When you’re on vacation, technology can be your friend or foe, depending on how you use it. You can allow yourself to be overwhelmed by e-mail, or you can use technology (free technology) to deal with your clients more effectively.
Free technological solutions are important for solos because you don’t have a law partner who can cover for you when you are away, nor do most of you have a big budget for fancy solutions.

Really.
