A Pioneer in the Use of Electronic Discovery in Divorce Cases
As in all areas of life, electronic information has increasing relevance in the practice of family law. Drawing on experience in computer forensics that goes back to the 80's, attorney Conlon is one of a handful of lawyers who have published and presented seminars on the subject of electronically stored information as evidence in a divorce case. Mr. Conlon has frequently lectured on the topic of electronic discovery in divorce to the American Association for Justice, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and, most recently, to the Massachusetts Bar Association's family law section.
The legal team at our firm has handled a variety of cases involving computer forensics, data seizures and the detection of electronic surveillance or spyware by spouses. We have used electronic evidence in divorce litigation to document marital misconduct, such as a cheating spouse, and financial misconduct, such as cases involving hidden assets. We consult with attorneys both within Rhode Island and throughout the country on electronic evidence issues.

Using Technology to Keep Our Clients Informed
In the past, lawyers traditionally "copied" clients on incoming and outgoing documents throughout the course of case. Today, however, the carbon copy has gone the way of the dinosaur, but most firms still stuff envelopes and mail clients copies of the case papers throughout the litigation of their case.
Although you do need copies of your documents, the mail is slow and hard copies lead to a mountain of sensitive documentation. Litigation often involves reams of documents that are exchanged quickly and piles of paper are useless if not properly organized. This method is expensive, slow and inefficient. That is why our firm has decided to give our clients continuous, real-time access to their files.
We have established an online client portal that allows clients 24/7 access to case papers. When a motion comes into our office via mail or fax, it is scanned and filed in the ordinary course of business. However, our system also tells you when a new document has been received, and you are able to review it on your smartphone, tablet, computer or anywhere else you have an Internet-enabled device with Internet access.
Holding Clergy Accountable for Abuse: A Rhode Island Case of the Year
Attorney Conlon was one of three attorneys presented with the 2003 award for Case of the Year by the Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association. The award was presented to "acknowledge the efforts in connection with the Rhode Island clergy abuse cases." Mr. Conlon chaired the Plaintiffs' Counsel Committee and, in that capacity, effected the settlement of 37 cases on behalf of victims and their families. The settlements totaled $14.25 million and were negotiated with the assistance of the Commonwealth Mediation and Conciliation of Brockton, Massachusetts.
