Law firms face problems every single day and most encounter the same ones. Here’s a quick list of things that owners, attorneys, paralegals and support staff suffer from, along with solutions made by LawAlign, our comprehensive personal injury case management system.
Problem: I don’t know if there is a conflict with a potential client?
Solution: Search for the contact’s name within seconds to determine whether or not you have had any affiliation with the potential client in the past.
Problem: I’m concerned we are going to miss statutes or critical dates?
Solution: There are numerous screens and search options to see your statutes and critical dates. Additionally, LawAlign has reminder pop-up features, auto-dating calendared events, and so much more. Filter files by status to see what’s upcoming. Filter tasks by critical dates to view what has and has not been completed. Immediately see what files need to be high priority and assign as necessary. It’s nearly impossible to miss one with this system.
Problem: I’m concerned that a staff member may mistakenly erase data.
Solution: With our case management software, only certain administrative users are allowed to delete data and in the event that happens, your prior safeguards, such as backups, are still firmly in place. Our log reveals to you exactly who, what, when, and where anything has been changed.
Problem: I can’t find a name, telephone number or document associated with a file.
Solution: Our software is created so that all case and contact information is saved within the system and it takes seconds to find, if not quicker. Your client data, all case contacts, and documents, are conveniently stored at your fingertips.
Problem: I need to settle a case and I don’t have enough information to make a proper demand.
Solution: You can search the adjuster and find his or her history of settlements with your firm. You can search other cases which settled for a specific amount and compare injuries, demands, offers and negotiation notes. You can instantaneously view injuries, special damages and medical information, along with any prior negotiation and medical records within the case. Making an appropriate demand takes minutes.
Problem: I’m in court and I forgot the hard file. I don’t have the Motion papers I have to argue.
Solution: Grab your iPad or iPhone and access the system to view the entire case. Better yet, don’t bother bringing the file and use your iPad anyway.
Problem: I have no idea if my employees are actually producing work.
Solution: LawAlign’s case management system allows you many ways to answer that question. Simply filter documents and completed tasks by user and immediately see what he or she has been up to over the past day, week, month or year. Take a look at a user’s dashboard, or take a look at your administrative log. Know who to keep on payroll and who not to.
Problem: I have no idea what’s been going on with a particular case and I have the client on the phone looking for a status.
Solution: Open the file through our comprehensive case management system and review anything you wish, within a minute or so. Check your checklists, or the status, documents, notes, and tasks quickly and easily. Find anything immediately.
Problem: I have a new employee I like, but isn’t exactly an expert when it comes to spelling and grammar.
Solution: Allow LawAlign to generate all the letters, pleadings and forms you use. Even a novice can produce perfect documents in seconds. Make sure all of your documents exiting your law office are correct, using our document generation feature.
Problem: I just remembered we were waiting for a settlement check to come in. I wonder if it did.
Solution: Bring up the case and immediately see if the firm was paid in our self-calculating disbursements tab. Furthermore, you may check the task to see if it was completed instead. Alternatively, check the case documents for a copy of the check (if you are scanning in documents). If your settlement check wasn’t received, task an employee to follow up immediately for payment and maybe enter a reminder for yourself too.
Problem: My calendar clerk is on maternity leave.
Solution: LawAlign’s calendar is an office-wide system. Assign another employee to handle the calendar and his or her manager to monitor it. The software’s simplicity allows for anyone to handle your new calendar system.
