LACBA "Lawyers should be breaking down your website to use it."

Did you know? . . . that LACBA has some fresh ideas for its member attorneys.

Did you know that you're about to try one of them? Why is LACBA making it available to you at a discount? Because it's likely good for your firm. Why is that? Because state laws on sending and storing client information are changing. Because you can't just toss personal information in an email any more. Why? Because that stuff leaks out. It happens all the time. Why go there? Your compliance officer will pass around the memo.

"This is a real solution. You've kept it simple."

How do you build real trust over the internet? Sounds silly really. But if it's not possible, where does that leave you now?

What's the positive vision for your firm on the web? Does it include online collaborative work spaces? Locking down your overseas communications? Giving your clients the knowledge that you're securing their IP? How do you build trust over the net? What's your positive vision for working well?

"These other firms aren't going to stay in business pressing the print button"

More secure than email, the Lawdex Secure Document Exchange (SDX) allows law firms to send and track all of their correspondence over the web including filings into the court, personal service, copy to opposing counsel, records requests, photos, exhibits, medical and financial data.

Lawdex SDX allows your firm to issue nearly all of its legal correspondence securely online. From the Lawdex site your practice can:
  • Correspond electronically with all parties involved in a case, documenting when they received and opened their correspondence
  • File with any state or municipal court in California
  • Retrieve court records from any non-federal court in the US
  • Serve papers on any corporation or individual in the US
  • Know who saw what when
Maintain attorney privilege while corresponding over the internet. Correspond through SDX with opposing counsel and all parties and non-parties to a case. Documents never move over email. Instead, email notices bring recipients to view documents securely inside an SDX lockbox. The system captures the ID of recipients, plus the time and date documents are opened. Hundreds of parties can be notified at one time. All correspondence can be rapidly opened, searched, tracked, archived, or associated by case or reference number.
