Changes in Law Over the Years

As we enter into a new year and a new decade, the legal profession has drastically changed from Cislo & Thomas’ start in 1979 to today.

Over the last 40 years, sending letters has transitioned from snail mail to e-mail, urgent communication turned from faxes to text messages, and electric typewriters are nonexistent. The use of technology in the legal field has altered dramatically, as law books were replaced by online sources and document creation became automated. As Cislo & Thomas continues to provide Quality Client Care for businesses and institutions, we look into the future of how technology is changing and how that impacts the legal practice.

Over the next 40 years, how will the development of technology change law? Will MRI brain scanners recognize dishonesty, thus changing veracity of testimony or the art of negotiation? Will there be collective neuro-networks of like minds, sharing ideas and support via exclusive memberships? In the patent world, will there be configuration software that invents and develops prototypes based on identified problems and claims?

While we are not yet clear about what the future of technology holds, Cislo & Thomas will continue to stay on the cusp of legal developments in order to provide the best work to our clients.
