Practical Applications in South Carolina

Handy legal technologies

Published in 2016 South Carolina Super Lawyers magazine

Skype

Available on iOS, Android, Windows, Kindle and web devices
FREE

I’ve been using Skype to have virtual in-person consultations with clients who can’t travel to see me. I was nervous about it at first, but it has worked extremely well. It allows me to have a personalized interaction with them that you just can’t achieve by phone or email alone. I’ve also started to be more active on Twitter. I have made some great connections locally and nationally that have translated into direct business for my firm.

PCLaw

As both a practicing attorney and practice manager, efficiency is paramount. PCLaw’s platform turns time entries into invoices, and its billing options make it easy to export, upload and manage electronic bills. I can quickly generate detailed reports to manage and assess firm productivity, and they offer great customer support. The knowledgeable technical support team is always a call away to answer questions, and PCLaw experts provide regular Feature Friday Webinars to keep customers up to date on everything from monthly close-out checklists to bank reconciliation confirmations.

Duolingo

Duolingo is the technology that helps me most in my immigration practice … [by]enhancing my Spanish-language skills from my iPhone. I use it daily and have noticed a dramatic improvement in my ability to understand and speak Spanish, which allows me to effectively interact with my Spanish-speaking clients.
