As you might imagine, I get a lot of tips and leads to tech services and products - both legal and general. I try to tinker with as much as I can, but I can't touch everything. Of course I have my favorites, which I write about first-hand. But who I am to say that you should only do as I do? Not this girl! So here are a few tools for you to check out on your own. I don't use them myself, but you should see if they might fit into any holes you have.
A gentleman named Joe read our Technolawyer article about VoIP and wrote to tell me about a service he likes called JaJah Web-Activated Telephony. Interestingly, this service allows you to enter the number you want to call on their webpage, then it calls your phone and connects the call for you so you don't need any special hardware or phones.
A lady named Andrea Cannavina also read our TechnoLawyer column - she wrote me to point out a typo. And well she should have, as pointing out typo's is her specialty. If you're a solo or small firm and need some help around the virtual office, check out her services at LegalTypist, a full service legal secretarial outsourcing solution.
Along the same service lines, I know several people who use CyberSecretaries and love it.
Are you suffering from Too-Much-Email-Syndrome? If so and if you use Outlook, take a look at SpeedFiler, it helps you organize incoming email messages.
It's a small world out there and the legal tech world is even smaller. This past Saturday I was at a very cool art party in Winter Park where I ran into Buzz Bruggeman of ActiveWords, a tool designed to help automate your Windows needs.
