Organize your electronic files

Last week, I offered suggestions on how to find electronic documents saved on your computer. Organization should go a step further, though, and you should have some sort of system in place to save documents in logical places. The Google trick won’t always be there for you — you might change firms and computers, your computer could give you the blue screen of death, or you might want to copy a lot of documents at a time without having to search for them individually. This is my electronic folder system, as well as a sampling of what I use each folder/subfolder for. Much of this relates to a personal injury law practice, so not everything will be useful for every lawyer.  But, it is a good system that allows me to find samples, research, and to generally keep track of what I've done in the past.
