Using Technology in a Law Firm Can Be Awarding

One of the more interesting components of a virtual law firm model is the continued exploration of enhancing client service through existing and new technological platforms. That is why we are very excited that Burton Law is receiving the Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Small Law Firm Award from ALM’s Law Technology News. We are honored to be recognized in this fashion and to be in the company of the other award recipients. Thank you to Law Technology News.

Our team made this happen. It is one thing to choose a technology platform for a business. It is another on how the collective executes on the use of that technology. In our case, each of our platforms are chosen to better serve our clients. The lawyers in the firm have embraced the platforms to collaborate on projects internally, as well as with clients, co-counsel and opposing counsel. Our virtual assistants, Interactive Assistants, has been critical to such execution, and our marketing firm, The Ohlmann Group, helps us share what we do.

A big thanks also is owed to Clio (Themis Solutions) for nominating the firm for this award. Clio is more than a tech vendor to us, more than a legal practice management solution. Their team has been an important partner in developing out the model and helping us push the use of other complementary platforms, including Box and Google Apps for Business.

We are not finished moving forward. The finishing touches are being place on integrating DirectLaw into our arsenal. Through this platform, we will provide the online delivery of legal services to clients. This will be in addition to the full-service representation of our business, litigation, estate planning and intellectual property clients.

Thank you again to LTN for this recognition. We are very grateful.
