The Story of Optiable:

Disaster Brings Freedom

In 2005, Katrina slammed into Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf Coast, destroying homes and businesses on a massive scale. I was three years into helping attorneys and law firms use technology to improve their businesses. After Katrina, dozens of these firms came to me seeking help to rebuild their firms from the ground up.

This experience changed my perspective on what’s possible for firms when they embrace the advantages technology can give them.

In many cases, losing everything freed these lawyers to rethink how they wanted their firms to look once we completed rebuilding.

  • They were free to build the firm how they wanted.
  • They weren’t tied down to old structures and traditions.
  • They embraced technology based on how it would create an efficient, flexible firm, not how it would fit into the old way of doing things.
  • They were no longer tied to a physical office. Both attorneys and staff were able to work remotely without sacrificing efficiency or security.

The funny thing is, many of these professionals resisted technology before the storm… 

After losing everything, they built firms that took advantage of everything technology could do for them, often making their firms better than they were before Katrina hit.

Then in 2020, those same law firms experienced something completely unexpected. 

Covid-19 forced nearly every law firm to operate remotely. Most firms were caught entirely off guard. 

The firms in New Orleans who had been through Katrina and lost everything that had already adapted their operations didn’t miss a beat. Social distancing and gathering restrictions had no impact on the operation. 

When Covid hit, many people reached out to get help in the transition to working from home. But not the clients I had helped after Katrina. I didn’t hear a word from them. 

Well, not true... Some of them did reach out to say, “Thank you.” Because they had already made the transition, they felt little or no disruption in productivity from Covid. While other firms were playing catch up, they were already getting ahead. 

Who knew the devastation of Katrina in 2005 would put law firms in the path of the storm in the perfect position to weather a new type of storm brought on by a virus. 

It used to seem like a stretch to be able to work from home or anywhere outside the office. Now, not only is safe, remote work possible, it has become necessary.

“If you’ve ever thought, ‘that will never work here,’ you’ve got to talk with Craig Bayer. Craig and his team at Optiable helped us transition to cloud-based data management system. Now, we don’t have to be at the office every day and didn’t sacrifice efficiency or productivity to make it happen.”

New Orleans Accident Attorney

“Before talking with Craig, I thought only a large law firm could work with a sophisticated data-management system. Now, I know a mid size law firm like mine can have all the advantages of a big law firm. Working with Craig allowed us to find the perfect solution and make the transition to working from the cloud easier than I could have imagined.”

Brian Murphy


“Working with Craig Bayer was wonderful. He seems to know everything about the technical side of data management. And he was relentless to make sure he found the right solution for us. If you want to make the switch to the cloud but don’t know where to begin, you want to work with Craig and Optiable.”
