I suspect many law firms have typewriters squirreled away somewhere just to fill in forms.
Ross Kodner, computer guru extraordinaire, has an article about how Acrobat Standard, Professional or Professional Extended editions can be used as a typewriter to fill in those forms. He gives very detailed step-by-step instructions about how to save the forms as pdfs and then how to fill them in. http://blog.technolawyer.com/2010/01/smalllaw-acrobat-typewriter.html
He has his own blog, http://rossipsa.com/, and this and some of his other articles are also published in the Small Law blog at Technolawyer.com.
There is no charge to subscribe to either Ross’ blog or the Technolawyer.com mailings. Subscribing to both is highly recommended.
I wrote earlier about using pipl and other sites for finding information about potential jurors and others — including discovering what federal and state political contributions they had made and which parties or candidates received their contributions.
While I was at the latest American Bar Association Techshow, Jim Calloway told about a site that was new to me. It’s 123People.com. It’s a good source of information, and, if you search your own name, you might find yourself mentioned in cases or in articles that you had forgotten about.
And, if you’re trying to find someone — or how old someone is – or their phone number – or perhaps even their prior addresses — try Zabasearch. It has an incredible amount of information — and it’s also free.
