I’ve begun packing for my big move to the world of the virtual law firm, and it’s turning out to be far more interesting that I would have otherwise guessed.
For starters, this afternoon I realized that I have one lonely box of files to cart with me.
Wait, what? One box of files?
Yup, just one box. And it isn’t even full.
Everything is saved on the computer system. Every note, every memo, every pleading. It’s all there. The only “wet ink” stuff I keep are the original petitions for my open files – the rest of it gets scanned and given back to the client.
That leaves me with a problem. Well, three problems. I have three filing cabinets that are being used for storage right now. They’re filled with wires, old keyboards, stacks of office supplies from days gone by. I’m not leaving them with my landlord, bu I’d really like to put them to good use. If you know of any not-for-profit organization that is willing to come by and pick it all up from me, please drop me a line.
