Advances in technology have forced lawyers to take extra precautions to protect attorney-client privilege. Phone passwords and other added steps can make our phones feel like a maze to negotiate instead of a helpful tool to better serve clients.

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.

Apple fixes security flaw in iOS, perhaps thanks to Snowden? – iPhone J.D.

Jeff Richardson: ¬†“…But over the weekend, there were two posts about this update byJohn Gruber¬†of Daring Fireball (Post 1,¬†Post 2) that I thought were pretty interesting.¬† According to PRISM documents leaked by¬†Edward Snowden, the¬†NSA¬†gained the ability to intercept encrypted iPhone traffic in October of 2012, and that’s apparently right after the bug fixed by iOS 7.0.6 was introduced.¬† As Gruber notes, this could mean all sorts of things.¬† It could mean that someone at Apple intentionally added a backdoor for the NSA.¬† Or it could mean that someone at Apple made a simple coding mistake but the NSA found out about it and exploited it.Or it could just be a big coincidence, but there is at least a chance that Apple has now found and fixed a security bug that had been exploited by the NSA…”

According to a 2013 Nielsen report, 94 percent of consumers in the U.S. have a mobile phone, and the majority of those phones are smartphones. Tablets have not reached that level of market saturation, but one market research firm estimates that tablet shipments will grow from 121 million units in 2012 to 416 million units by 2017. (Those statistics come courtesy of Robert Ambrogi’s¬†article¬†“As the World Goes Mobile Is Your Marketing up to Speed?” in¬†Law Practice Magazine. It is recommended reading as a companion piece.)

A Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Trip to Rock Bottom and Back-The Lawyerist

There are two primary outcomes in a desperate struggle with addiction. The first is to keep going until you die. The second is to get caught.

After roughly a year and a half of active addiction to cocaine, Chuck Ramsay appeared to have decided upon the first. He looked in the mirror, admitted to himself he had a problem, but didn’t know how to keep living without coke. So he decided he would just keep using – keep using coke until he died.

Read about his journey to recovery.

Most attorney-client conversations do not get special protections under American law from N.S.A. eavesdropping. Amid growing concerns about surveillance and hacking, the¬†American Bar Association¬†in 2012 revised its ethics rules to explicitly require¬†lawyers to “make reasonable efforts”¬†to protect confidential information from unauthorized disclosure to outsiders.

Last year, the¬†Supreme Court, in a 5-to-4 decision, rebuffed a legal challengeto a 2008 law allowing warrantless wiretapping that was brought in part by lawyers with foreign clients they believed were likely targets of N.S.A. monitoring. The lawyers contended that the law raised risks that required them to take costly measures, like traveling overseas to meet clients, to protect sensitive communications. But the Supreme Court dismissed their fears as “speculative.”
