Products & Services for Small Law Firms

Our website includes reviews, commentary, previews, and examples of legal technology every attorney needs to consider for their office infrastructure—what we call the “legal tech stack.” If you would like to know more than this Legal Technology Buyers Guide tells you, look at the resources pages on our website. These include, a complete guide to Legal Technology, how to run a Paperless Practice, and a Guide to Starting a Firm.

We have broken this Legal Technology Buyers Guide into basic categories. Each category has a portal page, where you can learn more about the specific type of product. From these portal pages, you can dive directly into our reviews of the products, and see commentary from other attorneys. If you see an Affinity Partner badge, it means Lawyerist Insiders are entitled to a discount. (Already a member? Log in here. If not, register here—it’s free!)

Additionally, in each portal page, we include a basic guide on how to choose those products. We also help you determine how to differentiate between individual offerings. Keep in mind, however, that just because software works for someone else, it doesn’t mean it will fit your particular needs. Use this Legal Technology Buyers Guide to create a tech stack for your practice. Don’t just throw together a combination of disparate products and hope they’ll make your practice better.

As always, keep your Ethical Obligations in mind. In addition to your obligations to confidentiality, and the protection of your client property, many states now have an obligation to stay abreast of technology. Be sure to balance these considerations.

Getting Started

Dive-in to our Legal Technology Buyers Guide with the following links. If you’re new to choosing legal technology, or you’re starting from scratch, the portals below are generally in order of importance to attorneys. Start from the top and work your way down. Additionally, some of our portals will have a Product Recommendation Wizard at the top of the page. Use this tool to help you determine which products are best for your specific firm.
