Great Resource For iPhone Users

Friday, May 29th, 2009

I am still using a Blackberry, but I have to admit the iPhone looks like a lot more fun.  There has been a lot of buzz about lawyers using the iPhone more easily now in conjunction with their law practices.  There are dozens of sites out there that promote iPhones in the day to day […]

Another great Website

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Yesterday’s blog was about where to meet if you are meeting someone who lives far away.  Today’s website is all about finding a great restaurant, bar or store right in your own backyard.  I don’t know if you are like me, but choosing a restaurant is always a struggle.  We always seem to go to […]

Have you ever had a hard time figuring out where to meet a client, referral attorney or physician when they are not right in your neighborhood?  How about friends who live far away?  We have a lot of friends in Ann Arbor and sometimes we want to meet at a convenient location for all without driving […]

Call Your Client Before Putting That Letter in the Mail

Friday, May 15th, 2009

My secretary is now calling each client before she sends them a letter.  We send our clients copies of complaints, interrogatories, letters regarding depositions, letters regarding settlement conferences and more.  I am sure you do the same.  My secretary told me yesterday that over 80% of our clients have email and are willing to receive […]

Another Great Tool to Help in the Paperless Game

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

We are now sending all arbitration summaries and facilitation summaries via email.  I had a secretary yesterday print out 4 copies and Federal Express them on a Arbitration.  I couldn’t believe it!  The money, time, energy, paper and postage lost were incredible.  It is very easy to scan the summaries and email them to the […]

Have you tried a VA (Virtual Assistant)?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Lately I have been hearing about VA’s.  With 37 employees, I personally have not tried one, but I think it is a great idea.  LegalTypist, Inc. and Fortier Business Solutions are two that look interesting.  Digital dictation, which everyone should have by now, easily is sent to these companies for typing.  It sounds like a […]

60 Sites in 60 Minutes

Monday, May 11th, 2009

One of the best segments of the ABA Techshow was the 60 Sites in 60 Minutes.  The room was packed.  The presenters not only talked about the sites, but they pulled them up on the big screen and walked us through them.  They told us and showed us why they liked these sites.  Some will […]

Not Much Creativity at Case Evaluation Yesterday

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I sat as a case evaluator yesterday in Wayne County.  We had dozens of summaries to read the night before.  I am always looking for people who present their case in a new and interesting way.  I sit as a case evaluator to learn how to better present cases, how to better present summaries and […]
