Does anyone have recommendations for a slick way to capture timelines of case facts in complex cases? I've seen references to apps, downloadable forms formatted for use with off-the-shelf software like MS Office programs, and software (SASS) suggest…
We want to implement a scheduling system on our website and I was wondering what was the best scheduling app out there ? I tried calendly a while ago and found it pretty nice but maybe there are others out there ? What are your experien…
Disabling Time Matters add-ins for Word
I am having a problem with the bibliography feature in Word 2007. I have pretty much narrowed the problem down to a Time Matters add-in. That add-in is the only one running and when I run Word in safe mode, the problem goes away.
Does anyone know…
Any feedback on Topform?
We're planning on adding bankruptcy to our practice and looking at form and filing software. Does anyone have any thoughts on Topform from Fastcase?
Or any good alternatives?
DropBox--copy or move?
What am I doing wrong with DropBox? I want a service that will simply scan my HD w/o my prompting, back up everything as copies, and store it in some cloud that never darkens my horizon until I need it. But when I started my account and began usin…
adobe reader for trial?
I was in court and saw an attorney with a large iPad (about 13"). It was a busy calendar and I did not get a chance to ask what software he was using. It looked as if he had all of his files in pdf, similar to adobe thumbnails. Only the thumbnails w…
Are Inkjets Acceptable for Printing Legal Documents?
I've never thought so, but Epson has been pushing its "laser-like" technologies for years. I guess the appeal is mainly cost? Here's a network-ready Epson color multifunction for $320. Compare that to this HP color LaserJet multifunction that I revi…
Clio, Wave, Xero and Freshbooks
We started a 3-attorney firm in mid-January. We use Clio mostly for billing purposes. I like the task feature and integration with Google Apps, but my partners don't use Clio much beyond billing.
We're concerned with the amount of time we're spen…
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…
Jury selection app
I would appreciate it if anyone could recommend a jury selection iPad app. Thanks in advance for your help.
For those of you who use Clio and Xero, I need to know what you think:
Our firm constantly bills on two currencies ( CAD and USD) and we found out that Clio and Xero integration was not good for that. If we create a bill in Clio we hav…
Website Optimization and Reference
I've been reviewing the great optimized websites for small firms that were posted on Lawyerist and it's evident I need to have my firm's site brought into this decade. Does anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably priced website designer? Thank…
Amicus Price Jump Causing Switch
Three years ago we switched from Timematters/Billingmatters to Amicus Premium w Billing. We were longtime TM users (from ver. 2) but grew frustrated with dropped sync with outlook and tech support response as I recall, which caused the switch. It …
A Lawyer at CES 2017
I recently came back from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Besides being bone tired, a little dizzy from all the educational sessions and new product reveals and having caught the famed CES cold that everyone reportedly gets, there are a …
Encryption for Google Drive
Hi there !
I'm sure this has been discussed at some point but our firm needs an encryption solution for Google drive. What are your recommendations ?
PocketScan portable scanner
I just heard about the PocketScan. Does anyone here use it? Any reviews? So far, the Scanner Pro app has been working for me for small scanning projects when I am out of the office but I've been looking for something better.
Any Comments on ActionStep? (Time Matters Refugee)
I'm looking to switch to a cloud-based practice management system for a two-attorney general practice firm. I'm coming from about ten years on Time Matters, which I'm not unsatisfied with, but I am trying not to be chained to my desk anymore to get…
