23 Aug What Does It Mean to Be a 24/7 Attorney? – EP 25 – The Entrepreneurial Lawyer
Podcast hosts Dan Cuneo and Sarah Ruttan Bates discuss what exactly it means when lawyers claim to be available 24/7. Many law firms market their attorneys as being available to clients 24/7 but narrowing down what that specifically means is a little tricky.
The hosts discuss whether “24/7” is misleading; how chat, text, and email can be utilized to help attorneys answer client questions at all hours; the complications that can arise regarding the establishment of attorney-client relationships when answering questions from potential clients; how attorneys can strike a balance between practicing law and promptly answering client questions; and more.
