Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Rocket Matter Now Integrates With Dropbox

Rocket Matter®, legal practice management and time and billing solution for small to mid-sized law firms, today announces integration with Dropbox, a popular Internet document backup service.

Rocket Matter users can associate matters with Dropbox folders, allowing them to view documents associated with a given client case. Because Dropbox synchronizes with the user’s local file system, no file uploading is necessary. Users can leverage the massive amounts of documents they currently maintain with Dropbox and easily access them through Rocket Matter’s web interface.

“We’ve found Dropbox to be immensely popular in the attorney small office community,” says Larry Port, the company’s CEO and Co-Founder. “At a recent conference devoted to legal technology, nearly 80% of the participants discussed using Dropbox and it was mentioned in almost every presentation. We feel Rocket Matter integration will make their lives even more productive.”

In addition to Dropbox integration, Rocket Matter also added matter-level user permissions based on requests from some of their larger firms. Now, each matter can be viewed by everyone in the firm, only the matter creator, or specified individuals.

“Some of our larger customers require the ability to protect information on a matter-by-matter basis,” explains Ariel Jatib, Rocket Matter’s Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder. “Our initial permissions capability revolved around role, such as access to billable information, which is fine for smaller firms. But when a law firm has fifty people, then more data isolation is required.”
