Technology offers tremendous cost saving potential to both lawyers and clients. Technology also creates an opportunity for lawyers and law firms to be transparent to their clients. By transparent I mean that the client can have complete access to their digital file online and can see what the lawyer is doing day to day.
At Traverse Legal, we believe that technology has created an opportunity to revolutionize legal practice. We are a paperless, high-tech law office, perhaps one of the most high-tech offices in Michigan. Technology allows us to do many day to day tasks much more quickly. This saves the lawyer time and you money.
Let me give you an example. A lawyer receives a phone call from opposing counsel asking about an ongoing discovery issue, which remains unresolved. In a paper based law firm, that lawyer has to go find all of the correspondence and pleadings relevant to the issue before calling the adverse attorney on the phone. Finding that paper, let alone the file it exist in, takes a lot of time. Lawyers bill you for that time.
In a paperless office, we have complete access to all file materials directly from our laptops. In a matter of seconds, we can pull up each piece of relevant correspondence and each pleading, which relates to the issue. Not only does this make us more efficient, it also makes us more effective. If the other attorney did not take the time to pull out all of the relevant materials, we are automatically at a tremendous advantage. Instead of talking off the cuff, we can cite each and every key fact and case directly from our desktop or laptop computers.
There are hundreds of day to day examples where technology can make a business person, including the lawyer, more efficient and effective. This not only drives legal costs down, but also increases the quality of the representation you receive. If you are not using a law firm committed to the use of technology to innovate legal practice, then you are spending money on legal fees needlessly. Contact Traverse Legal today and find out what high-tech legal service can do for you. If you are not absolutely satisfied with the service we provide and the price for that service, we will discount your bill to any level you find acceptable.
