What Attorneys Must Do to Survive in a Digital Age


Episode Summary:

Today’s law firms are not immune to the constant changes in modern day technology. Clients have more options, more resources, more knowledge, and to be blunt-- they have the Internet. If they do not like the way they were greeted, the kind of services you offer, or the way your documents look, clients can (and most likely will) move onto the next attorney who meets their standards. To ensure your firm’s success, position yourself with proven legal marketing strategies, secure law office software, and sophisticated, client-friendly closing techniques to turn your consultation into a long-term client.

In this legal podcast, Michael Chasin, CEO of Lexicata, and host Patrick Carlson, JD, LLM, discuss why law firms need to ditch the Rolodex and go digital. They discuss the most common mistakes made in law firms, best attorney software to incorporate into your practice, how to decipher and optimize the unique legal sales cycle, and how to engage with your target audience from the moment they need you.
