Welcome to episode 193 of the Grow Your Law Firm podcast, hosted by Ken Hardison. In this episode, Ken sits down with Eric Sanchez, law firm operations guru, entrepreneur, and technologist; to discuss law firm efficiency and technology.
Eric Sanchez has just about done it all within law firm operations and legal technology. A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Eric developed strong leadership skills and a solid work ethic that has fueled his success in the years to come.
For over two decades, he led one of the largest and most successful plaintiffs’ practices in the Southeast. He was the chief architect for many of the firm’s core systems. His greatest work was in In re Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation, which resulted in a settlement of $1.25 Billion dollars and maximum fee award of nearly $100 Million dollars. Eric’s unique approach to problem-solving, combined with his passion for technology, led him to design the intake and case management platform now marketed by legal technology company, GrowPath. Eric holds a M.A. in Public Policy and Administration from Northwestern University, a B.S. in Criminal Justice, and is a prolific inventor holding 25 technical patents raging from cybersecurity, database management, and email.
After exiting GrowPath, Eric is again focused on his passion: law firm operations. As the founder of Maestro Strategic Partners, he serves as its managing partner. In that capacity he offers consulting services ranging from strategic advisory, marketing, operations, and technology.
