Attorneys - life on a tightrope
Many attorneys struggle to achieve balance between their professional and their personal life. Demands at the office are often at odds with the desire to achieve time spent with family and friends, time to connect with things outside of the office and time to connect with the important things of life.
Paul J. Unger, an attorney and founding member of HMU Consulting, can help attorneys lead more productive lives and spend time at home. “Setting Up Your Law Office at Home,” being presented on Friday, Dec. 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., may well prove the most practical course to help you in the practice of law. Back by popular demand, this course demonstrates how technology is making it possible to work from home so that quality of life is not sacrificed.
“Lawyers have very specific needs and concerns relating to client communications and security when working from a home or satellite location,” Unger said. “Technology is enabling us to do it. It can be beneficial to your productivity levels, mental health, and family life.”
Unger will discuss computers for home law office use; accessing your office computers when you’re at home; printing concerns; protecting your firm’s small home network and computers; handheld computers (PDA’s) for lawyers; backup systems; word processors; scanning software; accessing your law practice management and billing software from home; finding law firm documents from home; law office communications; getting help; and training – the most important part of your technology budget.
