In the 21st century, law firms no longer run on just paper and pencil. Legal technology is a booming industry, which is why lawyers and professionals come together annually for the ABA Techshow in Chicago. This year, from Feb. 27 to March 2, attendees will scour the expo floor and participate in educational sessions to discover the newest products and services that can support their law practices.

Whether or not you’re attending the conference, we want to know what legal gadget or software is your favorite?

This week, we’d like to ask: What tech gear do you use at your law firm, and how is it helpful to you? What product or service would you recommend to other law firms?

Answer in the comments and on social media. You can answer via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Read the answers to last week’s question: Should defendants be forcibly medicated to be competent for trial?

Featured answer:

Posted by Ann Montgomery: “Tough question. If the defendant is found incompetent would s/he be released? If it’s a choice between a non-medicated and potentially dangerous person being released and forced medication, I’d reluctantly choose forced medication. If the defendant could go through a legal process to be placed in a mental health facility and not be released until s/he is competent and could face trial, then I’d vote no forced medication.”
