    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.

    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?

    Drop-Ins
    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…

    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…

    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…
