Everyone who handles estate administration has a way of dealing with things, often developed over the course of many years, making it all too easy to miss out on new approaches (and technologies) that can simplify this task, eliminating drudgery, minimizing the chance for error, and increasing client satisfaction.
In the beginning, of course, everything was done with pen and paper, but then came the personal computer revolution, with Excel spreadsheets and Word/PDF documents becoming de rigueur. Some lawyers even took it a step further, using general accounting packages such as QuickBooks.
