In setting up a mobile law office or solo practice, a large consideration is to keep your operating costs down. A large expense, in addition to your computers, will be the technology you use. Although we advocate operating with low overhead, this is the one area that you should invest in.
As a Mobile Law Office, your success depends on having your computers, printers, scanners and office devices working well and delivering professional output. For example, spending more money for a quality laser printer/scanner/copier may save you time and money in the long run if it doesn’t break down or jam and can process papers more quickly.
The good news for solo practitioners is that there are so many practice management options out there saving you time and money. There are many software programs designed for solo practioners or the small law firm. You just need to do some research and comparisons to see which one works best for you. The best part is that these systems can be managed from your laptop or mobile phone thereby assisting you in your “Mobile Law Office.”
