Speakers Britt Lorish, Erik Mazzone, Lincoln Mead and Mark Rosch shared their top websites for lawyers during the always crowd-pleasing session “60 Sites in 60 Minutes.”

A few of our favorite sites highlighted in the ABA Techshow finale include:

Viivo and Sookasa:: If you share and store documents in the cloud-based storage system Dropbox, then you’ll want to first encrypt sensitive data using either Viivo (free) or Sookasa (free or paid).

The Wirecutter: Need help finding the best tech gadget for you? This website offers helpful shopping tips and reviews on tech products for your practice, home and self.

CopyPasteCharacter: All of the odd characters you may ever need to type into an email, tweet or mobile document displayed in a single page. Just click, copy and paste.

Cloudsurfing: Discover and evaluate new Web-based services and apps. It even provides screen shots of different user interfaces so you’ll know what the services are like before you sign up for a demo or purchase.


Momondo and Skyscanner: Neither site is controlled by hotel or airline companies (unlike other popular travel sites), and they offer a wider variety of travel options and hard-to-find deals.

Byliner: A collection of fiction and nonfiction short stories and long-form articles written by established and promising new writers.


Meeting Wizard: No more telephone tag! This free service allows users to send online invitations to plan and schedule meetings and other events, plus propose optional dates, manage responses and send automatic reminders.

BirthDatabase and TLO: One website can help you track down information about an individual by supplying the birthdate of more than 120 million names stored in its database. The other is a comprehensive investigative research database that tracks names, aliases, Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers (even unlisted ones), relatives, neighbors, assets, driver’s licenses and vehicle info, and email addresses.

Cue: Have data stored all over the Web in various cloud programs? Cue puts it all together into one interface for easy access.


AudioName: Is your moniker difficult for others to pronounce? This site allows users to attach personalized audio recordings of their names in email and on websites so others don’t commit the awkward faux pas of mispronouncing in person.

The ABA’s Law Practice Management Section intends to put material from this and other Techshow sessions online.
