The Legal Connection Ezine February 2012

February’s theme is love.

I ? tech just as much as the next person – but my contribution this month is not about a tech – it’s about a tech show!

February is always the annual LegalTech NY wrap up. I do ? to meet other legal and geeky people and see what’s new in the legal tech realm and this year was no different. See my wrap up of #LTNY on page 2.

Business coach Barbara Nelson – who is definitely NOT a techie, contributed another stellar article this month – as always putting her own little spin on the theme. See page 3, for Barbara musing about taking the tech out of the love you show clients and contacts.

On page 4, Bruce M. Cameron, The Rural Lawyer, contributed an article, that literally made me LOL more than once. You HAVE to read it.

Page 5 gives us a solid tech recommendation from our Mac loving attorney, Joe Bahgat and legal practice pro Allison Shields follows with two web based techs she absolutely adores.

Next up is some practical advice on answering the phone by Ruby Receptionists own Katie Wilson.

We wrap up this issue - sadly not with Steve ODing (he was busy being – you know, being an attorney!); instead we have Solosezzer Ben – I’m not an attorney – Schorr helping us understand Cable vs DSL and why we may want to double up our love of connections to the Internet if we’re in business.

I couldn’t let an issue about tech and love go out without a big ? to the tech used at LegalTypist and by our clients:

The System (powered by Sten Tel); Clio; Dictamus; NetDocuments; MyCaseInc; ProLaw; NitroPDFPro; Dropbox; SnagIt; Evernote; Outlook.

AND I can’t just send out ? to the tech - LegalTypist would not be successful without the people – the Digital Assistants who process the day to day dictations, documents and delegations of the clients of LegalTypist.

Much ??? to Tracy S, Operations Manager of LegalTypist – for keeping it all running as it is supposed to; to long standing Digital Assistants Susan, Elaine, Cynthia, Kerri P. and the rest of the DA gang getting the work done; and to Delilah, Pamela, and Kris for putting up with me and some of the odd-ball requests that I get outside of the scope of services offered through LegalTypist.

I wish you and yours a chocolate filled month <why limit it to one day!!?!

til next month…

Andrea
