The Proliferation and Suitability of Apple’s iPad in Litigation Practice
By Stephen Goethel and Chad D. Engelhardt Goethel Engelhardt, PLLC
Our boutique medical negligence firm is one of the many that has added the Apple iPad to its lawyers’ set of tools. The iPad has invaded litigation to become a common sight in client interviews, depositions, motion hearings, and trials. With the right combination of software and accessories (especially a wireless keyboard), many lawyers have found the iPad to be a suitable laptop replacement. And for good reason. The iPad is light, thin, and has an elegant form factor. It combines simplicity and ease of use with a brilliant display and exceptional battery life.
Like many litigators with state and nationwide practices, we spend quite a bit of time on the road. From court hearings hundreds of miles away, to expert witness depositions thousands of miles away, the iPad has proven itself time and again. In fact, even though the attorneys in our firm are issued both PC laptops and Apple MacBook Air computers, the iPad is now regularly being used preferentially while traveling. A set of good noise canceling headphones, like those from Bose, are an appreciated luxury.
