    Boston firm makes reference apps for lawyers

    A Boston-based trio of attorneys and developers has developed a suite of apps to replace thick tomes of laws and courtroom rules. Lawyer-Apps.com has released and updated several reference apps for attorneys in fields like bankruptcy law, family law, and tax law.

    The apps, which are available for iOS devices and cost between $4.99 and $29.99, don’t contain cases, but pack thousands of pages of laws, regulations, and courtroom rules into several searchable, hyperlink-heavy apps.

    The company said Tuesday that it had released its family law app, one of several the company has developed along with the Uniform Law Commission, which tries to make state laws consistent. It says it is the only company to have developed an app with the commission.
