About Esquire

Esquire Consultant Group, Ltd. exists solely to help law firms work smarter - not harder. We were founded in 1995 by an attorney with extensive computer experience. This dual-expertise enables us to not only solve technological issues, but to understand the specific needs of the legal community. We recognize that legal technology, just like the law itself, is constantly evolving.  At Esquire, we speak your language, the language of business. We strive to create a lasting relationship built on trust and strengthened by communication. We listen and we understand.


Communication is the key to any successful relationship. There is a communication breakdown if both sides do not speak the same language. A good legal consultant must know the intricacies of the legal industry and be able to explain technology in understandable terms.


Choosing the right software is only half of the equation - finding the right consultants is crucial in making sure you get the most out of your investment. Our job is to develop a system to allow the software to meet the individual needs of your firm. Proper planning, detailed implementation, comprehensive training and prompt follow-up support are essential in a successful software project.


There are many companies that "know computers" and there are many firms that "know the practice of law," but there are a rare few that know both equally well and have the knowledge and experience necessary to properly bring them together to help make an organization operate more efficiently and profitable. With five attorneys on staff we know the unique issues law firms face on a daily bases and are able to ask you the right questions to help tailor a system to meet your needs. Your clients place their trust in you and we ask that you place your trust in us to help your firm with all of your technology needs.
