Protect Your Future With Real Attorney Representation vs Legal AI

January 30, 2024

What is Legal AIIn Colorado's ever-evolving legal landscape, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has entered the courtroom, offering to draft contracts and estate plans with lightning speed and affordability. While AI's allure is undeniable, at Johnson Law Group, we believe your future deserves more than automation. Our team has been trained to apply critical thinking and creativity in problem-solving and to follow strict ethical and professional judgment to represent Coloradans best. Even with the impressive capabilities of Legal AI, there are still many things an attorney can do that are beyond the reach of current technology. Below is an explanation of what legal AI can be and some key areas where human lawyers continue to hold the edge.

What is legal AI

Legal AI, can refer to the application of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies within the legal field. It's all about using these powerful tools to automate tasks and enhance the work of legal professionals. Legal AI can involve:

AI Legal Technologies:

  • Machine learning: Algorithms trained on vast amounts of legal data to identify patterns, predict outcomes, and make informed decisions.
  • Natural language processing (NLP): Enables computers to understand and analyze legal text, extract key information, and generate documents.

AI in Legal Applications:

  • Document review and analysis: AI could quickly scan through contracts, legal filings, and other documents to identify relevant clauses, risks, and issues, but a real-life licensed Attorney holds the final call on the relevance and the application.
  • Legal research: AI queries can analyze case law and regulations to find relevant precedents and support legal arguments to supplement an Attorney's position on a case.
  • E-discovery: AI in digital documents can streamline the Attorney research process in identifying and collecting electronically stored information (ESI) for litigation but cannot replicate the persuasive power of our skilled attorney in the courtroom.
  • Contract drafting and negotiation: AI can generate boilerplate clauses, suggest edits, and predict potential legal risks in contracts but can not actually negotiate on behalf of a client.
  • Client service and legal advice: Chatbots and virtual assistants can filter questions and provide generic answers to basic legal questions, but only Attorneys can analyze a case properly and provide strategic work.

The AI Advantage: Speed and Accessibility

LexisNexis, one of the popular legal search services, has confirmed AI-powered search that allows Attorneys to ask for simple legal briefs, letters, and other written material with citations. Other AI platforms like ChatGPT can also automate document creation, potentially saving time and money. We recognize that their ability to digest legal data and generate templates is impressive. However, can AI truly understand the complexities of your individual life and Colorado's legal nuances? Like the Colorado Bar Association, we at Johnson Law Group understand the capabilities and limitations of generative AI and how it can sometimes help research data, but it can't replace the legal expertise and high-level interpretation of the legal language that our seasoned Attorneys bear.

Beyond the Template: Where AI Falls Short

Contracts and estate plans are not cookie-cutter documents. At Johnson Law Group we understand each life story is unique, with specific needs and state-specific legalities. AI, with its one-size-fits-all approach, can simplify legal documents and miss these crucial details, leaving gaps and vulnerabilities in your legal armor. One of the reasons our firm proudly offers same-day Attorney legal consultations is to prevent Coloradans from buying into a generic case law approach to their individual case. 

The Hidden Dangers of Machine Mistakes

It is known that AI accuracy hinges on the data it's fed. Outdated information, misinterpretations, or typos can weave dangerous errors into documents. Relying solely on AI, as some attorneys have learned the hard way. Any time you see this: (insert article link), it could be the case that the article was created with AI, and the reference link was mistakenly left in the text. This can lead to costly credibility legal challenges and jeopardize your future. At Johnson Law Group we take great pride in affirming that our team is all human and internal. From your initial contact with our intake team to the seasoned attorney overseeing your case, we will not rely on AI to make your case. 

Ethics and Accountability: Where AI Lacks a Pulse

The legal system demands ethical diligence and professional judgment. AI, however, operates in a black box, raising concerns about accountability and client confidentiality. At Johnson Law Group, we believe your legal matters deserve the transparency and human touch that AI cannot provide. We understand that AI can be a powerful tool that augments the work of our legal professionals but never replaces them.

The Irreplaceable Human Lawyer: Your Advocate and Guide

Experienced attorneys are not robots with legal databases. We bring critical thinking, empathy, and personalized advice to the table. We listen to your individual story to better understand your needs and navigate Colorado's legal intricacies to craft documents that safeguard your future. Artificial Intelligence can be a helpful tool, but it should never replace the human element in legal matters. When it comes to protecting your family, your assets, and your legacy, trust the personalized expertise of Johnson Law Group.
