Affinity Consulting Blog

The practice of law is not for the faint of heart. Your clients are your priority but on a daily basis you are confronted with a barrage of decisions – are bills ready to go? Do you know how you’re doing financially? Why is there so much paper everywhere? Is it time to replace my computer – it’s so slow?

Here are two important facts about Microsoft Word:

Fact 1: 100% of the formatting problems you’ve experienced when drafting new documents can be completely avoided before they occur.

Fact 2: When editing a document someone else drafted, any formatting glitches can be resolved in just a few clicks, no matter how bad of a mess it is.

Unfortunately, the foregoing facts are true only if you have mastered Word.

Here at Affinity, we like to think we are “Improving the lives of our Clients, One Efficiency at a Time”. But what is most interesting is that you, Our Clients, are improving our lives too.

Each and every day, we are lucky enough to talk to some of the most respected attorneys in the country and the exceptionally capable and dedicated firm administrators and office managers that run those offices.

Thank you for choosing Affinity and for challenging us day in and day out to find better ways to do the things you need to do to be successful. We really love what we do and we love that it helps you succeed.

To show our gratitude to you, Our Clients, in a fun and memorable way, we have named February Client Appreciation Month.

Expert Word users know that the keyboard is faster than the mouse. While you can use the Ribbon to accomplish almost anything in Word, doing so involves taking your hand off the keyboard to move the mouse, wasting valuable time.

This month we show you how to change the case of text in your Word document without taking your hands off the keyboard.

Serving our clients as efficiently and effectively as possible has always been a priority for each of us at Affinity. With that in mind, a few years ago, Affinity created our Client Services Team that is dedicated to being a first line of support for your legal software needs. As we enter the New Year, we wanted to take a moment to re-introduce you to this team and make sure that you understand how they can help you.

Our Partners and staff came up with several resolutions that will help you and your law firm get off to a good start in 2015.

Some of these resolutions related to law office technology. Others are applicable to small businesses in general. Finally, there are a handful of personal resolutions that may help you become healthier and happier in 2015.

Here is our list of resolutions for 2015 (in no particular order).

We asked our Partners, Consultants, and Staff for tech-oriented gift suggestions this holiday season. They answered with an impressive variety of gadgets and gear.

As the year draws to an end, it’s important to reflect on the relationships you have, the people you know, and the good work that you do. Affinity Consulting Group cherishes the relationship we have built with the Association of Legal Administrators as VIP Partners, and want to say thank you for the great events we have had the pleasure or participating in over the past year.

Is it really December already? This year has flown by and with the upcoming holidays, there will be no slowing down for most of us. And even though there is a lot to accomplish, it is important to focus on the End of Year (EOY) review in your time, billing and accounting software.

While it is always a best practice to implement monthly procedures, the fact is it's December and here we are! Don't wait until January or February to review and cleanup 2014; in the long run this will take a lot more time. With everything in order, there’s no last-minute rush trying to get advice from your accountant, or paying excessive fees for hour-intensive catch-up work.
