How Attorneys Can Take Advantage of FindLaw Answers

Who says technology makes things easier? Ok, well lots of people, but lawyers do not necessarily fall into that category. Ask most lawyers and they will tell you that keeping up with all of the trends and complexities associated with technology can be a job in itself.

Wrong.

Very few attorneys, new or old, actually know how to manage a law firm. I know coming out of law school I knew nothing about legal fees and everything about famous (and mostly deceased) Supreme Court Justices. Sure our research skills are stellar, but very few attorneys know the business side of running a law practice.
