lot of people, picking up a book (or Kindle or Nook) doesn’t happen so naturally anymore. Even people that used to love to read can have trouble getting into a novel. In fact, if you have a nagging suspicion your attention span is not what it used to be, you’re not imagining things. In Nick Carr’s book The
They’ve arrived. Like a kid on Christmas, my excitement was uncontainable this morning when I walked into Rocket Matter HQ.  Sitting on my desk was a box of twenty or so pads of daily planners I had custom printed to my specifications. I pulled out one of the pads, which consist of twenty-five 8 1/2″ x 11″ color printed pages with a gummed strip at the top, closed my eyes, and pressed the fresh planner…
This month I celebrate seven months Facebook-free. I’m shocked by how I little I miss it.  In fact, I haven’t looked back. Turns out it was one of the most positive moves I made in all of 2018. I had been on the fence about whether to leave Facebook or not, but leaving seemed unimaginable:  How would I stay in touch with the people from all walks of life I reconnected with? Friends from elementary…
