Jeff Wyatt, ILTA Member and Chief Administrative Officer at McMahon Surovik Suttle, PC

"I love ILTA forums. The knowledge I have obtained has paid for my membership several times over. I read about things over my head, answer things I have experience with and ask specific questions about things important to my firm. Specifically, I have chosen a backup solution due to ILTA forum suggestions, changed User Rights for security, purchased a Large File Transfer solution also due to ILTA info. I have no doubt our firm has a much more secure environment because of what I have pulled from ILTA forums. Additionally, I believe I get a sense of what solutions are good values and save money from that knowledge."

What ILTAns Are Saying About Peer Power

Vanessa Lozzi

Vanessa Lozzi, ILTA Member and Senior Legal Technology and Litigation Support Administrator, Assistant Vice President, Flagstar Bank

"I originally became a member of ILTA when I worked for a law firm. Over 10 years ago when I switched to a job in a corporate legal department, I soon found my needs from this organization changed. The first ILTACON I attended as a corporate member I quickly found a new network of peers that have become invaluable to me over the course of my career. The corporate members were so welcoming and introduced me to the value I can get from my membership from the law department perspective. I enjoy participating in webinars, utilizing the Community of Interest, and of course ILTACON. ILTA also has a Corporate Legal page on its website with helpful resources and information. I think the main difference in this organization vs other professional associations is our membership goes beyond GC’s, attorneys, and Legal Operation professionals. I am most grateful for the meaningful personal connections I have made over the years."

George Chui

George Chui, ILTA Member and Director, Systems Development, Global Technology,  Prudential Financial

"Ever since joining ILTA 6 years ago, I’m amazed at the level of continual knowledge sharing and collaborations amongst the members. Members volunteer their time to plan awesome educational content (ILTACON, Virtual Sessions, Local Events, etc.) and are eager to help with questions posted on the Community eGroups. Personally, it’s the professional connections that come with working on educational sessions and volunteering together at events. Because of this external pool of resources that I can leverage, my contributions to my organization are that much more enriched!

"Volunteering with ILTA has been extremely rewarding, both personally and professionally. As a volunteer, I have received tremendous support and encouragement from ILTA’s leadership. I have also had the opportunity to meet other individuals in litigation support and eDiscovery around the world. The scope, breadth, and dedication of ILTA's volunteers are incredible. Volunteering is an excellent way to share thoughts and ideas with others who are equally as invested in making the community as collaborative and inclusive as possible.:
