Need a way to track matters and occasionally record time but I. Can probably get by with quickbooks and google calendar etc for a while. thoughts? Also, can I negotiate with clip/practice panther type companies to get a dirt cheap intro rate?

Yes absolutely. Letís get lunch or a drink.

Iím out there hustling having lunch with lawyers and friends all over the county. I got 2 low dollar value PI cases that were referred to me by good local pi firms so that Iíll think of them if a monster case ever walks in. Iím doing a couple expungements and some other low level criminal def work too.

Yeah, $1k plus costs. Honestly not worth doing long term but gives me some some shit to do. One of them is in alachua and I will just get it heard when Iím up there for a game next fall.

You ever do a clemency petition? Like for a felon to own a gun. I think it has no chance of success but I said Iíd prepare it for $5k.

Clio is a fucking nightmare and slows down your workflow. Practice management software is for idiots. Good luck ever quitting and transferring info out. Keep it simple and use a good consistent folder hierarchy in your OS. Make each main case folder have a word doc or spreadsheet with client info and status, etc. Then just use a google calendar or whatever service you use for that. That's all you need.
