Migrating from Rocket Matter -- how and to what?
First, hello everyone, I am a long time lurker, and first time poster, and hope I can contribute meaningfully to the discussions here.
Since starting my solo practice about seven months ago, I've used Rocket Matter. Simply put, RM does not do it f…
The Linux Law Practice Discussion Thread
In honor of the release of Ubuntu 13.10, which now graces my ThinkPad (and on which I am typing this), let's talk about practicing law using Linux.
I'm partial to Ubuntu, but I've also used Fedora and OpenSUSE for various periods of time. I used …

Do You Do DIY Letterhead?
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…
Monitors and Clients
From a reader:
Sam, Nice article on monitors. Do you have any experience or thoughts about having a monitor for clients across the desk from you? I am tired of pushing monitors around to give someone a view.
He's right. A monitor can…
Switching LPM Software
I rely heavily on Amicus Attorney. Long story short, I am considering a switch to Abacus. I have elected not to go the "cloud" based solutions. I am wondering if anyone has made the switch and whether it is worthwhile?
