Nirvana has a great Web interface, and just launched its iPhone app (which works pretty well on the iPad while awaiting the iPad versi…
Ring Central - Scalability
I have read some comments on the Ring Central service. Another question I have after reading the threads is does the service scale-up easily to more users. I looked at this briefly and was concerned about the costs for more users and the need to b…

Harvest v Freshbooks v MyCase for Billin
Which of these do you like best for billing purposes? I'm started to do some more complex billing (used to do only very simple flat fee billing) and I'm trying to decide if I should move beyond the billing features of MyCase.

Calling Back People You Know You Won't Represent
I regularly get calls about landlord-tenant and debt collection matters, mostly because my consumer rights blog is still quite popular. Since I have a receptionist, I usually get a message telling me what the call is about, so I usually know when I …
Small "network" questions: I will be opening my solo office shortly, and am sharing offices with other lawyers and, for reasons hard to explain, would prefer connecting my two computers wirelessly to a single scanner (I have settled on the Scansnap…

"You Don't Have a Real Job"
This probably doesn't belong in this forum, but I didn't know where to put it. Please feel free to move to another.
How do you deal with a spouse who, for lack of a better term, doesn't respect your job? Here's what I mean by that:

Hi, I am an attorney in Texas and have a question about arbitration clauses and whether they are necessary in the retainer agreement. I am revising mine and considering removing it. Any thoughts?

Laptops will not recognize ScanSnap S1100 or S1300.
I am really impressed with the ScanSnap S1500 in the office, and got the S1100 to use while traveling. It worked with my older laptop. Despite hours of trying, though, I cannot get either of my new (standard Dell) laptops to recognize the S1100. …
