Who is Chad Burton?

Chad is a co-founder of Modern Law Practice, CEO of CuroLegal and a legal futurist. He has been actively engaged in building the future of legal services throughout his career via his work in building legal technology, creating ABA Blueprint, an AI driven interface to help attorneys select the best technology for their firms, and developing “new law” business models.

Within Modern Law Practice, Chad becomes a law firm owners’ BFF and is essentially on call as the ideas flow between the owners of firms and our chief operations officer.  Chad’s obsession with exploiting every feature of existing technology means an owner will never be under utilizing his or her resources. He is adept at lean operations management and outsourcing to all things virtual assistants.

He serves on the Governing Board for ABA’s Center for Innovation and the Board of Directors for the Global Legal Blockchain Consortium. Chad previously served on the ABA Law Practice Division’s Council and as Chair of the Division’s Futures Initiative. He regularly speaks around the country on topics related to legal technology, virtual law practice and the future of the legal profession.

Chad has been quoted and published in publications like the ABA Journal, Inc., the Atlantic, and Entrepreneur Magazine. Chad was named to the Fastcase 50 list of global legal innovators in 2014 and received an award by ALM for the Most Innovative Use of Technology for Firm in 2012.
