Woodard Attorney Featured in The Indiana Lawyer Article on Law Firm Apps

November 7, 2014

As a law student, Matthew Gardlik wanted to keep a copy of Black’s Law Dictionary nearby for quick reference, but he didn’t want to lug the massive tome from class to class. So he did what many smartphone and tablet users do: He found an app for that, downloaded it and always had the dictionary handy whenever he had a question.

Gardlik, now an associate at Woodard Emhardt Moriarty McNett & Henry LLP, is using the same idea to create the firm’s first app, which will have the current laws on intellectual property, like patents and trademarks, as well as the Code of Federal Regulations. See the full article published in The Indiana Lawyer here.
