LegalCloud™, a private dedicated virtual server and desktop solution for law firms.

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Advanced Legal is very excited to announce the launch of LegalCloud™, a private dedicated virtual server and desktop solution for law firms. Many cloud hosting packages do not offer dedicated virtual servers or utilize technology that maximizes performance. We do, and that, along with our legal specific expertise is setting our LegalCloud packages apart. While LegalCloud is now available as a package that can be completely customized to fit the needs of your firm, we have been successfully hosting virtualized server and desktop environments for years.

Shellshock Bash Bug Alert

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Am I Vulnerable?

For most of our clients the main impact of this vulnerability will be to personal MacBooks, iMacs and Mac Pro devices but this bug also applies to firewalls, routers and even webcams. It is critical that all of the firm’s staff pay attention to the security of devices that they either join to the network, or use to work on and transmit firm documents.

It is time to Rationalize that App – It’s costing you money and you need to know WHY!

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

I shared an article last week on LinkedIn about Application Rationalization – basically a process that gets to the heart of “Is this application being used? How and Why?” This is a process that should be a key step of the planning for any desktop or VDI rollout but is too often either glossed over, or compromised by legacy user requirements and questionable business processes.

Business Intelligence software is a means to an end – now you need to use it to improve profitability.

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

The focus on Business Intelligence (BI) over the past couple of years has brought new insight to practice management and undoubtedly has contributed to more solid decision making in firms that have fully implemented it, but I would suggest it is time to use the data BI provides and take a hard look at how specific actions play out from a business and process perspective.

So what does vigilance look like? IE security flaw reminds us – vigilance looks boring and it will save you time, money and hassle.

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

I heeded the call, I left Windows XP behind after all those beautiful years together! Now that we find ourselves squarely on the other side of Windows XP “End of Life” Support, a vulnerability is uncovered that reminds us to remain vigilant and stay on top of patching. We preach it, we sell it and we can’t stop repeating it – sometimes, a lot of the time, the simple stuff saves the most time, money and effort.

What The Bradley Timepiece can teach us about inclusive design.

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Last week I heard a story on NPR about an innovative piece of technology and design that is both functional and inclusive – and it is wristwatch. (They call it a timepiece because you don’t have to “watch” it all the time, I’ll explain.) The interview was profiling the origins of The Bradley by Eone which is a tactile timepiece designed to not just show the time but allows users to “feel” the time as well. The time can be seen or felt as two ball bearings are driven by magnets around the clock face. It was created in collaboration with people with vision loss but has proven just as popular with the sighted population. Maybe because it is so good looking and possibly because we want to know what time it is without having to look? A stroke of genius for those stuck in long meetings?

3 Things for Your Firm to Consider in 2014

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

My dog – a one-year-old super-high-energy Weimaraner – is noisily cavorting through the office. This distraction, oddly, turned my thoughts to the IT dogs that are soon to wreak havoc (if they haven’t already) in many law firms.
