Coye Law Chronicle
Our Office, Our Families, Our Clients ... We Work to Make a Difference in People’s Lives
SO DON’T SETTLE FOR A STONE-AGE LAW PRACTICE It’s Not 1918 I’ve always been the type of attorney who enjoys getting to know my clients. If I walk by somebody in the waiting room of our office, you can bet I’ll stop and say hello. While there’s no substitute for these face-to-face meetings, I understand that our 24/7, interconnected world doesn’t always allow for that. With advanced technology, physical distance shouldn’t be a barrier to getting the representation you need. — I recently held one while I was in Iceland, for example — and we’re always looking for new ways to implement tech to increase efficiency. Ideas that would’ve been regarded as science fiction even a decade or two ago are now genuine possibilities. I believe it’s a firm’s responsibility to use all the tools at their disposal to provide the best service for their clients.
Take videoconferencing software as an example. The very phrase sounds ridiculous, making you think you’ll need a video camera and a professional crew to participate in one. Only a few years back, that would’ve been the case. Now, the vast majority of people have a videoconferencing device on their person at all times. It’s called a smartphone. I prefer videoconferencing to traditional phone calls for a couple of reasons. First, you have the chance to pick up on the subtleties of body language that you’ll never get from audio alone. Second, it forces everyone to sit down and focus on a meeting rather than trying to chat while doing something else. You may not be able to meet in person, but you should still be fully present for our discussion. Closing this physical distance with technology is especially important because our clients’ lives don’t stop in the event of an accident. You may be in the hospital or dealing with a million other things.
Making the time to visit our office isn’t always possible. Technology allows you to get the best representation in a way that suits your needs. For us, it’s an essential component in doing our jobs as well as we can.
Our office has always prided itself on being technologically adept. We had our first website in 1996, making us one of the very first firms in the nation to be on the internet. In 2009, a few years before electronic signatures became usable on a broad scale, I had another revelation. At that time, gas was pushing three dollars a gallon. Having clients from far and wide drive to the office routinely was inconvenient and expensive. To get around this nuisance, we started sending documents, along with return envelopes, via FedEx. You might think of that as old-school now, but it was revolutionary at the time. And we’ve only taken things further since then.
Your Lawyer Should WANT to Use the Best Tools to Help You
To put it bluntly, we live in 2018. There are some law firms still using paper files and fax machines. You shouldn’t have to settle for a law office that makes you feel like it’s 1918. If you need something from Amazon, you can have it delivered in less than 24 hours. Our military and law enforcement members, who are the best in the world, benefit from taking advantage of the best tools to do their job. Why should the legal profession be any different?
