A properly organized 3-ring binder is crucial for many businesses, but even more so for a legal office. Lawyers use these types of legal binders to organize different cases they are working on. These binders are a crucial part of your appearance as an attorney, paralegal or law student.
Disorganization, papers being misfiled or scouring desk tops can create the image that your firm is unattractive, unqualified, and sloppy. This is not how anyone in this realm of work wants to appear. Especially because of the seriousness surrounding this industry. Someone’s freedom or life can be on the line.
There are many tools on the market to help organize legal binders, but are they the best solution? The experts at MyLitBag have gathered their thoughts and experience on the different products available to provide you with the answers.
This is an online company that sells a wide variety of binders, but with no real innovations or special features. They have different colors and are able to customize the colors or design. However, this doesn’t solve the real problems with legal binders.
In the end, they are still just messy binders. Over time the rings stop close properly and the outer part begins to fall apart. Papers get snagged on the rings, and overall it is not the best solution.
This is a similar online company that offers a variety of legal binders for all purposes. They aren’t customizable, but mostly black and bulky looking. The real problem is that binders by nature are just bulky and cumbersome.
Additionally, once you buy these expensive binders, how do you keep them safe and secure? Legal documents can be sensitive and need to be stored somewhere protected.
Many legal professionals choose to store these legal binders for long periods of time in case there is a malpractice claim. Over the years, these documents really pile up. Some law offices have storage rooms that are full of old files.
Staples, Office Max, Big Box Retailers
Even the big box retailers have many of these supplies. They have all the same binders and supplies that many of these other businesses provide. Therein lies the problem within this industry, and there is very little difference between these businesses and their products.
Legal Store is another online business that specializes in legal filings, bags, supplies, stationary, and furniture. It’s a diverse e-commerce business that has a ton of products. However, so many of these products would become obsolete with an electronic solution.
