I’m a sole practitioner devoted to litigation primarily representing clients who get into accidents due to the negligence of other people or companies.
A lot of lawyers never go into courtrooms and are only comfortable drafting documents in their office, but I get bored by that and love being on trial. It’s exciting to me, like riding a roller coaster. I enjoy taking on the challenge of winning a case for my clients, and I always give each of them individualized and focused attention.
I need to maintain close communications with clients to help them best reach their goals, so texting was an obvious go-to for me. People look for lawyers on their cell phones now and want to have the option to text them. I knew that if I wanted to draw in more leads, and I needed to find a texting solution like Text Request because so many young people rely on texting.
I tried many different texting tools, but didn’t feel like any of them were user-friendly. Text Request stood out because it was so simple and straightforward. I intuitively could figure out how things worked without any help, but still had the option to get training if needed.
I love that Text Request’s SMS Chat gives potential clients a way to contact me directly from my website. Many people would much rather do that than sit at their computer to draft an email or play phone tag. Most of my clients don’t even check their emails until the end of the day, but they’ll check their texts hourly. We can get work done so much faster by collaborating over text.
I also love being able to use Text Request from both my phone and desktop. The mobile app is a great tool to have in trial. If I happen to need something from one of my assistants, I can text them instead of making a phone call and annoy the judge.
Texting is a great tool for lawyers, especially in litigation. You have to be able to reach clients fast when you discover you need something for a case, and Text Request makes that possible.
