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!

That's A Big Family Law Firm

Consider these numbers:

200+ lawyers
10 partners
100+ offices
Lawyers in 30 states
An international practice that includes lawyers in the UK

Such is the behemoth that is Cordell & Cordell, the country's largest (and fastest growing) family law law firm.

Utilizing the for men only marketing approach, St. Louis based C&C has exploded since its 1990 founding as a general practice law firm.

Aggressive advertising, aggressive expansion, aggressive attorney recruitment have driven C&C, an unsurpassed social media presence. Reminiscent of Jacoby & Meyers and Hyatt Legal Services, Cordell & Cordell has hit its stride as this decade's model for consumer oriented law firm growth.

From a marketing and internet perspective this firm has it all. If you want to learn from one of the most innovative marketing machines in family law practice click on over to the C&C websites. They are sites to behold.
They also have an evolved presence on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc., etc.

De-Stress in 2016

Jim Calloway is the Director of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Management Assistance Program. He is also a law technology pioneer. He served as co-chair of ABA TECHSHOW 2005 and the first two GPSSF National Solo and Small Firm Conferences in 2006 and 2007. He writes and speaks frequently on legal technology issues, Internet research, law office management and organization and legal ethics. He is the author of Jim Calloway's Law Practice Tips Blogs, one of the first blogs period, and certainly one of the first focusing on legal technology. He is the co-host of The Digital Edge podcast series on the Legal Talk Network. If there was a lawyers' internet and technology hall of fame, Jim would be in it.

Jim has published Toward A Less Stressful Workplace in the latest issue of Law Practice Magazine. It is a great reminder that we need to be mindful of, and plan for the stress that is an inevitable product of our chosen profession. By Jim's own admission none of his tips are new. They are great reminders that are easily forgotten when we get busy.  For instance, in 2016 how about getting in the habit of meeting deadlines a day or two before they arrive?  How about abandoning the mentality that days off show weakness?  When you go on vacation, Go On Vacation! Stress is not to be ignored. It can be managed. That starts by acknowledging it.

Refresh The Speed of Your iPhone

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT200291

Like every computer, iPhone's can get sluggish when their on-board memory gets stuffed. Here is a little known trick to clear things out, and re-boost the speed of your iPhone.

Open the AppStore on you iPhone. At the bottom of the screen you will see the Featured, Top Charts, Explore, Search, and Updates buttons. Press any of those buttons ten (10) times in quick succession.  The screen will briefly turn white, and then the AppStore will return.

Your iPhone will now have refreshed memory, and processing speed should be improved.
