Review

Anders has put out one of the best books on organization for lawyers. --KBA Journal Book Review

This book is a useful resource for attorneys interested in achieving a more organized and supportive work environment, and as such, is an appropriate addition to any law library. . . . The Organized Lawyer succeeds in reminding readers of the importance of maintaining an organized work environment and provides a general road map on the journey from clutter to order. --AALL Spectrum

[The Organized Lawyer] is filled with step-by-step processes to make your workspace and, by extension, you, more efficient . . . This is a short, pleasant read and set up so you can skip around (as Anders encourages the reader to do) to find the stuff that interests you. But, most of all, it makes you conscious of the need to be organized and stay organized so that you can work better. --Chicago Lawyer

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a guide to organization, this book merely scratches the surface, and for individuals who are already at least somewhat organized, this book will provide little, if any, real guidance. While the author discusses topics ranging from organizational types to file management to office layout to personal appearance, none of these topics receive any in-depth treatment, and the book feels like a survey course in field of organization. For those struggling with clutter, this might be a helpful place for you to start, but you will certainly want to look further.

I bought this book hoping for a practical guide for setting up an organized office. For example, what are some good ways of organizing client files into subfolders? What are some good "tickler system" setups to make sure you are following up appropriately with client matters and not missing deadlines? What kinds of office policies should you have in place to help support staff stay organized in a consistent way? Be forewarned: this book contains NONE of that type of information. To say that it is superficial is an understatement. It contains such gems of advice as the suggestions that you use attractively colored folders and organize folders by topic, keep proprietary information out of plain view, keep a notebook to record billables, and buy wooden hangers for your clothes! Really??? The first step I will take towards decluttering my office is to get rid of this book. Utter fluff.

Lawyers, by practice, are swarmed with paperwork. "The Organized Lawyer" is a guide for practitioners of law to getting organized in one's firm, the better to deal with the sea of paperwork that they commonly face. Covering everything from making a better home out of one's office to keeping the books balanced, using electronic devices, and more, "The Organized Lawyer" is strongly recommended for any lawyer who does more organization than actual work.
