Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Internet-Based Practice Management Solutions

Updated 1/7/09:  Regular readers of this blog know that I’m interested in technology and how it impacts law practice.  In keeping with that interest, I wrote an article for the January issue of the Texas Bar Journal entitled “Internet-Based Practice Management Solutions.”  The article discusses some “software as a service” alternatives to traditional practice-management software programs, particularly those geared toward solos and small firms.

I am proud of the article and think it will help inform scores of Texas lawyers about these new options.  I would be remiss, however, if I failed to mention an error in the print version that needs correcting.  The article notes that Rocket Matter, one of the service providers discussed, recently unveiled a new pricing structure, but gets the pricing wrong.  The correct information can be found here.

As the article concludes, technology helps level the playing field for solos and small firms and is changing the way we all practice law.  Here’s hoping this change is one for the better.
