March Sponsor: Clio

This month you’ll notice a change on the site, particularly when you’re looking at the advertising. I’m pleased to announce that Clio has agreed to sponsor The Droid Lawyer for the month of March, and I’m happy to recommend the product. When I was a lawyer Padawan, I got hooked on Clio as a viable and reliableContinue Reading

Google Apps Vault

Today, Google announced the availability of Google Apps Vault to all Google Apps customers. According to Google, “Google Apps Vault helps protect organizations of all sizes from lawsuits by enabling organizations to find and preserve email messages that may be relevant to a particular lawsuit. That saves time, effort, and costs associated with responding to litigation orContinue Reading

Congratulations iPhone J.D.

Although iPhone J.D., Jeff Richardson, espouses the technology I consider all things evil, I do enjoy hearing how an inferior system functions. In fact, when Jeff first started blogging, I may have owned an Apple product and advocated its use. Today, Jeff marks 4 years of blogging under his assumed alias. As anyone knows who actually blogs onContinue Reading

Poll: Who’s More Apt to Adopt Technology?

Recently, I had a debate with a colleague about technology adoption by lawyers. Specifically, the conversation revolved around smartphones and tablets, and we both concluded that solo or small firm lawyers tended to have greater adoption, and use, of mobile products. The reason: restrictions or limits on technology in bigger firms. That’s not to sayContinue Reading

Poll: What Android App Would You Like to See?

Lawyers are always commenting to me about how they wish there were more attorney-specific apps. By that statement I presume they mean more apps like iJuror or Trial Pad for iPad. So, that got me thinking. Although I argue that it’s not that important (see the comments) to have those kind of lawyer-specific apps, ifContinue Reading

The Droid Lawyer Vacation: Day 5

I finally finished, or should I say nearly finished, the response brief I’ve been working on. Aside from some minor use of a laptop to create a PDF, I created the entire brief using my Android tablet, sans bluetooth keyboard no less. The thing I learned is that tablets are not for big projects. WhileContinue Reading

How to: Change Your Email Signature in Android

Admit it, you’re one of those people who are committing the great sin of email signature laziness. I know who you are because I get an email from you with the post-script, “Sent from my                                          phone.” Having anContinue Reading

How Google Might Change the Office Magazine

There isn’t a dentist, doctor, or lawyer’s office that doesn’t have a smattering of old magazines cluttering up the waiting area. Okay, for you literalists, I’m sure there’s an office somewhere devoid of magazines, but I can’t think of any. The truth is, magazines are an important way for us “important” people to tell our “less-than-important”Continue Reading

Android Lawyer App Review: WestlawNext

I’m pretty sure those of us who graduated law school in the age of technology, injected ourselves with the Westlaw and LexisNexis “crack” in our law school experience. If you didn’t, you’re too old to remember digitized legal research (cue the “I walked 10 miles” comments), or you’re probably like one of my curmudgeon teachers whoContinue Reading
