    • How do I organize my document and file management system?
    • How do I keep track of all of the tasks being loaded on my plate? 
    • Where do I find the standard procedures I’m expected to follow when they aren't written down anywhere? 
    • Can I use Microsoft Word more effectively and control complex formatting more easily? 
    • What are the best ways to track and bill every minute of the day?
    • Is my firm missing the technological tools it needs or does it follow old, inefficient protocols?
