For the past two years I’ve opined on what’s coming down the pike for the future of web-based legal software applications. Feel free to check my accuracy for 2009 and 2010. All I know is, if you can’t sense the excitement and momentum of cloud technologies for the legal vertical, you might possibly be asleep. […]
Competition in the legal cloud computing space can be a great thing. The more options lawyers have, the more companies like ours need to continually improve our software, support and other content and services in order to earn (and keep) your business. In many ways, the more we compete the better it is for you. […]
I’m pleased to announce an initiative that has literally been years in the making, from initial conversations between Jack Newton of Clio, Steph Kimbro of VLO Tech (now Total Attorneys) many moons ago.

When Rocket Matter first appeared on the legal technology scene (I prefer the term ‘dance floor’), we emerged as the first legal specific online practice management software on the market. Almost simultaneously, we were joined by other worthy competitors (and some not so worthy – Hi Kathy!). In the two and a half years since […]
I’m encouraged that New York and North Carolina are developing rational, well-measured opinions on legal cloud computing that protect the interest of attorneys and establish a level of reliability for the vendors themselves. However, the ABA’s recent suggestions that cloud providers are essentially outsourced providers requiring oversight seems a little impractical to me. The point of cloud computing for lawyers is to make life easier and eliminate headaches.
A danger lurks, threatening us all. It’s known as the “butt call”, or a call accidentally triggered by someone sitting on their cell phone or otherwise activating the speed dial with one’s anatomy that is, shall we say, not one’s finger.
