Evidox Featured in Suffolk Law Alumni Magazine – “Bringing the Technology of Law Into Class”
February 27th, 2014
Dana Conneally JD ’11 is a partner not in a law firm but in Evidox, an e-discovery start-up housed in an old leather tannery near South Station in Boston. Although he worked in the litigation support group at Goodwin Procter for nearly seven years, he said he never wanted to work as a traditional lawyer. When he enrolled at Suffolk Law as an evening student, his eye was on the emerging tech businesses that provide legal consulting.
“I needed to be able to think and talk like an attorney to be able to think and work with them in the way that I wanted to,” Conneally said. “When you are working in the legal environment, it helps when you can talk in the same way, issue spot in the same way. You just see things differently as an attorney.”
Evidox has recently broken through the walls on the tannery’s second floor to gobble up another 3,000 square feet for its expanding business. Conneally works long hours and his smile is prideful as he presents $1 million worth of computer servers recently purchased and stacked in this climate-controlled space.
Perlman called Conneally “a perfect example” of the kind of spirit Suffolk Law’s new institute is trying to instill in law students.
