In her book Minding Your Own Business: The Solo and Small Firm Lawyer’s Guide to a Profitable Practice (ABA, 2010), Ann Guinn writes, “Capturing your time as you move through the day is the only way to know that you are being fair to your clients and fair to yourself with your billings.” Why guess how much time you have spent, or reconstruct time by looking back at your calendar or file notes, when you can accurately track your time as you work? For most lawyers, the usual timekeeping setting is in an office, at a desk, with a computer. But what about your timekeeping when you are away from the office? Today, thanks to a broad range of affordable apps and online services, it is possible for lawyers to continue good timekeeping habits—capturing their time electronically while they are working on a given task—from virtually anywhere in the world.
