Published On : January 31, 2022




As a person who is curious about an industry and what’s going inside the system, I used to listen the glorifying stories of this profession from a very long time. What unnoticed is the credibility of this profession as a remarkable ingredient of period irrespective of place and people with an impeccable status. In all those interesting tales about legal technology, that one thing which I have always noticed is the visibility of this profession. In all these years, the lawyers have come a long way with the industry in order to achieve the incomplete goals of the past generations and what constant is the effort to resolve the mistakes, which improvise the work model into its best form. Let’s do the same job then, have a look to those common mistakes made by our lawyers.

1) A Miscommunicating office

It’s already clear that the formula of a successful legal venture is the balanced, proper connection between the two sides of this coin, the ideal communication between customers and lawyers. From the decision of choosing the legal assistance, to the successful establishment of the firm, the future of a legal firm is always depends upon the mutual connection of these two fronts. Sometimes, hectic schedules of a law firm may cause for a communication gap between your clients shows the absence of technical system that maintains this connection. The current legal techies are already had multiple solutions to this single problem, which shows how dangerous it could be to the business of a law firm.

2) Failed attempts to intake

For a customer who is in need of a law firm has endless number of options to approach and what makes an ordinary law firm the first choice of this customer is an effective intake process. The traditional legal space has not only limited the future possibilities of a group of lawyers, but also complicated the regular procedures of intake with the customers. The delayed intake setup of an average legal setup keep the potential candidates away from its business, which is another red flag in the business. A streamlined system capable of timely interventions and quick decisions has already settled down the situation through the storage of the initial data in regular intervals. In a data dealing with the faults of lawyer’s, we can’t miss the incident of a failed intake system.

3) The worst customer service ever

There have been multiple stories revolving around legal firms about inefficient customer service that caused the anti-climax for many. From a very long period, we are stating the same point for the nth time that customer is your king but aspiring business minds always fail to deliver necessary, which is simply pathetic. The extra addition of technology has brought equal number of modifications in customer management along with the operation wing. I found it’s boring to repeat the magical customer theory in business it will be disastrous if you still couldn’t notice the drawbacks with your customer management system.

4) Avoiding technology

I still feel sorry for the people who are reluctant of choosing technology in the maintenance of the old school style of working. With a silly ‘No’ , what they are missing is the best working platform that a lawyer can ever dream of with the finest market model of legal industry ever found. The technology has this special blessing to replace something collapsed with better results for sure. But what if someone tried to replace this same technology with some old practises and an out-dated system, the result will be unfortunate to watch to any lawyer in this industry. So, it’s humane to make mistakes in your work routine even though it has repercussions, but don’t ever mess with technology and try to cancel it.
