Who is Using the Cloud and Who is Using Technology in the Courtroom?
- 50% increase YOY (year over year) in use of cloud services. @CaseyHall
- 58% of lawyers use Dropbox #ABATECHSHOW stats. @paperlesschase
- 40 percent of solos use cloud services. @rocketmatter
- In 2013, 34% of attorneys use iPads in the courtroom, up more than 20% in one year. @pegeenturner
eFiling is Here
- Interesting stat: 40% of state courts use mandatory e-filing. @ernieattorney (And as we march forward with eCourt in Oregon, stay on your toes! There are more than a few ways to commit malpractice.)
- Only 13% survey respondents use whole disk encryption for device security. 25% use remote data wiping. @RealSheree
- Bonus tip from yours truly: lawyers would be well-advised to tighten up security promptly to protect information subject to HIPAA.
Social Media Engagement
- … Almost 80% of firms now using Social Media. @CaseyHall_
- 72.3% of all atty-social media stats are unverifiable. “@Westlaw: 39% of firm blogs result in clients or referrals.” @victormedina
- 70% of lawyers use LinkedIn #ABATECHSHOW stats. @ernieattorney
- 22.6 percent of law firms have no social media presence. @rocketmatter
- 20% of lawyers responding to survey use twitter/microblogging. @Westlaw
To Blog or Not to Blog
- 39% of firm blogs result in clients or referrals. @Westlaw
- Surprised to see that only 27% of law firms are blogging yet 39% of those said the blog had resulted in clients-survey. @RealSheree
- My two cents: Why aren’t you blogging! Adding frequently updated content causes search engines to crawl your Web site more often and will improve your listing in search results. Check out this oldie but goodie post, 5 Ways to Increase Your Visibility on the Web.
