Can You Hear Me Now? Mobile Lawyering as a Necessity, not an Option

December 2020 Tech Talk Corner

Let’s face it - family lawyers are “mobile lawyers.”  We are typically not the type of attorneys who sit in an office drafting lengthy contracts all day; rather, we are in meetings, mediation, court, arguing motions, preparing discovery, negotiating complex parenting plans, or holding the hands of a distraught client.  We must be mobile.  It is not always practical to carry a laptop or casefile to every place we go.  At the same time, however, we need to remain on top of our work, or else the volume of unanswered emails alone will cripple us.  Family lawyers need to harness the power of mobile devices - tablets, smartphones, and even smart watches to be efficient.
