Here are some Dropbox alternatives that do. Like Dropbox, each offers an easy-to-use interface, 2GB of free storage, and drag-and-drop syncing, and any are guaranteed to be a boon to your business…”

He works as a Program Attorney for the Minnesota State Bar Association Continuing Legal Education (Minnesota CLE), where he helps develop continuing education programs and manages Minnesota CLE’s New Lawyer Initiative.

Given all the media buzz about Heartbleed, I thought it might be useful for lawyers and law firms to understand what it really means for them, without either too much techno-jargon or over-use of dumbed-down metaphor.

PacerPro offers a better way to search federal court records than PACER

Robert Ambrogi reviews a new and better way to search federal court records.

 PacerPro, a service started by Gavin McGrane, a San Francisco lawyer who became frustrated with PACER‘s shortcomings and wanted an easier way to use it. Even better, PacerPro is now free. It launched in November 2012 as a subscription service at $25 a month. But in January it eliminated the subscription fee. “We decided to allow people to get a chance to know us and see how good the product is,” McGrane told me.

MODERN INTERFACE

PacerPro provides a clean, modern interface to the PACER system. But PacerPro is more than just lipstick on a pig. It actually improves on the federal site through features such as real-time universal search, aggregated search results and one-click downloads of entire dockets. To achieve real-time universal search, PacerPro bypasses PACER’s Case Locator. Instead, it logs in directly to all 214 court sites. Whereas the Case Locator will not find same-day data, PacerPro will. Search PacerPro by party or attorney name or case number.
