Georgia Law Firm Kenneth S. Nugent P.C. Equips Associates With iPads

ATLANTA - The Law Firm of Kenneth S. Nugent P.C. is upgrading the firm's associates to the iPad 2 in a move to provide quicker and more efficient service to clients. At the same time, the Georgia-based law firm is kicking off a green initiative to cut down on the use of paper in the office and in the field by attorneys, investigators, paralegals and case workers.

The iPad 2, made and distributed by Apple, is a tablet computer. Many consumers use it for email, watching videos and playing games. However, Ken Nugent's forward-thinking legal professionals immediately understood the value of the iPad 2 out in the field. The service is provided on the AT&T wireless network to ensure the broadest coverage area.

Many of Ken Nugent's lawyers are finding the iPad 2 valuable in courtroom situations, too.  Transcripts and depositions can be stored on the device, eliminating the need for the stacks of paperwork and over-sized briefcases of the past. The iPad 2 supports portable document format (PDF), so a Nugent Georgia accident lawyer can mark up pleadings or contracts on the fly, saving even more time for clients.

The Law Firm of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. expanded from the firm's original location in Atlanta to eight Georgia offices in Albany, Augusta, Columbus, Duluth, Macon, Savannah and Valdosta. The firm also has offices in Alabama and Florida, with lawyers licensed to practice in South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.
