Do you Skype?

Do you Skype?

Over the years, I’ve represented clients in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Washington, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and the list goes on.  All of these clients had several things in common.  They all had cases in my jurisdiction and needed representation, and I never met any of them face-to-face.  With the exception of one client, I never even knew what some of these clients looked like – I only knew the sound of their voice over the phone.  Until now… I like to think of myself as being on the cutting edge of technology, and although Skype has been around […]

When I opened my first law office in Florida in 2005, the idea of going paperless wasn’t really an option.  Today, however, not only is it an option, but it is a lot easier to do than it was 5 years ago.  The benefits to you as a client are immense… for starters: Once your case is completed I can copy your entire casefile to a CD for you to take with you If you lose the CD, and call me in 10 years looking for that final judgment that you misplaced, I will be able to pull it up […]
