Company: PracticePanther
Founded: 2012

What inspired you to start your company?

My wife is an attorney, she was using a competitor product back then (she’s a loyal PracticePanther fan now), and kept complaining how it was not user friendly. I did some research and was amazed to see the sad state of the legal practice management software space and decided we can do it better!

What is your company mission?

To make the lives of lawyers and paralegals easier around the world so they can spend less time managing and more time making money.

What has been your proudest moment as a Founder?

Six months after we launched PracticePanther, sales skyrocketed. It was the first significant vote of confidence from attorneys for our product and vision. It made me finally realize that we had reached a perfect product market fit.

What has been your most challenging moment as a Founder?

I had too many challenging moments so it’s hard to point out a specific one. The outcome of these moments—the stress, the sleepless nights and the time spent away from my family and loved ones—was the most challenging.
