HOW IT WORKS
"But I have hotkeys for that..."
Here's the thing: hitting two or three keys is always going to be slower and more distracting than hitting one key.
Setting them all up is a pain. And the LegalBoard never gets reset.
Plus, many of the LegalBoard functions (including the § symbol) also work in email.
The LegalBoard has over 35 preset legal functions; we doubt you have that many hotkeys.
don't take our word for it...
Ronald Chichester, Council Member of the Computer & Technology Section of the Texas Bar
LegalBoard is a full-featured keyboard with number pad. The fit and finish of the keyboard is excellent. The keystrokes are not stiff, and the keyboard has a nice tactile feel. The extras, however, set it apart from the competition.
Robert Ambrogi, Above The Law
How is it that nobody thought of this before? It just makes it much easier to do keystrokes that lawyers have to do on a regular basis.

WHO ARE WE?
The dorky guy in the suit? That would be Brian H. Potts, Pro-Boards’ founder, himself a partner at the large national law firm Perkins Coie.
The team at Pro-Boards LLC is composed of lawyers and engineers. Like you, the Pro-Boards’ lawyers have spent long days and nights writing briefs for clients. And, maybe also like you, we’ve wished for a keyboard that could keep up with the speed of our thinking.
We grew tired of having to look for the section symbol and of having to type the same words over and over. So, we brought some legal minds together – and teamed up with our engineer friends – and the LegalBoard was born.
