    Document Generation
    I've been researching web-based document assembly / generation tools - preferably ones that can appear to the end-user that it is a seamless extension of our firm's website, but really don't see any (besides Contract Express, potentially, and some o…

    Iphone Call Logging App
    Good morning all,   Just switched from an Android phone to the Iphone 4s. On my Android I used to have an app that would log all my calls (incoming and outgoing) to my Google calendar. This would allow me to go back and edit the entry to keep note…

    Third-party document providers (ProDoc and the like)
    I'm having a look at products like ProDoc (http://www.prodoc.com/), a Westlaw branch that for 85 bucks a month provides you with all sort of document templates and keeps them updated. I've been using from time to time a similar service provided by …

    New Google Privacy Policy
    I attended a CLE last week that really got me thinking about the safety of client information in cloud based Software as a Service. The AL State Bar says as long as I'm confident in defending Google's policies, I have the green light to go cloud ba…

    Doxie Go with Eye-Fi
    tl;dr: Got it working, found it to be slow and clunky. Read more here. Doxie just sent me an Eye-Fi card so I could experience the awesomeness of wireless scanning to my iPad, smartphone, computer, or straight to Evernote. (You can buy this as a bu…

    Word Processing Software for Mac
    What do other Mac users have for word processing software and would you recommend it? I'm leaning strongly towards OpenOffice or Libre Office but I'm curious about Mac Pages. I don't do anything special - just letters, briefs and the occasional spre…

    Over-the-head headset?
    I use my cell phone as my office phone and often need / want to use it hands-free. The jawbone I have is ok, but every time I see a picture of a customer service representative on someone's website I think, "that's what I want." I'm looking for a gr…

    Rocket Matter adds document assembly
    Many LAB members have expressed a desire for document assembly in our various threads on practice management software. Like this one. I think RM must pay attention to the LAB, because today it announced a major software upgrade that adds document as…

    Experiences With 8x8 (Packet 8)?
    Hi! I have been jury-rigging a phone system with Google Voice but I have decided to move on to a real VOIP provider for business-class features such as an auto-attendant, call forwarding, extensions, and the like. I like Packet 8. However, I would l…

    Scansnap 1300 as primary scanner
    I'm looking at getting a scanner for office use, but since I am just starting out, I am trying to keep costs down. I'm not seeing any reason for getting a 1500 over a 1300, considering that I rarely see documents over 7 or 8 pages in my practice. …

    Is a Copier really needed?
    Just recently went through exhaustive process to purchase copier for my current office and I wonder does a law firm really need a copier?   Could I get by with an excellent scanner and a high end laser printer?   Of course I can ask this question …

    Cloud based practice management tool and cloud based document management system
    I hope this is the correct forum to ask this question. If I'm using Clio which is a practice management system which has a built in document management tool do I also need to use a web based document management system like worldox or netdocuments? …
