One approach to deploying a mobile app is to use a turn-key service to produce an app without much customization. Lane Powell is one firm that has used such a service, JDSupra.

The focus of the firm’s app is firm legal articles, alerts and briefs that are hosted by online repository, JDSupra. The articles are browsable by industry/practices and cover a wide range of areas, including bankruptcy, business law, construction, environmental law, health care, immigration, insurance, and real estate. Readers can contact firm lawyer-writers directly from the app via a form.

Unlike many other general law firm apps, this one does not present information about the firm generally, its attorneys, or its offices. A user may be surprised to download this app and not find that type of information. As far as law firm apps go, this approach is pretty limited. I encourage Lane Powell to use this app as a starting point to enhance the firm’s mobile efforts.
