Encryption Made Simple for Lawyers
Our Price: $69.95

By Sharon D. Nelson, David G. Ries and John W. Simek

Only about a third of lawyers use encryption to protect confidential and privileged information - and among sole practitioners, the figure is under 25%. Not only that, but among lawyers who do use encryption, many don't understand the programs they're using and how to make sure they're doing it right.

Data breaches are common, and a lack of encryption can allow hackers to steal your data - and your clients' data! This essential book will explain the basics of encryption in non-technical language, and show you easy, inexpensive ways to protect yourself, whether you're using a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone; sending documents or e-mails; or relying on wireless or cloud technology.

Time Management for Attorneys: A Lawyer's Guide to Decreasing Stress, Eliminating Interruptions and Getting Home on Time
Our Price: $79.95

By Mark Powers & Shawn McNalis

Poor time-management habits lead to stress, frustration and a constant feeling of being out of control. Now, the directors of the Atticus program, the leader in high-level practice-management seminars for attorneys, reveal their easy-to-use and time-tested techniques for taking control, gaining freedom and doing far more while going home early.

You'll learn to create a "crisis-free zone" in your office, improve your client intake system, implement "block and tackle" techniques to manage interruptions, handle client communications more smoothly, use the "power hour" every day for focused performance and increased efficiency, and much more. You'll get real-life examples, exercises, and case studies plus a CD containing more than 50 practice-specific forms.

These strategies have been proven in real law firms to absolutely work. It really is possible to have a practice that serves your life instead of enslaving you.

"In my thirty years of experience as a trial lawyer, I have witnessed most lawyers being led around by the nose by their practices, chasing billable hours and living a life tied to the time sheet. Mark Powers and Shawn McNalis show lawyers how to prioritize their lives and maximize the use of their time. They actually show lawyers how to work less and make more! They also show lawyers how to create practices which serve them instead of the other way around…I owe an improved business life and full family life to Mark and Shawn. Buy it, read it and re-read it." – Mark Chinn, Jackson, Miss.

"A must-read for anyone who is struggling with an out-of-control practice and wants to bring some sanity and enjoyment back to their work, and their life." – Laura Calloway.

Hire Slow, Fire Fast: A Lawyer's Guide to Building a High Performance Team
Our Price: $79.95

By Mark Powers & Shawn McNalis

Lawyers have been trained in how to practice law, not in how to recruit, hire, manage and motivate their associates, paralegals and support staff. The result is that the vast majority of law offices underperform – they don’t hire the best people, and don’t get out of them all they could.

This book will show you how to find, hire, use and keep the best performers, enabling you to grow your practice and make more money, while reducing long hours and stress.

Step by step, you’ll learn how to recruit, how to interview, how to hire, how to train, how to give feedback, and how to motivate your team. Plus you’ll get numerous specific troubleshooting tactics to deal with the most common staff problems that arise in a law office. And you’ll learn what almost every other law office does wrong, and why.

You’ll also get more than 30 valuable forms including recruitment checklists, assessment and skill tests, reward certificates, employee surveys and more.

This book was written by the directors of the Atticus program, the country’s top law practice management coaching firm. It’s based on practical, real-world experience with hundreds of law firms, and it will show you what techniques actually work in a law-firm environment.

One volume, softbound, 285 pages. Published in 2013.
