When Michael McCready first began practicing law, he was a solo attorney doing everything on his own. “At the beginning of my career, when I didn’t have many cases, I was able to keep everything in my head – clients, dates, facts and other relevant information,” said Michael. “But as my practice grew, so did the amount of information and it quickly became too much for me to handle on my own. I hired a secretary to help, but she quickly became overwhelmed as well.”
