This book is truly a remarkable resource for one of the most popular practice management software packages for driving law firm efficiency and profitability in use today.

LexisNexis® Legal & Professional today announced the publication of the “The Lawyers Guide to PCLaw Software.” This definitive guide to the LexisNexis PCLaw® practice management solution was authored by Steven J. Best and published by the ABA Law Practice Division in time for the ABA TECHSHOW®. The book is available for retail purchase in the ABA online store.

“PCLaw is one of, if not the best, time, billing, accounting, and practice management software packages on the market today,” said Mr. Best, who is an attorney, certified law office software consultant and a founding and managing partner with the Affinity Consulting Group in Atlanta. “It provides the best of all worlds: great functionality, an easy interface, a plethora of useful and meaningful reports, all built on a solid platform.”

“The Lawyers Guide to PCLaw Software” is a 300-page guide for the product which has “been implemented in over 30,000 law firms throughout the world,” according to the introduction written by the author. The book serves as a comprehensive reference guide filled with exceptionally detailed chapters that will offer tips and techniques for firms new to the practice management software – and also for those veteran law firms seeking to use the software “more efficiently and more productively.”

The book represents years of experience helping firms implement PCLaw and other practice management solutions, in addition to the 18 months he spent researching and writing the book. In commemoration of the publication, Mr. Best will be on hand in the LexisNexis booth (#208) at the ABA TECHSHOW 2015 to sign complimentary copies of “The Lawyers Guide to PCLaw Software.”

Conference attendees interested in obtaining a copy should visit the booth on Friday, April 17, 2015 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. following the day’s key note speech. Copies are limited and available to the first 100 attendees on a first come, first serve basis. The book is also available online for purchase:    

“This book is truly a remarkable resource for one of the most popular practice management software packages for driving law firm efficiency and profitability in use today,” said Jonah Paransky, managing director and vice president of product management with the LexisNexis software division. “We congratulate Steven on his achievement and would encourage PCLaw customers to acquire a copy and keep it on hand as a reference.”

Mr. Best, who practiced law for a decade before transitioning to legal technology consulting, brings to bear a background in accounting and economics in his day-to-day law management and his technology consulting work. He is an active member with the ABA Law Practice Management Division, a LexisNexis Certified Partner and a national speaker at many CLE programs around the US and Canada. He is currently slated to be the chair of ABA TechShow 2016.
