There is a blinding array of smartphones for attorneys to choose from (operating systems, manufacturers, models, etc.). Which is the right phone for you – and your firm? Are there problems with multiple smartphone types in a single firm? Which is the best network? Should you have a smartphone policy? Is it ok to allow personal smartphones to sync to your network?

Topics include:
