IP lawyer in Chicago

Recommendations for an intellectual property lawyer in Chicago? Husband is an independent consultant/software developer in Chicago in need of an IP lawyer for some service agreements/contracts liability discussions.

A simple matter-manager for a small law firm

Can anyone suggest a good, relatively simple open-source or low-cost file/client management program suitable for use by a small law firm? The software should be able to schedule/calendar, manage documents, track tasks/to-dos, and associate all of these things according to particular clients/matters. Something that syncs between machines is a definite plus, as is something that isn't a resource hog. We manage the accounting side separately, so that needn't be a component. [more inside]
