Technology in the legal profession is constantly changing and increasing significantly, allowing for attorneys to work smarter and faster to satisfy the legal needs of their clients. At the Louisiana law office of Thomas D. Davenport, technology is a key factor in efficiently operating and maintaining his practice, The Davenport Firm, APLC.
The following are just a few of the many technological devices now utilized by Thomas Davenport Jr. along with the staff at The Davenport Firm:
1. Louisiana Lawyer- Apple App
Thomas Davenport currently has a free application available to download on any smartphone. The application offers an array of assistance for those in any type of legal situation. Users can find an Automobile Accident Tip Checklist, which provides a list of what to do if ever involved in an accident. The application also provides suggestions of what to do if they are being arrested or a suspect in a criminal investigation. In addition, you can find a BAC Calculator, DWI Arrest Information form, a loss/ out of pocket expense log, proof of automobile insurance, it also allows mobile users to capture accident data, and to call 911 or The Davenport Firm directly.

2. Scan Snap S1500M
This model, made by Fujitsu, allows the user to scan any document and convert it to the format needed. In the legal field, there are designated forms that must be completed in certain matters: the Scan Snap S1500M allows users to scan forms and convert them to either a word or excel document. This saves time on the part of the attorney, which in turn saves the client money.
3. Clarity Legal Timeline
This program generates a timeline based on the dates and events the user inputs. Thomas Davenport Jr. utilizes this technology when working on complex matters that involve prescription records, phone records, medical records, and/or bank statements. Once the dates are input the program then generates a timeline, which can be printed and easily interpreted by fellow counsel and judges.
4. Speak Write
This tool allows users to turn their cell phone into a dictation machine. It allows the attorney to speak exactly the letter he/she would like to send to a particular party. After dictating the message, a representative then transcribes the message and it is sent via email to the attorney who can print it directly to his or her letterhead.
5. Appletree Answering Service
This 24-hour phone answering service ensures that clients speak to a live representative any time of the day. When a client calls and leaves a message with the representative, the attorney is automatically notified. This allows Thomas Davenport Jr. to monitor and assure that all client needs are met despite the time of day.
