Modern Texas Lawyers are mobile and agile. They are doing a lot of advocacy right from their cell phones and are always on the lookout for applications that will make them more efficient. Here are the top five practical apps that can help Texas Lawyers on the go.
Whether it is keeping up with the latest news or reading a business book, the long stretch of Texas roads can be opportunities for the mobile lawyer to get up to speed. Audible is the best and largest audio book/newspaper/magazine source. Stream or download to your phone, plug in to your truck's audio jack and you are good to go!
4. Texas Constitution and Statutes.
It's not a code book, just the law. A great asset when you need to quickly throw down code numbers.
3. Calendars by Readdle.
The best I've found. The monthly view actually displays text- even on your little phone screen. Invaluable when you are standing at the bench picking an entry date that doesn't interfere with you son's baseball game.
You wanna get paid don't you? This app tracks your time from your phone and generates serviceable invoices directly from the app that you can email or print. This ain't Time Slips. It's just drop dead simple- which what I love about it.
All your files. At any time. At any place. Need I say more?
Apps come and go and lawyers have to keep looking to find the best ones. Of course there are all the considerations about security and confidentiality in the use of apps- but that's a topic for different day.
