Answer . They certainly wouldn't admit to it so there is no way of getting proper statistics on this.
25 US presidents were lawyers or were admitted to the bar.before running for President.
25 of the 43 presidents, including the current President Obama, were members of the bar and qualified to practice as lawyers. Some of them, such as Jefferson, John Quincy Adam…s and Woodrow Wilson, had a very limited practice. (Obama is known as the 44th President, but only 43 people have been President. Cleveland is counted twice, as both the 22nd and 24 presidents.)
John Adams, Jefferson, John Q. Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, Tyler,Polk, Fillmore, Pierce, Buchanan, Lincoln, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur,Benjamin Harrison, Cleveland, McKinley, Taft…, Wilson, Coolidge,Franklin Roosevelt, Nixon, Ford, Clinton and Obama were alladmitted to the bar and so were licensed to practice law. However,Jefferson and Wilson did not practice law and John Q. Adams onlypracticed for a short time before he got into full time diplomaticand political work. In addition, Madison, Theodore Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson and HarryTruman took some law courses but did not take the bar exam.

To be honest, most lawyers use technology. The definition of technology is "Machinery and equipment developed from such scientific knowledge." So therefore a cellular phone is… technology. But in other terms, some lawyers such as myself use Microsoft Office to type up speeches, documents, etc., so yes i'd say most lawyers use technology.
