This month I’m focusing on application software. Although there are different software preferences for every lawyer, I’m sticking to Windows, since most lawyers use it. As with last month’s article, “Ten Must-Have Web Sites for Solo Practitioners,” picking the best of anything is difficult, so I’ll focus on what I use every day in my practice. I’m sure I’ll hear from you about software you use, that I missed.

1. First and foremost, I use Amicus Attorney and Amicus Accounting for case management, and time and billing. There are other programs that do the same thing, so pick your poison. These programs allow the solo to be in computer-control of his or her practice, and to keep track of calendar, tasks, contacts, e-mail and everything else that a lawyer has to be on top of every day. I start every day with a look at the Amicus Calendar, and the list of tasks remaining to be accomplished.
