Episode Notes

Many people, including lawyers, are using an organizational tool called Evernote and are singing its praises. They are enthusiastic about its capacity to capture all types of information in many formats, to organize information into useful notebooks, and to enable access to that information across multiple platforms. In a time when almost everything is done online, Evernote is a user-friendly web service that can help lawyers stay organized, freeing up time for marketing and taking on new clients.

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell talk about their own use of Evernote and how Evernote might work well for you in a legal practice. They examine photo recognition, scanning business cards and connecting to LinkedIn, collecting and organizing information for case research, and many more ways in which Evernote can make an attorney’s life more efficient. They also discuss downsides to using the tool; there are ethical dilemmas that incur when retaining sensitive client information in a cloud-based tool.

Kennedy and Mighell also briefly reflect on how printing physical copies has changed and how lawyers will think of hard copies in the future. Stay tuned for Parting Shots, that one tip, website, or observation that you can use the second this podcast ends.
