The two women announced they were seeking a $150,000 investment in exchange for a 10% stake in the company they co-founded called HelloPrenup. The digital platform helps couples create prenuptial agreements by filling out in-depth questionnaires and comprehensive financial disclosures instead of having to go to a lawyer.

"Young couples are getting prenups more and more. But the traditional process of getting a prenup is expensive, time-consuming and a bit taboo," Jaffe said on the Shark Tank episode that aired Nov. 12. "But with HelloPrenup, the process is as easy as 1,2,3."

She also shared that a prenup on helloprenup.com costs $599, while the average cost when attorneys are involved is typically $5,000. Rodgers added that the addressable prenup market is valued at more than $500 million.

It's not got a lot of the bells and whistles you might be used to. What it has got is a whole load of legal types including solicitors, barristers, law students and legal PAs, a whole bunch of people who want to meet them, and you, pecking like a magpie through their profiles. If you're a lawyer, it's finally a chance to trade off your status. You slogged through law school, you scored a great gig, but today the only people you see are either telling you to work all weekend, or trying to avoid you telling them to work all weekend. Now is your time. Meet other lawyers and share your hopes, dreams, fears, bodies and favourite judgments. Or, meet non-lawyers who can appreciate what you bring to the table, such as, well, everything about you, surely. 

Lawyr is also for anyone who's interested in dating someone in the legal community.

A powerful hacking tool called Pegasus, sold to governments around the world by the Israeli surveillance company NSO Group, has been used to spy on journalists, human rights activists, the fiancée of the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and others, according to a months-long investigation by 17 news organizations, including FRONTLINE.

The investigation of the spyware was coordinated by the journalism nonprofit Forbidden Stories, with technical support from Amnesty International's Security Lab. Forbidden Stories and Amnesty had access to a leak of more than 50,000 records of phone numbers concentrated in countries known to be NSO clients. NSO has disputed the findings of the reporting and said it will investigate all credible claims of misuse and take appropriate action.

FRONTLINE is producing a documentary with Forbidden Stories. We are linking here to major stories from our partner news outlets.

The latest on legal document management software--ABA Journal

| No Comments
BY NICOLE BLACK

***

One of the top challenges faced by law firms as they shifted to a remote workforce has been the ability to access case-related information. The accessibility of documents, in particular, has presented issues for law firms. This has become especially pressing in recent weeks as federal and state courts have begun to, out of necessity, mandate the e-filing of digital documents for most legal matters.

As law firms establish processes to create digital documents, they then need to be able to store them online in a location that is easily accessible by all firm employees. That's where cloud-based document management software created with law firms in mind comes in.

Google Maps Voice Guidance is Great for Walking City Streets

| No Comments

Years ago, if you wanted to look like a tourist in any city, you'd walk around holding a map and looking confused. These days, you just have to walk around holding your smartphone and look confused.

It can be difficult to use Google Maps navigation without looking like a clueless tourist. Thankfully, Google has introduced a feature called Google Maps Voice that actually speaks the directions to you while you're walking. Combine it with AR Navigation in Google Maps and you'll be walking all over unfamiliar neighborhoods like a pro.

Review: Courtroom Objections -- trial assistance on your iPhone - iPhone J.D.

| No Comments
Jeff Richardson:

***

Over nine years ago, I reviewed an app created by Houston attorney Anthony Shorter called Courtroom Objections.  Shorter reached out to me to tell me that he had recently updated his app, and it has been so long since I mentioned the app on iPhone J.D. that I thought it was time for another look. 

The purpose of the app is to provide you with a quick guide to making and responding to objections in court.  The app includes a list of common objections and responses.  I think that the app would be most useful for those who are relatively new litigators, but any attorney who tries cases could use this app.

F-Droid - Free and Open Source Android App Repository

| No Comments

SCIENCE

F-Droid is an alternative app store for Android devices that contains exclusively Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Every program description includes a clear description of the license terms and links to the program source code. When available, there are also links to the upstream issue tracker for reporting bugs in the program directly to the software maintainers. If a program contains anti-features that product sellers charge users to disable, like user tracking, advertising, or the use of non-free network services, these will be flagged prominently in program descriptions. In addition to accessing the F-Droid store over the internet, F-Droid users may also share programs with each other in peer-to-peer fashion over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Android Beam. F-Droid has been recommended by the Free Software Foundation Europe and the GNU Project, a crowd-sourced effort focused on developing free software. The Docs section of the F-Droid website is a helpful place for prospective users to begin, with a Getting Started section with several FAQs and a step-by-step tutorial demonstrating how to use the program.

For many years, word processing tools were premises-based, and there were very few options. Most firms used either WordPerfect or Microsoft Word. Over time, Word began to dominate, in large part because it was the preferred tool in other industries.

Then, with the emergence of cloud computing tools a little over a decade ago, things began to change. Affordable--and sometimes even free--word processing tools are now available that are accessible online, providing much-needed mobility and flexibility. Lawyers can log on from any internet-enabled device and access their word processing software in the cloud. And using that software, they can create documents that can be stored online in one convenient location.

Even better--there are collaboration tools built right into the software, allowing lawyers to work together in real time. These online collaboration features make it easier than ever to streamline the document creation process, saving both time and money.

The Google Chrome web browser has become so common around the world that you may not give a second thought to just using that and not thinking much about your alternatives. And to be fair, Google works hard to maintain its edge. But the stalwart Mozilla Firefox (download for iOS or Androidhas greatly improved since its Quantum overhaul began in 2017, and its maker continues to push envelopes of its own.

Is it time to reconsider Chrome as your default web browser? Let's put them both through the gauntlet and find out who comes through in one piece.

iPhone tip: I'm on my way - iPhone J.D.

| No Comments
Jeff Richardson,

***
In an ideal world, you will always get exactly where you are supposed to be at the time that you are expected to be there.  In real life, delays happen.  Perhaps you got tied up at the office, in court, in a deposition that went longer than you expected, etc.  So sometimes you need to let someone know that you are running late but you are on the way there.  You can always send someone an email or a text that says exactly that, but the iPhone gives you some other options that might be even more useful for you.

New Medicare App Tells Users What's Covered--AARP

| No Comments
by Dena Bunis, AARP

***

If you're not sure whether Original Medicare will pay for a particular test or medical service your doctor says you need, the answer could be as close as a new app on your phone or other mobile device. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) unveiled the new tool called "What's Covered" on Monday.

It is available in GooglePlay and the AppleApp Store. You can look for a particular service or test by typing a description into the search bar, and the app allows you to browse all services via an alphabetized list of everything from acupuncture to yearly wellness visits. It also provides a list of preventative services that Medicare pays for, and a help feature lets you call the Medicare hotline (800-Medicare; 800-633-4227) or takes you to the full Medicare.gov website.

Plaintiffs who claim Pacer fees are illegally excessive are getting lots of support in amicus briefs filed in their pending federal appeal.

Among the amici are seven retired federal judges who argue that Pacer should be free, report the New Republicand Law.com. The judges include former Circuit Judge Richard Posner of the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The judges' brief argues that docket-access fees reduce judicial transparency and the legitimacy of the courts. Other retired federal judges filing the brief include Shira Scheindlin, W. Royal Furgeson and Nancy Gertner.

Other amici supporting the plaintiffs include former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, the original sponsor of the law at issue in the suit; several legal research platforms; media organizations; the American Civil Liberties Union; and the Cato Institute.

Pacer cost slightly more than $3 million to operate in 2016, but it brought in more than $146 million in fees, according to the New Republic article.

Challenging a parking ticket with the ParkMobile app - iPhone J.D.

| No Comments


iPhone J.D. is published by Jeff Richardson, an attorney in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

I fought the law, and my app won.  Here is my story.

For many years now, there have been systems in place in many cities allowing you to pay for a parking spot using an iPhone app.  I live in New Orleans, and the system that we use here is called ParkMobile, which operates in 350 cities in the United States.  It is convenient that you can pay for a parking spot before you even leave your car, it is helpful to see how much time you have on the meter even when you are far away from your car, and perhaps best of all, you can add more time to the parking meter no matter where you are.  There have been multiple times when I have been in a deposition or a meeting which ran long and I was able to quickly add more time to the meter without having to go all the way back to my car.  The system works so well that it has almost seemed too easy, making me wonder if simply using the app really would protect me from getting a parking ticket.
