Stand back, he’s packing a PDA

By December 2, 2004Uncategorized

Okay, I have to admit that I’m a bit picky about writing, especially when it comes to discussions of technology.  I was intrigued by the idea of an article on the importance of lawyers using PDAs in their practice.  The article made some great points about using a PDA as an information management tool, but at very end, no doubt in an effort to end with a wisp of wisdom, the writer makes this lame observation:

"Using a PDA at even a basic level makes you appear more organized and competent. This can help to impress clients and intimidate opponents."

I don’t know if clients are going to be impressed just because you use a PDA to organize, but I seriously doubt that opponents are going to be intimidated just because you are pulling notes out of a handheld device.  If so, they aren’t very worthy opponents. 

P.S. If you're a practicing lawyer, check out this Law Practice Assessment . After answering a few questions, you'll get detailed recommendations for improving five key areas of your practice.
