Become a More Responsive Lawyer
It's pretty simple—when a client reaches out to you via contact form on your website, phone call, or email, they're expecting a prompt response. They're probably contacting a number of attorneys, trying to get a quote or more information about fees, the legal process, and the like. Responding to prospects within 24 hours seems like a no-brainer. Think about it: A hot lead wants to hire you, so why wouldn't you jump on it? But let's face it, your law firm gets busy. You become wrapped up in current cases, clients, and court. Maybe you've been out of the office or just overlooked the email or voicemail entirely.
