Clients aren’t spending less on legal fees. They are spending more carefully. Viewabill shows your clients that you are careful, attentive and efficient. With access to pre-bill information, your clients focus on your work. Not the invoice.

Legal services are not changing; customer service is.

With Viewabill, keeping clients informed and up-to-date during the billing cycle minimizes write offs. It also speeds up collection times by eliminating the post-invoice back-and-forth. And since your attorneys know their clients may review work-in-progress entries, time entries are entered routinely and accurately.

A little transparency goes a long way. In the “New Normal”, client service will be the difference.

Google Adds User Account Menu to Chrome Canary-TNW Blog

Logo used from the start of the Chrome project until March 2011 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Google Chrome has supported multiple user accounts for years now, but the options to add and manage them have been buried in the browser’s settings. In fact, if you actually navigate to the proper section (Hit the menu button, choose Settings, and scroll down to “Users”) and add a few users, you can’t actually switch between them from there.

Google is toying with a complete revamp of the user account system in its browser, clearly borrowing a lot from Chrome OS.

Lawyers Won’t Lose Clients to DIY Legal Services=Lawyerist

Sam Glover:

Currently, consumers can pick from a range of options for do-it-yourself legal services. You can get a divorce at OfficeMax, a will from Amazon, and dissolve a partnership with LegalZoom. Those are just a few examples, of course. There are hundreds of DIY legal documents available online and offline.

People who want to do their own legal work are, naturally, not likely to hire a lawyer in the first place. And people who hire lawyers do not want to do their own legal work.

Read Sam’s entire piece and find out why he thinks “…now is not the time to panic…”.

Google Docs Now Converts Word’s Tracked Changes To Suggested Edits–Ubergizmo

Google is hoping to lure more users of Microsoft Word onto their platform. They have recently made some changes to Google Docs that will basically convert Word’s tracked changes into Suggested Edits.

***

While you no longer have to convert Microsoft Word files to Docs (thanks to the recent Quickoffice integrations), if you do, any tracked changes in a .docx file will be automatically carried over to Docs as Suggested Edits. Once you’ve imported your changes, you can begin immediately collaborating with your colleagues in real-time.

How-to: Use Spotlight and Smart Folders to search for anything on your Mac | 9to5Mac

 

In OS X, Spotlight is an effective way to search your entire hard drive for a file or folder, email, or any other file. There are many other things Spotlight can do, and searching for files is just one of them. Spotlight is also capable of looking up dictionary definitions, launching apps, performing calculations, previewing audio, video, documents, and other files. This article will outline some of the benefits of using Spotlight and how to use Smart Folders, which allow you to search for a file even if you don’t know its name.

Ravel Law

 

Ravel Law is a new legal search, analytics, and visualization platform. Ravel enables lawyers to find, contextualize, and interpret information that turns legal data into legal insights. Ravel’s array of powerful tools – which include data-driven, interactive visualizations and analytics – transforms how lawyers understand the law and prepare for litigation. In today’s global and increasingly digital world, Ravel empowers attorneys to benefit from this huge influx of information and find value in it.

In 2012, Ravel spun out of Stanford University‘s Law School, Computer Science Department, and d.school, with the support of CodeX (Stanford’s Center for Legal Informatics).

US Supreme Court and Federal Circuit Decisions are free for login and email access (Linkedin and Google).  District Court and State Jurisdictions are “premium”; but you must contact them for a price quote.

I’m not certain of the efficacy of the visualization.  Its usefulness is not immediately, intuitively obvious.

Bob Ambrogi’s short piece does a better job of explaining how Ravel works than the Ravelers.  I suppose you could call it a “Ravelation”.
