In today's Digest we feature a few visions of what is to come. The future is unfolding around us daily. The first challenge, before we can even talk about how we embrace the change that is coming, is to simply stay on top of what could be. Remember what they say about that ounce of prevention! Luckily, we have some excellent bloggers and writers in this industry who love getting ahead of the trends for us. Consider this a bit of a Wednesday wake-up call from the likes of Bob Ambrogi, Jinfo, and yours truly. Enjoy!

One Stop Shop?

Online legal services are not a new concept. Virtual law boutiques like LegalZoom and Rocket Lawyer have already been shaking things up for a few years now. Bob Ambrogi brings news of the latest player on the scene and their push to grab a major share of the online market. The future of the legal profession is truly in flux! Check out: Avvo Officially Launches its Fixed-Fee Legal Services in 18 States.


Over on their blog, our friends at Jinfo (formerly known as FreePint) are running my latest legal research app review. Bloomberg Law's mobile solution is a no-nonsense approach to research on the go. Is practical the new powerful? My take is that mobile users will be drawn to its simplicity rather than put off by any bells and whistles it may lack. Decide for yourselves when you check out my review at: Bloomberg Law App - Combining Convenience and Practicality.

Insert Correction

And lastly today, we have another entry from our friend Bob Ambrogi and his LawSites blog. In this one, he takes a look at some cool, new functionality from the folks at Lex Machina. If you are tired of dealing with some of the inaccuracies that tend to show up in PACER, the company is taking steps to help reduce your frustration. Is this the start of a trend? Check out: New Lex Machina Feature Corrects Erroneous Lawyer Listings in PACER.
