Dixon is also a co-founder of The St. Louis Suit Project. The nonprofit collects new and gently used suits and donates them to high school and college students who would not otherwise be able to afford one. The suit recipients also receive free tailoring. The St. Louis Suit Project currently accepts men’s suits and will eventually expand into professional wear for women.

This week, Dixon, who tweets from @CrashLawyers, shares some of his favorite iPhone apps with Lawyer Tech Review.

One of Dixon’s favorite work apps is FastCase. Dixon says Fastcase is a user-friendly app and a courtroom essential. “As a trial lawyer, the FastCase app is an efficient way to perform legal research. If a case is mentioned in court, I don’t have to wait until I get back to the office to review it. I can look it up on my iPhone.” (Clickable affiliate links)

The FastCase app is free but a user needs to register an account. As a member of the Missouri Bar, Dixon is eligible to receive a free FastCase account.

App for fun

Synchronize bookmarks

For syncing his bookmarks, Dixon likes Xmarks. With the free version, the user installs Xmarks on each computer and it integrates all of the bookmarks, across computers and even across browsers. The premium version, which costs $12 annually, allows users to access bookmarks on the iPhone, Android and Blackberry with the help of a free app.

“Any bookmark you save on your home computer, office computer, or smart phone is automatically synced with all of the devices,” explains Dixon. “The Xmarks app keeps everything uniform and at the touch of your fingertips.”
