What is lawyer tech review, you ask? It is a blog, of course. Our focus is technology, apps and gadgets that lawyers are using in their professional and personal lives to boost their productivity, manage their practices and, yes, even have fun. Our aim is to provide plain-language tips to lawyers and other professionals who may not consider themselves techies or dream in code but enjoy their gadgets, apps and technology nonetheless.

Like a television spinoff, this blog is an outgrowth of the Legal Media Matters site, where we provide how-to advice on legal PR and content writing for law firm blogs and websites. Last year we posted articles on some of the time-saving technology featured at the Missouri Bar’s Solo and Small Firm Conference. We also ran a guest article about the iPad for lawyers. Because we closely follow our Google Analytics and Webmaster tools stats, we noticed a great deal of interest on the topics, but the subject matter didn’t quite fit with the content on the Legal Media Matters site. Thus the concept for Lawyer Tech Review was born.

Another amenity we are excited to offer is bilingual posts, which will allow both lawyers and abogados to access the information we present. Legal Media Matters, the publisher of Lawyer Tech Review, is fortunate to work with a number of talented professionals across the globe. Madrid-based engineer Enrique Serrano, LMM’s designer and programmer, is one such professional. A Spanish advertising agency veteran who designs and develops multilingual sites in Europe and the U.S., Serrano serves as Lawyer Tech Review’s Spanish editor.

Just as we encourage feedback and article ideas on our Legal Media Matters site, we also welcome your input at Lawyer Tech Review. If you are using a gadget, app or software that you think might be of interest to other lawyers, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear your ideas.

Whether you’re reading the posts from your desktop, laptop, netbook, iPhone, Droid, Blackberry or iPad, I want to welcome you to the site, and I hope that our articles will inspire you to new levels of productivity!
