Never fear, newly-laid-off-firm-lawyers-baffled-by-all-the-technology-decisions-facing-newly-minted-solos. The American Bar Association has just released The 2009 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide: Critical Decisions Made Simple. The guide addresses the options for computers, peripherals, software, support tools, services and other areas vital to modern practice. Reviews and product overviews, step-by-stp instructions on making tech decisions, analysis of operating systems and case management applications, billing systems and document management, tips for the wireless office and protection from security threats are all covered. The guide costs $84.95 for non-members and $54.95 for members of the ABA Law Practice Management Section.
Along with the very reasonable tuition to the soon-to-be-launched Solo Practice University, you too can be a cutting-edge lone legal wolf for not a lot of change.
