With the continuing onslaught of data breach stories, every lawyer should be aware whether their state has such a law on the books and what it requires in the event of a breach. The National Council of State Legislatures has compiled a chart of which states and territories have such laws and links to them as well.

I've long been an advocate of surveying your clients on how you did when you complete their representation. My friends at AttorneyatWork recently carried an article from Josh Lenon, an attorney and Director of Communications at Clio on this very topic. Josh reinforces what most of us that advise lawyers and firms already know – most firms don't ask for client feedback on how they did.

My friend Ross Kodner passed away at the much too young age of 52 on July 29, 2013. I had planned on posting a memorial to him much earlier but the Milwaukee Bar Association asked if I would pen a memorial for Ross to appear in their October 1, 2013 newsletter. I didn't think it was appropriate to post my memorial here before the MBA published so I held off until today.

When it comes to capturing screenshots, the one tool that myself and most other Practice Mangement Advisors and legal technologists use is Snagit from Techsmith Corporation ( the folks who also bring us Camtasia Studio screen recording software). This is screen capture on steroids and there is an amazing deal on Amazon for a Snagit 11 download for $19.99 here. No idea how long this is going to last, but the regular price for Snagit is $49.95. Snagit does so much more than the Snipping tool in Windows and other products that it is an indispensible tool for many of us. At this price, it should be for you as well. Get it while you can.
UPDATE: Looks like the deal has ended. For those that tok advantage of this – kudos – you saved a bundle and got a terrific piece of software. For those that missed it, Snagit is still a great tool at its regular price.
