Law Firm: 5 Mistakes

Software, hardware, shareware. It’s getting so attorneys can’t even keep up. When you
survey the current law office options—and those on the horizon—our collective head
This month, as we often do in the fall, our authors examine a few of the tools that
may lighten the burdens of your law practice management.
Just a few years ago, attorneys wondered whether they should dip into the world
of cloud services—at all. But that question has evolved for most to wonder how
deeply they should be in the ether. One of our authors, Andres Hernandez, offers
his assessment of some tools you should examine now—if not sooner.
And then we take a closer look at a longtime law office standby: QuickBooks.
As our author Susan Traylor notes, many small firms and solos swear by the software, despite the fact that it is generic accounting software rather than one tailored
to law practice. But rather than wag a finger, Susan lends a hand. She takes up five
beliefs that attorneys tend to have about QuickBooks and then examines how close
to the truth each is. The advice she offers may help you run a better and more error-free practice.
