Solo and small law firms have different pressures than large firms. Although subject to the same rules and oversight they don’t have the same resources to assure compliance, avoid malpractice or focus on marketing. Every one in a small firm is a “utility” player – there are no specialists, everyone contributes to a matter or an activity - as a result communication, coordination and collaboration become the foundation blocks of a good practice.
Add to this the changes in the legal landscape and you have a perfect storm. Legal consumers, whether individuals or corporations have access to vast knowledge before engaging a law firm. Google, US Legal, Legal Zoom, AVVO and other sites provide scoring of lawyers, free legal advice, discounted forms generation, fixed price packages, etc. By the time you talk to your prospective client for the first time they have formed an expectation on what services they need from you and what the cost should be.
Virtual law offices, accessible from mobile devices provide a lower cost of operations, a faster response to clients and fewer billing and communication errors. If this isn’t you its your competitors.
In this hyper competitive market, you need to make the right decisions and choices on the direction of your Practice. And to do that you need information. Information that can only easily come from the correct selection and efficient deployment of good technology.
