Start the New Year Successfully
Our Partners and staff came up with several resolutions that will help you and your law firm get off to a good start in 2015. 

Some of these resolutions related to law office technology. Others are applicable to small businesses in general. Finally, there are a handful of personal resolutions that may help you become healthier and happier.

January Speaking Engagements
Our Affinity Partners and Consultants start the New Year braving the winter weather (and a couple of warm Florida dates) to bring you the best in law office technology from coast to chilly coast this month.  

FREE YourBusiness - Law Firm Assessment Webinar, January 23
As a business, a law firm is really no different than most other closely held companies. You sell your prospective services, you perform your service and your firm is paid. Your business takes in revenue, meets its expenses and hopefully has something left over for the owners of the business to enjoy. Re-read our recent article on Law Firm Financial Assessments.

Then get the details live by attending our FREE one-hour webinar January 23 on how to assess your law firm.  Register HERE today.
Coming in February - Client Appreciation Month

Here at Affinity, we like to think we are "Improving the lives of our Clients, One Efficiency at a Time."   You, Our Clients, are improving our lives, too.  Each and every day, we are lucky enough to talk to some of the most respected attorneys in the country and the exceptionally capable and dedicated firm administrators and office managers that run those offices.    


To show our gratitude, we have named February Client Appreciation Month.  Starting February 1st, there will be a ton of free training opportunities, "techie" giveaways, free webinars, products and services.  Keep posted on our social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) and in our blog and newsletter for more details.  In the meantime, thanks for being Our Client.

MS Word 2013 Tip of the Month - Visit the Apps for Office Store 
Really? I didn't know there was an app store for MS Office. Well there is. And if you are using Word 2013, it has some useful and mostly free apps to enhance the way you use MS Word in your law practice. There are also apps for the 2013 versions of Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.

For help with legal writing in Word, check out the AP Stylebook (guide to usage, spelling, and punctuation), EasySyn (a dictionary of English synonyms), and Irregardless (a style guide that discourages pretense). Once added to Word, these apps appear under Apps>My Apps  in the Insert tab on the Ribbon.

Introducing Affinity Consulting Group's Client Services Team
Serving our clients as efficiently and effectively as possible has always been a priority for each of us at Affinity.
