Legal Technology Provides More Efficient Service

The Kaman Law Firm, P.C. provides a better, more efficient service to its clients by utilizing the latest in legal technology.  Let me give an example.  Here’s the timeline:

  • 9:30AM:  I was informed that I needed a few additional signatures on a filing in a probate matter.  Both individuals lived out-of-state – one was living in Europe.
  • 10:30AM  My client provided me the email addresses of the individuals that needed to sign the document.
  • 11:30AM  I had the documents drafted and prepared for electronic signature, then emailed to the individuals.  SIDE NOTE:  This step probably would have happened sooner, but I was laid out by a bad case of the flu.  My client pointed out that technology hasn’t quite solved that one!
  • Just before 2PM:  I received notification that the documents had been signed by both individuals – including the individual living in Europe, who signed at 9 or 10PM local time from a tablet, smartphone or PC.
  • 3PM:  The signed documents were forwarded to the probate register for filing.
  • 4:30PM:  The probate register informed me that the paperwork was complete and ready for pickup.

Since I had the documents electronically signed, we saved WEEKS of time that would have otherwise been wasted waiting for the mail to come.

It’s not just electronic signatures.

I processed a retainer deposit over the phone, then refunded the leftover funds back to the credit card – instantly.  Last week, I had a 24-hour turnaround on a will-based estate plan for a client that was heading out of town.  This is all made possible by legal technology that assists me process information more efficiently and accurately.

Finally, for any attorneys reading this, Lexicata made the above timeline possible.  I give Lexicata an A+, 5-Stars, etc. for their technology and customer service.  Check it out!
