Few things are more annoying than receiving a list of problems with no recommended solutions. I tell my team, they can only come to me with a problem when they have a recommendation for how we can solve it.

We see many law firms make the same mistakes on social media over and over again. This discourages them from participating and reaping the true rewards that social media offers. Below are seven of the most common social media mistakes lawyers make and our recommended corrections.

Affinity University Offers Instructional Videos for Dozens of Topics

The success or failure of your law firm in the next year will not be determined by the quality of your services. It will be determined by you and your team’s ability to convert every possible lead into a paying client. Since 1999, it's been our privilege to work with over 18,000 attorneys to help them generate and convert more prospects into paying clients. One of our primary findings is that your lead generation efforts will be wasted unless you have an automated system to nurture them and a team that can convert them. “I don’t have time” is no longer a valid excuse with the marketing automation software that’s available today. “I can't afford to hire anyone to help with the leads” is not an option, especially when you see what a difference the right person can make.

One of the great features of Worldox is the ability to email a document directly from within Worldox. Simply right mouse click on a document and select email. A new blank email message appears with your document attached to it. Often, however, that email is actually and truly blank, when it should have your automatic signature attached. Worldox, does offer a way of adding your signature automatically to outgoing messages. Just follow these steps.

Turning Over a New Financial Leaf in 2017

Time, Billing & Accounting may not be everyone's favorite words, but effective use of software to manage these mission-critical tasks can be the difference between success and failure.

As we end the year, we like to look back at some of the biggest events from 2016. This year some of our most excited and well attended webinars we ahve ever hosted. From entire webinar series to help short webinars, this was truly the year of the webinar for Affinity Consulting Group.

As we end the year, we like to look back at some of the biggest news from 2016. This year was filled with new product announcements, tips and tricks and more. Our top blog posts from 2016 reflect these topics in the ever evolving Legal and technology world.

The end of the year is a great time to tune up your technology so that you can start off the new year the right way. In NetDocuments, one useful year-end exercise is to clean up and close old or inactive matters.

Closing a file is easy. Assuming you have administrator rights, select Define Profile Attributes from the Admin menu. Select a matter and fill in the Closed Date field. The matter will still be searchable but it will no longer appear as a choice in save dialogs. You can also fill in the Closed Date field on a client, which removes the client along with all linked matters from your save dialogs. Not having to wade through all of the closed clients and matters will save people time when saving documents.
