Google Glass Revolutionizes Practice of Law

Pilot program, "Glass Action," creates new evidentiary perspective (April 02, 2014)

PHOENIX, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Fennemore Craig, a leading Mountain West regional law firm, is changing the way lawyers interact with clients by lending them Google Glass. With the use of Google Glass, firsthand, live-action experiences are shared in real time between clients and Fennemore Craig attorneys, creating new mechanisms to convey evidence to juries, judges and mediators.

"Glass Action" is a pilot program recently launched by Fennemore Craig personal injury attorneys Marc Lamber (left) and James Goodnow (right) who equipped several clients, including double-amputee Gary Verrazono with Google Glass, not currently available to the public. Now, he can stream his life as it unfolds, send a text or email, record video, teleconference with his attorneys and photograph, exchange and distribute legal documents - all with a simple voice command or blink of an eye.

The pilot program, called "Glass Action," was launched in January 2014 when Fennemore Craig personal injury attorneys James Goodnow and Marc Lamber equipped several business and personal injury clients with the new Google Glass technology, not currently available to the public.

Double-amputee Gary Verrazono is one of those clients and has been using the firm-provided Glass for three months. Verrazono lost his right arm and leg in a tragic accident in 2012 while working at a racetrack. Glass is a game changer for Verrazono. He can stream his life as it unfolds, send a text or email, record video, teleconference with his attorneys and photograph, exchange and distribute legal documents all with a simple voice command or blink of an eye.

"It's the experience of the client unfiltered," says Goodnow. "Jurors will now be able to see the nuances of a victim's daily challenges firsthand."

Lamber adds, "This technology gets us the information instantly, lightening the burden on the client and allowing for more frequent communication. Knowing more about our clients helps us build the strongest case possible."

"Glass Action" comes on the heels of the firm's innovative use of the Apple iPad, which Apple profiled in a case study.

Lamber believes that Fennemore Craig has just scratched the surface of what Google Glass can do for its practice. The firm is now testing the technology with expert witnesses and in mock trials. "We can put Google Glass on jurors during trial simulations to see what's catching their attention," says Lamber.

Goodnow and Lamber have been widely recognized by the media for their use of technology. The ABA Journal named the attorneys to its list of "America's Techiest Lawyers."

Fennemore Craig is a full-service law firm with nearly 200 attorneys and offices in Phoenix, Tucson, Nogales, Las Vegas, Denver and Reno.
