Technology is a key part of a new solo's tool-kit

Jim Calloway recently wrote an article in the Oklahoma Law Journal discussing the "Seven Deadly Sins" facing new attorneys who go out on their own.

Unsurprisingly, one of his points is a failure to focus on technology.

Young attorneys often have an inane advantage over their more experienced, but often less technological savvy brethren; having grown up with technology, they tend to be more familiar with its use and comfortable with how it can improve one's life.

Legal practice is no different.  Legal software, particularly, billing and time-keeping software, can streamline the admittedly burdensome practice (and, despite advances in alternative billing arrangements, a still necessary one) of keeping track of time on a minute-by-minute basis.

Online Legal Software allows attorneys to create billing entries from contemporaneous time records.  These contemporaneous records themselves ensure time is properly recorded, properly accounted, and properly billed; painlessly and accurately.

Starting smart is the key to starting right.  We can help you start smart.
