As I stated earlier, I am a general practitioner in a small town firm. At any one time I have domestic, probate, real estate, criminal, etc. matters as well as real estate abstracts to examine. We also represent several municipalities and government agencies. I have cases for which I am entirely responsible and then cases for which I am responsible for specific tasks but not the overall outcome.
At the moment I only have about 40 open cases, but I also have new projects/tasks come up all the time on cases for which I am not primarily responsible. The largest portion of my cases right now are domestic (divorce/custody), probate and civil litigation. But when my boss has a trial, as he has this week, I have to cover hearings and perform tasks to "put out fires" while he is unavailable. Most of my clients tend to be single matters but we have several government clients that have numerous matters.
Our firm uses Outlook for calendaring (in addition to a master desk calendar) and I synchronize my Palm to the Outlook calendar. That is why I am wanting my system to work with these applications.
