Alabama attorneys who want to use iPads and other technological advances in their law practices may be interested in reading my new article, Technology in Appellate Law Practice. The article appears in the 4th Quarter issue of The Guardian, the newsletter of the Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (ACDLA). The article is not currently available online because the newsletter is only for members of ACDLA. However, I’ll post a link to the article if it goes up online later.
If you are an attorney practicing criminal defense law in Alabama, you need to be a member of ACDLA – and not just so you can read my technology article. I consider ACDLA membership so important to the practice of criminal defense that I even tell people they should not hire an Alabama criminal defense lawyer unless he or she is an ACDLA member. Membership in ACDLA is the best way for attorneys to stay up to date on the latest developments in criminal law, and provides opportunities to network and collaborate with other criminal defense lawyers around the State. To join ACDLA, visit their membership page online. If you would like more information on why you should join ACDLA, send me an email or give me a call to discuss the benefits of membership.
Attorneys may also be interested in visiting the About.com Law Practice Management website and blog, which I’ve been writing for About.com for a little over a year now. On that site, I provide advice on law practice management, legal marketing, proper trust account management, lawyer software, and other topics of interest to lawyers. About.com is part of The New York Times Company.
Many lawyers in Alabama have made use of our legal resources page, particularly for convenient access to the Alabama Rules of Appellate Procedure. We appreciate all of the calls and emails we have received about it, and we will keep adding to our online resources as time permits. Watch for some particularly useful resources we are developing to be released soon.
