“Texting is here, we might as well use it.” – Jim Calloway



    • Text messaging is an important technology tool for lawyers but is not widely embraced due to concerns about privacy.

    • Practice management software solutions are now adding text messaging, so it can be filed in the proper client digital file.

    • Text messaging is important for lawyers in terms of practice management, efficiency, and notifications to clients.

    • Text message reminders can be useful for clients unfamiliar with the legal process, such as for initial consultations or court appearances.

    • Text messages can be used to increase response rates from prospective and existing clients.
