Adams and Reese Partner Jeffrey Richardson was interviewed by the legal business online publication, Law360, in an article, "The Top 10 Apps for Lawyers," which discusses the most practical applications lawyers are downloading on their smartphones and iPads to boost productivity and deliver better legal services for their clients.
Richardson discussed the "Documents To Go" application, which lets attorneys review briefs easily by viewing and editing files, as well as saving documents in a specific folder. Richardson said because the iPhone’s built-in viewer could be cumbersome for reading documents, "Documents To Go" makes it much easier to maneuver the screen and alter text size. The app is also available for BlackBerrys, Androids and iPads. “You can scroll up and down, and it’s more convenient to view Word documents,” he said.
"Documents To Go" is good for storing files in different folders and managing documents, and also has a helpful footnotes feature, Richardson said.
Richardson has been a part of the firm’s Technology Committee for over a decade, and he has been very involved in expanding the firm’s use of technology to meet the needs of clients. He also enjoys helping lawyers and clients use technology to improve their professional and personal lives, and he publishes iPhone J.D., the only website devoted to the use of iPhones by attorneys. He has also served as an adjunct professor at Tulane University, teaching “Computers and the Law.”
