SpiderOak v. Dropbox
google calendar synch
Hi- I had google calendar synching like a charm to my outlook calendar (from which it then synched my calendar in clio). However, I beefed up the security for my gmail account to add the multifactor verification so I (hopefully) won't get hacked. No…
Real Time Communications with Employee in Remote Location
Is there a convenient way to "chat" on the computer with an employee who is working at a remote location. I'm thinking of something that is the computer equivalent of phone texting. I find email to be burdensome to use for this and I'm looking for…
Wave Accounting Software
Has anyone tried it? http://waveaccounting.com/features/
They have a free trial but I'm not that experienced with financial stuff so I was hoping that someone with more experience could offer input about it.
Fastcase - love it or hate it? How does it match-up against West and Lexis? Thanks.
It appears that my printer has died. Has anyone purchased a printer in the last few months? Any strong feelings (positive or negative) about the printer you purchased?
I'm replacing a printer/copier/scanner, but have since added a ScanSnap, so I …
Cases for your technology
I am specifically looking for recommendations for a Macbook Air (11 inch) case. But I was also generally interested in what people use to tote their computers and legal "stuff" to Court and client meetings?
Efax v. Green Fax
I am looking into making the transition to a paperless practice, and I was thinking of integrating a fax-to-e-mail service such as Efax and Green Fax. Has anyone had any experience using either or both services? Any recommendations?
Anyone have a policy regarding clients just dropping in?
I have several clients who think since it's just me in my office, they can pop in anytime they want. I have not yet told anyone I can't meet with them when they do that, but I think I'm about…
Fresbhooks to Rocketmatter
Does anyone know if Freshbooks data can be ported into Rocketmatter. Want to use Rocketmatter but don't want two sets of time.
PC v. Apple Software and hardware issues?
After spending top dollar for several PCs recently, only to have them fail miserably in different ways (though the jumping cursor touchpad issue on the laptops is really in the forefront), I wonder whether two lawyers who have used PCs for 20 years …
TheFormTool Pro v. HotDocs
I've been playing around with these and wanted to start a thread to discuss these two products. There is a huge price differential between them, so it would be nice to know if TheFormTool Pro is sufficient to meet the needs of attorneys in solo prac…
Software to create multiple versions of Word documents?
I just left biglaw to start a small law firm and am trying to get the various software I need for transactional practice. At my prior firm we were able to create multiple versions of the same file. As a transactional attorney, that is ver…
Best place to advertise associate position?
I need to find an associate and would prefer someone with at least some experience. I know the law schools here in NC all use the Simplicity system, but I would prefer to not have to wait until Bar results get released for a brand spanking new attor…
What is IMAP support and do I need it?
I see that my go daddy email offers an IMAP support option to "Access and manage your email at home, at the office, on your smartphone or all three."
What does this mean exactly and would it be useful for me? I have a laptop (with Outlook), an iP…
Sam just posted about 2 security issues involving Linked-In.
My question is--should we feel confident that this won't happen with our Cloud case management providers?
Under what circumstances is it necessary to keep paper files?
As I'm considering starting my law practice, I was wondering whether or not there are any types of documents that should be kept in their original form, rather than scanned and shredded. I'm considering taking some family law cases, which would inc…
