Advocacy: tips to reduce the use of paper in the office

Many independent lawyers and smaller law firms could benefit from not using the paper, but do not. That’s because it oppresses with the idea that this will result in a number of new tasks to their already troubled “to do lists”.

Or because, perhaps, they are not sure about how to proceed and delay the implementation of a new system of processes that could really help improve your efficiency and reduce your costs. Whatever the reason, the fact is that many law firms are not yet fully adept to the phenomenon called “paperless”.

Contrary to what many think, paperless advocacy is cheap. Most lawyers do not know, but already have digital document storage capacity, enough to store your files. Because reducing the amount of physical file, the law firm also do not have to pay an archivist or spend time paralegal – that could be focused on more important issues.

With files, scanned documents and processes, you can still store your files online in a secure and available environment, like a cloud, for example, and can access any document when and where you need it.

Consider only scan the issues that lie ahead

Do not bother to scan files of existing cases – 9 out of 10 cases will you proportional minimum difference if they are in the digital environment: in this case will only save floor space with storage. Start scanning each new case to open or take over and, within about 6 months, his office will have an organized workflow and virtually paperless. If later disputes or issues are identified already closed that are important to be saved and can help you in the future, scan them and add in a specific folder for that file type.

Adopt a good management system, whether for office or for documents

One of the hardest things to change the working model for the practice of paperless, is figuring out how to organize the electronic files. We recommend the adoption of a document management system or a robust software that covers this function. This type of adoption is very useful for law firms, especially those of medium or large that have many employees, customers, partners and suppliers.

The key to the success of a paperless routine is to create some rules that everyone involved to follow and build a pattern.

Our tips are:

  1. Consider creating a filing system “tree”, the closest to the paper-based systems you always used. In practice, this means: create a folder for each client, subfolders for each individual issue that you are caring for that client and other “sub-sub” for things like matches, discoveries, trivia and the like.
  2. The great secret is in how you name and organizes the files, documents and processes that scans. It can even reduce the need to create subfolders and form very large and complex trees. Our suggestion: Name each document with the date you or created or received (year-month-day followed by a short description of the document content). This way, your documents will always be in chronological order within the file.
  3. Establish a policy for scanning all incoming documents, create an effective set of file naming conventions and present organizational and technical standards of the scanned files to colleagues. You will save a lot of time and significantly reduce your frustration looking for lost documents.

Conclusion

Following routine paperless is easier than ever. Be aware that all are prone to failure, but commit yourself to change and covers all involved. Thus, in addition to contributing to the environment, you will make your work more productive and therefore best seen by your customers.

Tips for you to face the bureaucracy to open a law firm

Imagine: you just graduated in law, or is already acting as an independent lawyer for some time, however, his real dream is to set up a law firm. However, this dream ends up turning into a nightmare when you nudge the bureaucracy and the huge amount of paperwork and documents necessary to get your office running legally. Discouraging, is not it?

Fortunately, you do not need to give up your dream because of all the paperwork. Not to be one of the victims of the paperwork, you can find out in advance some details that will certainly be faced at the time of the decision, so that you can already start thinking about what to do to take the most appropriate way.

Review the roles of the partners

It is essential to keep in mind, even before the office opening, not only who will act on your side, but also the responsibilities of each of the partners of the project. In addition to giving greater organization to the office of the table, and to facilitate the division of profits and internal affairs, such a measure can also improve the company’s efficiency, since every active lawyer in the office can provide specific skills and abilities that can be well used in favorable times.

Sometimes a lawyer is excellent in attracting customers, while another is highly skilled in financial management and site management, for example. Thus, the definition of the roles and functions of each partner will be important to facilitate compliance with the offered services and enhance the firm’s growth. In short: if each professional to focus on the tasks that it is more specialized and skilled, the office of the growth will be right.

Set your area of expertise

In addition to the roles of each partner, it is appropriate to demarcate the work area from the preferences of each. The generalization can lead to certain legal issues being treated in shallow manner. The legal market tends to value the expertise in previously defined areas. Having experience in some disciplines will lead to greater reputation and valuation of office professionals. So again it is important to note: the focus should be on the skills and competencies of each active lawyer in the office.

Choose the location and build infrastructure

The office must be installed in a room or building in which you and your partners can afford, right? However, you must also take other things into consideration, such as the accessibility and comfort of customers. Consider investing in small “goodies” such as snacks, comfortable furniture, television and of course the indispensable coffee. The building must also be well chosen. After all, even the appearance and location of the drapery are relevant to attract customers. Your audience, or the people you want to reach, are extremely important, so consider the visibility of the site and its vicinity.

also reflect on the set of equipment and devices – computers, desks and chairs, files and office supplies, among others – that should have so that the services are met as best as possible. An internet service is essential, as well as devices that can connect to the network and enable efficient work, however, not forget also space to place a bookshelf with books or files legal processes, for example.

Conclusion

Dealing with the bureaucracy can be a tedious task, but it should not get in the way of your dreams! Just a little patience and organization, that soon his office will be operating in a legal and regular manner, and only waiting for more customers!

Tips Marketing and Customer Uptake in Advocacy

The law is considered a public utility function and is not a commercial activity. That’s because the lawyer’s work is indispensable to justice, and therefore its notorious public importance. For this reason, the Statute Ethics forbids us to make advertising, as would a private company.

On the one hand, this prohibition ensures that the law is not confused with trade, reserving certain prestige to the function and reserving the possible banality arising from market laws. On the other hand, often end up stunting advocate it widely, making it difficult, especially the inclusion of new lawyers in the labor market.

However, the disclosure in the law is not prohibited. What vetoes is advertising, marketing the lawyer’s function, or even trivializing justice. What remains, then, is to study the forms of disclosure that we are allowed, and that can help many Nobles colleagues to increase their clientele. And of course, how noble it is our role, and as much as this has utility, we lawyers also need money, since we paid bills like anyone else.

As I said above, it is important that the customer see as an authority figure. And I do not speak in authority as subordination or hierarchy, but as an authority on the subject for which you were hired.

The client hired him to file a Business Rules? It is important that he trusts in his work and see it as an authority in this matter. If you are a criminal lawyer, it is important that the customer see as an authority on criminal law, and so on.

That way, publishing articles on websites, magazines, etc. is also a form of disclosure. Just as websites and blogs, many people can find your article through a search on the internet, and if they like what they read, they can look for him to solve a problem related to that article.

Again, invest in publications in their fields. Besides having more security to write about these matters, you are investing to capture customers in these areas.

There are many websites, as the Jus Brazil, in which to publish articles and gain market visibility. Even among other lawyers this is good, as often happens to a customer looking for us to an area with which we do not work, and then indicate a colleague to do so.

Advocacy Support / Lawyer Correspondent

One way to enter the labor market as a lawyer is to start working with advocacy support, that is, as a correspondent lawyer. There are many websites on the internet where you can make your registration as a correspondent

is a good way also to disclose, once you get to attend forums, notaries, and sometimes to make audiences for large offices or other co-workers, and thus get to know people and entering slowly in the middle legal in your city. It is important and advisable to maintain good relations with other lawyers, for reasons I have explained, since lawyers also indicate colleagues to customers. Plus it is always good to have around most experienced attorneys who can assist us in our doubts, as always we face many questions throughout our career, especially at the beginning.

 Making contacts:

Making contacts is one of the best forms of disclosure, because the more people you meet, the more the chances of being approached by someone. Try to meet other legal professionals in your town, make friends with other lawyers, with scribes, and even judges, prosecutors, public defenders. As I said above, meet other professionals is good in every way, including to exchange legal experiences, especially if they are experienced professionals you. We can always learn a lot from our colleagues.

But beyond people’s legal environment, make contact with potential customers is also an excellent idea. If you work with business law, get to know entrepreneurs in their region. A co-worker told me that obtained two salaried customers after meeting them at social events, such as company barbecues.

Customer service:

If you already have the client, it is a great start! But you need to keep the customer, and I will remember the image that you spend is very important. Always try to behave in a professional and serious way. It does not mean you can not relax consultation with a joke, or may not be a nice person, but pass seriousness to treat your customer’s problem. Feel that the lawyer is an affordable and friendly person is good, but above all the customer wants to feel that the lawyer is taking his problem seriously, and that he can leave everything in the lawyer’s hand. Trust is the key word!

Your client needs to trust you. Be clear, do not promise earned causes or anything else you can not keep. It is very important to explain to the customer how the judicial process, give an estimate, albeit over, the time it can take to solve the problem, and show accessible to all customer inquiries. And always be an authority on that subject. You can even become customer friendly, but when they are trying to work, you need to be an authority for him.

The customer service is essential because a satisfied customer will indicate your services to others for sure. Similarly, a dissatisfied customer will criticize your services to others. And they say the laws of marketing that a satisfied customer brings another customer; a dissatisfied customer away two. So always be the best professional to get be. It is his name that is at stake, and your career we’re talking about.

Visit cards

It may seem silly and, among many dissemination methods known in the Legal Marketing, the business card ends up even forgotten, but it is a valid way and often makes the difference.

It is quite common that we encounter situations like discussing someone

any legal matter at family parties or gatherings of friends, or possibly even pull issue with someone at the bus stop, in line at the bank, and even in unusual places, such as at the bar.

Then you said that is a lawyer and the person is interested in your service. Of course you can pass your phone number to the person, but it is quite common to be asked “do you have a card to give me?”.

And even if we can just pass the phone number it is much more professional when you have to hand a business card with professional and serious aspect.

Certainly the customer, especially if you find yourself in big trouble, it will take into consideration a lawyer who delivered a professional card than a lawyer who has just passed the phone number or office.

4 Content Marketing Tips for Lawyers

Many law firms disclose content on the Internet, but some have a strategic role in this task. Content marketing has become something as vital for companies and organizations, which was elevated to a major (if not the main) Marketing strategies for the Internet. For lawyers, it appears as an opportunity to turn the result of an intellectual activity (content) in a form of prospecting ethically customers.

Content marketing is the strategic dissemination of useful and relevant content to a defined audience, in order to engage him with his publications, pursuing different marketing objectives: customer acquisition, brand building, customer relationship management with customers, etc.

Engagement is measured, in general, through its own metrics of digital channels: Tanned, comments, shares, markings, access to your pages, number of people on your list who opened their e-mails, etc.

For Law, content marketing is not only mentioned, but seems to be the ideal, given the restrictions placed advertising in the Code of Ethics and Discipline

It is ideal because it is averse to excessive ads, self-promotional strategies and spamming. Content marketing requires truly useful information to help people. It is a kind of consent approach, since it delivers content only those who look for it, without impositividade traditional advertising.

Of course it is not any content to be able to engage the public. Because it is an engagement strategy, planning and care of certain details are essential to achieve significant results. Follow our 4 content for lawyers marketing tips.

  1. DO NOT DELIVER CONTENT FOR PUBLIC WRONG

It does not help disseminate content if the target audience for which it is intended is not very well defined. To paraphrase Lewis Carroll, if you do not know where you want to go, whatever path it takes.

By tracing the profile of your target audience (the “persona” of your content), you define the character of its content. Different profiles will generate different content. For example, construction workers in search of their labor rights will be interested in labor law in a different way business owners seeking to reduce their labor liabilities.

  1. WITHOUT A GOOD CALL NO PLAYER

Another important aspect is the call, ie, the elements used to draw attention. These are the titles of images, short phrases used for posts in social networks.

Even if your content is very good, you should take into account that the Internet user is rushed, impatient and very distracted. A bright Unaccompanied phrase a good image or video can go unnoticed in the whirlwind of information that is the Internet.

Look build flashy titles a scannable text to facilitate a first reading, nothing too long to put off the reader, not so short that discredits the possibility of a useful and relevant content.

  1. MAKE YOUR DIGITAL CONTENT IN MULTIMEDIA

The Internet has become increasingly visual. This will require the ability to produce multimedia content. Not just text; It is fundamental an image, a video, an audio recording, an infographic, etc. Multimedia formats are unlimited and challenge the creativity of the lawyer.

In social networks, multimedia content call much attention. This means that if your post is not accompanied by a picture or video, the number of people who will notice it is much lower.

  1. GIVE YOUR BRAND IDENTITY

Something that calls a qualified public attention is the visual identity of its contents. You can get it with a trademark in your posts, a frame with your logo, a specific type of image, a recurring color.

This will help Internet users to identify their content, as well as being an excellent way of marketing branding.

also seeks an affinity between the iconography of images and the profile of the chosen audience. For example, if this is not a sophisticated profile and intelligentsia, of no use to post images of works of art because they do not draw their attention.

6 Tips to increase productivity of the law firm

Tip 1 – Ask yourself: “That’s really what I was doing in law school?”

Think of all the seemingly insignificant things you do during the day and make you lose precious time, which, in turn, could be better spent on other activities. Aim to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time advocating. It may not seem much, but think of the sum of all minutes spent searching for customer information in the midst of so much paperwork in the office. Search paper files is only one example of a list of activities that could be made more efficiently through technology.

Tip 2 – Recognize inefficiency, even when the time wasted is not your

It is very common to allocate assistants (paralegals) to perform repetitive tasks on a day-to-day, how to find processes, go to the forum search for documents, among other duties. No matter, for the office, it does not seem to have a negative impact on both the client when the lawyer are affected: the customer will have to wait to get your information and the lawyer, in turn, lose the agility to the decision next step in the process. If the firm has a practical and proper management, the information is systemic and available quickly, which enables the aid to be allocated to activities aimed at the practice of law.

Tip 3 – Use technology for technology tasks, and to give people the personal touch

When we insist that it is necessary to use the technology wherever possible, we do not suggest that his office is free of personal touch that only professionals can. In fact, people allocate tasks relationship with the client (such as answering the phone, for example), you can meet the need to provide feedback on the process. However, the office possibilities when using a specialized management software in legal are many, among them: work where you are, via mobile devices; access all information related to a case in one place; integrate with other software programs (such as accounting, for example); among others.

Tip 4 – Save your details mind, let them because of the technology

The data storage is not a job for the brain, secretaries or even notebooks. memory lapses occur, employees may have unforeseen and coffee can stain a notepad when spilled. With a management software for the legal, the office not only saves the attention of your employees who can focus 100% for the year, as it keeps track of everything that happens on a day-to-day lawyer, from the smallest detail, creating a database that can be accessed at any time by a lawyer, either at a meeting or a trip out of the country.

Tip 5 – Keep track of every minute of your time, even if it is not billable

You will never really know how productive, until you are controlling faithfully as your time is spent on all day-to-day, even the fastest. This is the best way to eliminate inefficiencies in internal processes and generate data needed to design new processes and make the office more profit. Although there are many timesheet programs on the Internet, often, they do not integrate the management software, which longer demand to mark the information correctly – so always opt for a legal software that has the timesheet feature and eliminate concerns .

Tip 6 – Get at least considering the idea of a paperless office

We know that may sound a bit drastic and even scary, but when you consider that everything is done on paper can be managed much more efficiently on computers, this feeling passes. There are always those who disagree and claim that the computer can break, power falls or viruses invade the network, but believe me, simple features such as backup, redundancy, firewall and the like, outweigh these claims.

The lawyer of the day-to-day is not limited to defending pleadings or going to hearings. Inside the office, there is a routine management and customer contact, which also need some techniques to be efficient and productive.

Tips for the first hearing of a lawyer

If you are a student and never followed an audience, do it! The hearings are public and there is no harm in entering the room and watch, besides being a great way to get in touch with your prospective duties as a lawyer.

However, see the professionals working in audience is very different from acting. And it is common for the first hearing as lawyer (and not only intern or student) let unsafe.

Nervousness is common and even normal, but feel unsure can generate two potential problems:

First, you need to watch the entire audience to not miss anything that might be detrimental to his client;

Second, you need to spend tranquility to his client because he himself should already be nervous about the audience.

And of course you will not want to sit on the wrong side of the table out of sheer nervousness, let alone speak some silly or speak at the wrong time, then prepare for the hearing is extremely important!

First, focus on what area is your audience! Labour? Criminal? Civil? It is in the common law or the Courts? Remember that there are specific procedures for some materials. For example, the Labor Court is hearing the UNA, ie there is an attempt at conciliation, and having no success in an agreement, following the instruction hearing.

See what your audience and check the procedure. The order in which each act will happen. Not that you do not already know the procedure, but to a studied before the hearing will make it more secure and confident, and avoid any slip-ups.

Another tip: never tell the customer that is your first audience. Obviously you will not invent fanciful stories about the many audiences that you’ve done, or the many lawyers you humbled in past hearings. But you do not have to tell him it’s your first time. Especially if the client is not in a position of advantage in the process and are nervous about the audience. Just avoid it and then if you want to tell. After finishing the audience! Remember to take the reins and make your client trust you.

Write down the questions you want to witness or the other party (if applicable) on paper and let the visible and handy, easy to pick up. The judge will ask the questions before you, and depending on who you are representing, the lawyer of the other party as well. And only then you can ask your questions. Stay tuned to the audience and go streaking in your paper the questions that have been answered. Mount a strategy to prove what you want through these questions, not to look like you’re asking questions just to cause turmoil or just to meet table.

Another tip is to also make a small sketch of what happened in the process up to that point, with the questions you want to do. Write down what was alleged in exordial, what was said in defense that there were decisions until that moment, had recourse, etc. All this will facilitate your strategy at the time and thus will be more difficult than you forget something important or let pass something significant in the process.

Anyway, keep calm, keep the posture of a competent professional, try to calm your client and take control of the situation, and take a estudadinha before, to ensure that will not embananar with the procedures or the time of each act.

lawyer tips how to make a conciliation hearing

One of the issues we fear most when we started advocating is: how do audience? How to make a conciliation hearing? A hearing and trial? How to make? How to speak? How to behave? Perhaps this may be your situation, dear colleague.

CONCILIATION HEARING

It is the procedural act whose primary purpose put face to face parties to talking about any proposal and counterproposal agreement, can reach a common denominator and to end the conflict of interest.

The conciliation hearing in a special civil court is very quiet to be made. Look:

TRADING SESSIONS

“Trading” is the act by which the conciliator or someone designated by (or the Judge or Lay) calls on the parties to the hearing. Stay smart! Sit as close to the microphone where they are called the parties or even close to the room where there will be a hearing.

If by chance you (and your client) is not called to the hearing and this happens without you have been called, go immediately to the Clerk of the court where you are and ask them to make a “Cartor├íria Certificate”. Detail the time you arrived, where sat the time of the hearing, finally, even naming of possible witnesses.

ENTERING THE AUDIENCE

When entering the audience, always give preference to what other people feel. This is because, depending on the size of the audience room, not even enough chairs may have. It is a matter of education.

HEARING BEGINS …

When everyone was seated, the conciliator (or the judge or the Lay Judge) will ask if there is reconciliation. If you are the part D, probably the question is directed to you. Calmly say,

“Excellence, the Defendant has failed to pass any proposal” or “No proposal Excellence / Doctor (a).”

Or again: “Yes, sir, there is proposed in these terms: (speak the proposal that you have to offer).” After that, the conciliator will ask for the other party if it agrees or disagrees. Agreeing and set the terms, the conciliator will type everything in the Record of Hearing.

DELIVERING THE DEFENCE (A PLEA) IN AUDIENCE

If the answer negative, the conciliator will ask you, if the part D, if there are documents to be attached. If you are in a company, for example, you should have on hand: Social Contract, your attorney (or substitution, depending on the case) and the Charter of preposition.

As for the Challenge, it will depend on the Juvenile Court. There are some who say the quote and Subpoena Letter for you to bring the defense in the conciliation hearing. Others say nothing, that is, in this case, may occur: 1) after the conciliation hearing will be given a deadline for you to join the defense or 2) you will deliver the only challenge the audience and trial. Still others actually specify that the defense should only be delivered to the hearing and trial.

Tip What is the proper etiquette at a hearing of a lawyer

In the case of lawyers, clothing with very prominent necklines or short clothes are obviously out of the question. A grand entrance in the courtroom begins with the preparation and before you get there. So do not skip these steps!

Be punctual

It is important to arrive early to the Court where the hearing will take place, so that when the trading happens, you and the customer are prepared to enter the room. When you enter the room, each party sits in his place, accompanied by his legal representative. In a civil hearing conciliation or inquiry and trial, the plaintiff’s attorney sits on the right of the magistrate, the table, and the defendant’s lawyer sits on the left, each part with its representative. In labor hearings, however, that provision is reversed. If there is doubt about where to sit, do not show tension, simply letting the other lawyer take your seat first. Then just take the other end of the table.

If you are in doubt, try to inform a colleague with more experienced lawyer, who has been in these situations on the appropriate posture for the ritual of an audience. This way you can avoid any uncertainty on your part (fatal for the lawyer’s work), the time of the hearing.

And do not forget to advise your client to do the same, leading him to even avoid expressing too emotional or offensively. inappropriate behavior may result in penalties, either for you or for your client. After all, the court is a space whose formality should be promptly respected by all present.

Interestingly, always the day before or a few days before the hearing, you explain to your client what should be the correct behavior in court before the judge. Middle-how to the rituals he should follow, and explain to the client that the judge’s questions should be promptly answered bluntly, but only to the exact extent that is asked.

Each audience has a set of specific procedural acts, which will vary greatly according to each case – as conciliation, fixing controversial points, the evidentiary phase and final claims, for example. The most important thing is to be well prepared, both legally and with regard to knowledge of that particular case, in order to transmit great credibility when addressing the judge or the other party. This care will facilitate the favorable convicting magistrate, and, of course, go safely to your customer, which will surely be facing a difficult and defining moment of his life.
