Why You Need To Start Saying Yes To Technology

By SimpleLaw on 8/20/20 10:15 AM

It isn't easy for anyone but for solo attorneys and small law firms, it's tough to get it all done. Some days feel like you are on the old hamster wheel that won't stop and it's not all spent practicing law. You aren't alone. According to the 2019 State of Small Law Firms Report only about 60% of an attorney's day is actually spent practicing law while the remainder of the day is spent running the firm (managing finances, trying to gain new clients, etc.). All that time and energy just to keep the status quo. Exhausting right?

By SimpleLaw on 8/13/20 10:15 AM

As clients increasingly demand transparency in their cases, law firms are facing some pressure. Clients want to know their case is being handled as efficiently as possible. This has become more evident as clients have become more tech-savvy and have grown used to the efficiency of services used in their daily lives in other sectors (think Amazon, etc.).  So, what does this mean for attorneys? Let's look at the client view to get a better understanding.

The Human Connection and Law

By SimpleLaw on 7/30/20 10:15 AM

Depending on how your state categorized attorneys - as essential or non-essential workers - COVID was either a huge disruption or maybe just a slight change in your work life. But to your clients, it was more than likely a pretty dramatic adjustment.

To Text Or Not To Text

By SimpleLaw on 7/16/20 2:49 PM

We are all on the run these days and always connected. It's super easy to send a text off to any or many contacts. Talk about convenience. But, just because you can doesn't mean you should. But when you do need to communicate, is email always the answer? Probably not. As a person who is all over email - literally that icon with the number in it makes me nuts - I only want email when its absolutely necessary. So, the question remains - to text or not to text. Below are some key areas to consider when making that choice.
