    Case timelines
    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…

    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…

    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?

    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…

    Clio/Xero integration
    Hi there, 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…

    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.
