Technology is designed to make your life easier, and there are different gizmos and gadgets for every type of professional. As an attorney, you need to maximize your time in order to offer the best for your clients. One of the most highly recommended styluses for attorneys is the Griffin No. 2 Pencil Stylus, which looks like a regular pencil but boasts impressive responsiveness. At this year’s ABA Techshow, mobile law practice was a hot topic and the presenters dished out the best recommendations for lawyers on the go.
Jeff Richardson and Ben Stevens presented “iGadgets and iGear for Lawyers,” and it’s no surprise that the digital presentation has been going viral in law circles. If you’re in the market for a speaker system, the dockBoss Air was presented as one of the best, designed for Apple and offering wireless capabilities. Plus, with a price tag under $35, it’s affordable for even startup lawyers. While every great attorney deserves quality technology, that doesn’t mean it has to come with a high price tag.
Teching it out
Waterproofing tablets is increasingly important as mobile readiness is no longer the future, but squarely here. The DryCase cover was the best in the presentation, at just under $60 and featuring intense flexibility. It’s clear and very effective, and it also lends an air of professionalism (much needed in the courtroom). To really make the most of tablets, check out the highly recommended StabilePro stand, which holds tablets steady at a customized eye level allowing for easy note reading and communicating with clients in court.
However, lawyers shouldn’t go anywhere without Monster Outlets on the Go. It’s compact and makes it simple to organize and charge devices no matter where you are. Take advantage of USB ports as well as outlets for under $20. Paramount for those long sessions in court, it’s technically great for anyone on the go but really made a great impression with attorneys in attendance.
For lawyers, drafting studies, summaries and case notes is par for the course. If your keyboard isn’t giving you the kind of results you want, try out the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard with iPad cover. It’s incredibly thin and is part keyboard, part cover. It retails for just below $100 and impressed attorneys in attendance with its light weight quality as well as ease of use. As an added bonus, it’s also quiet unlike many standard keyboards, ensuring you won’t be bothering your partners in the next meeting.
No matter what kind of law you practice, your tools need to be working at maximum capacity for you. Otherwise, you won’t be giving 100 percent to any of your cases, partners or clients. Your firm deserves the best, and so do you.
