IT Support for South Florida Law Firms
More than ever, South Florida law firms and attorneys are being forced to deal with difficult IT issues affecting their services. A recent survey of law practice management conducted by Thomson Reuters Solo and Small Law Firm group found that among challenges presently facing lawyers and their office managers is an increase in the complexity of technology. Law firm managers identified IT challenges as the fifth greatest challenge facing their practices. The survey also found that most law practices have not yet implemented changes to deal with this challenge.

Lawyers and law practice managers are generally not trained or prepared to deal with today’s rapid technology advances. Between managing client files, practice management software, billing, communications and security, the plethora of technological solutions offered, along with added risks and costs, have proven overwhelming for law firms that are inexperienced in IT.
Choosing among options is difficult alone. For instance, choosing between Cloud-based solutions such as Clio and Filevine and an in-office server-based solution can be a daunting task for someone with little IT experience. What are the needs that must be met? Which software will fulfill those needs best? What about email, documents, calendaring, billing and accounting? What about compliance? Security? Choices must be made, and “trial and error” is not the best means of making those choices.
