Leigh Newman was quoted in an article, "How Women Attorneys Are Smartly Leveraging Legal Technology to Advance Their Law Practices," in Legal IT Today. The article discusses how women in the legal profession are using technology "to assertively enhance their efficiency and business development and to differentiate themselves from competitors." Newman, a partner in Day Pitney's Individual Clients department and a former computer programmer, told Legal IT Today that her technology background has provided unique opportunities she would not have had otherwise. "Technology knowledge is a plus for any attorney, and bringing value to an organization is never a bad thing," she said. The article discusses how Newman has been instrumental in developing Day Pitney's dynamic use of HotDocs document assembly software. "When I first started at Day Pitney, we had a document assembly system that our admin and support people used, but the drafters—mostly associates—were removed from the process," Newman told Legal IT Today. "The firm's implementation of HotDocs allows for a high degree of customization of the documents produced and it is simple enough for lawyers to use themselves," she continued. "Now, 75% of document drafting is done by associates rather than support staff. HotDocs creates more uniformity and helps with quality control, providing a framework that brings strength, power, efficiency and fun to drafting estate documents."
