What kind of client file system is best for your firm?

Illinois Bar Journal recently had a nice mix of attorneys respond to this question. An interesting range of responses...we concur with the "I don't use file numbers" answer...ooops didn't realize the piece was password protected. It's in the August 2007 issue if you can get your hands on a copy.

To Summarize:

Not to oversimplify but essentially most people either filed alphabetically or numerically. Within those two classification types some people suggested using file colors for particular types of cases. A number of people said certain case management software packages sort of create the numbering system for you.

I think if you're solo it's simple...when you start having multiple attorneys with certain clients being "owned" by a certain lawyer then it gets more difficult.

That link led me to a username/password request. Is the article available to anyone, or could you summarize the different systems?
