Hi Helen,
Affordable is a word that requires more definition. When you are selecting a solution you need to consider the full cost of ownership which can include investment in hardware, software, maintenance fees, IT support to install and upgrade your software and hardware infrastructure and your time to get up to speed. The defining moment of truth is when you actually reap the benefits of feeling organized and in control of your law firm.

A web based solution sounds like the right choice, however you mentioned you'd like have it installed on a desktop too. If you are not comfortable going with a solution in the cloud, there are products in the market that are installed at your site, but have accessibility to information from a web application. It sounds like that would be your best solution. For example, I can talk to the solutions I know best. At LexisNexis products such as PCLaw and Time Matters w/Billing Matters are installed solutions and offer a web application to access information from mobile devices, tablets, etc. Some other popular solutions might offer a mobile app at an additional charge or often aligns with a 3rd party vendor to build the mobile app that integrates with their system.


sounds equally handy as http://www.thelegalassistant.com/ 's personal injury mgmt tool. could you please suggest an affordable tool including accessible from a mobile and also, can be installed on a desktop or a small system- laptop, notebook?

Loretta: Do you have any suggestions for specific time and billing programs. I have and use and older Timeslips version, but their newer versions are not to my liking, too complicated and expensive. Any suggestions?
