It was a busy week for eDiscovery in Florida. After our ACEDS Jacksonville events on Tuesday, the group took a #ACEDSRoadTrip to Gainesville for the #UFEDISCO19 Conference on Thursday. Thanks for William “Bill” Hamilton, Maribel Rivera and George Socha for your thoughtful planning, preparation and hard work bringing this enriching legal technology education to the at large legal community in Florida and across the globe with the live stream — while also exposing the resources and talent available through the eDiscovery industry. It was wonderful to participate, see colleagues, and learn from the practice leaders you bring together each year for this exceptional event. Good to see you all and we look forward to next year!
