Handy legal technologies

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

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

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.
