    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…

    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…

    Document Management for solo estate planning/corporate practice
    I left a 15 attorney law firm about a year ago to start my own estate planning/corporate practice. One of the things I miss was the document management system on a server we had called Worldox. It gave me the ability to create different versions o…

    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.

    Phone system
    Is there a way to have 2 offices use the same phone number and system. For instance if I have a satellite office can my receptionist at either office answer the phone and then transfer it to the other office?
