As the legal industry evolves, clients are increasingly turning to online legal services — particularly for what are perceived as "boilerplate" services such as contracts and wills. Now, most attorneys will tell you that simply purchasing a legal document online from an arm's length service is a bad idea, for many reasons. So, an increasing number of lawyers are confronting the trend by offering their clients the convenience of what are essentially online legal services, but with all the expertise and personal attention of a traditional meeting with your attorney.
San Antonio, Texas estate planning attorney Hugh Spires, Jr. recently jumped to the forefront of the trend when he launched his new website designed by The Modern Firm. Hugh offers all traditional estate planning services. But he does so through cutting-edge methods aided by technology. Clients can initiate a consultation online and, when documents are ready, access them through a secure web portal. For documents requiring a formal signature, the attorney sends careful instructions allowing the client to properly execute the signature wherever the client is located.
Of course, the trend toward meeting clients where they are isn't just sweeping the Internet. Lawyers like Hugh also literally meet clients where they are, making home visits rural-family-doctor style particularly for older clients or those with physical limitations. In Hugh's case, he is happy to travel to clients within 50 miles of San Antonio to complete paperwork and explain a client's documents.
We at The Modern Firm have a passion for helping small law firms navigate the evolving, ever competitive legal field by establishing distinctive, personal niches instead of competing with faceless, price-based legal services. Identifying and promoting what you do best allows for a robust, future-oriented practice serving clients whose needs are a good fit for your strengths. Moreover, it allows small firms and solo attorneys to enjoy the flexible lifestyle that drew many of them away from larger firms.
Congrats to Hugh on his new website and new endeavor!
