    I've been reviewing the great optimized websites for small firms that were posted on Lawyerist and it's evident I need to have my firm's site brought into this decade. Does anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably priced website designer? Thank…

    Keyboard Tips, Hacks, and Recommendations
    Microsoft Word and Exchange are a major source of frustration for me (and I think a lot of other lawyers). Even inserting common typographic symbols and setting up good formating can be difficult. I set up this discussion with the hope that we could…

    Document Management for solo estate planning/corporate practice
    I left a 15 attorney law firm about a year ago to start my own estate planning/corporate practice. One of the things I miss was the document management system on a server we had called Worldox. It gave me the ability to create different versions o…

    How many attorneys here print their letterhead on their inkjet/laser printer rather than have letterhead printed by a professional printer (offset, etc.)? If so, what issues have you run into re: formatting, etc.? What features would you want you…

    Lawyerist Site Redesign?
    I think one of the podcasts mentioned a redesign and Lawyerist looks a little different (maybe). There is a lot on here about web design detail, is lawyerist going to share what it changed and why? Also, checked the site on ios mobile and it looks…

    Are Inkjets Acceptable for Printing Legal Documents?
    I've never thought so, but Epson has been pushing its "laser-like" technologies for years. I guess the appeal is mainly cost? Here's a network-ready Epson color multifunction for $320. Compare that to this HP color LaserJet multifunction that I revi…

    Does anyone have any experience with third-party scanning vendors? My firm has a very high volume of incoming documents so I'm exploring whether it'd be more cost effective to use a third-party vendor for our routine scanning. In terms of workflo…

    PocketScan portable scanner
    I just heard about the PocketScan. Does anyone here use it? Any reviews? So far, the Scanner Pro app has been working for me for small scanning projects when I am out of the office but I've been looking for something better.
