Communication is Key

communication with lawyer

As with any other professional service, communication is vital when it comes to interacting with your lawyer.  Not only your connection to the lawyer but the lawyer’s connection with you.  Lack of communication can be the downfall of any accident or injury claim.  There is too much at risk to not be in constant touch with your lawyer and vice versa.  The Miley Legal Group takes communication with lawyers for clients seriously.

We understand that communication is key at The Miley Legal Group. We have established several methods to ensure both lawyers and staff keep in constant discussions with our clients throughout their claims.  

Technology Improve Communication with Lawyer

With the new technology in case management software, it is effortless to stay in touch with clients consistently. If you are consulting with another law firm, it might be a good idea to find out how they intend to keep in touch with you, how often, and with what available tools they will use.  

Here at our firm, we use several methods besides phone calls, including texting, emails, and direct mail pieces. We understand that you are busy and may not have time to take a call regardless of how quick it may be.

However, keep in mind that there are a number of periods during a case that contact can slow down, for example, while a person is still treating or when we are waiting for an offer from an insurance company. 

Constant Communication is Key

Still, for the most part, the other steps within the injury claim process require constant communication between client and firm. From the beginning, our clients know that we will be in constant contact, whether it be to copy our clients on any letter we send on their behalf or through staff follow-ups every 30 days. There should never be a time when a client has no idea what is transpiring with their case.

One of the first communications you can expect from our office is after you reach out to us for the first time.  Whether you do so by phone or online, our firm will respond to you immediately with more information. If you are not available when we reach back out, we will continue to make every attempt to get in touch with you to make sure you have all the answers you need to your questions.  

How to Communicate with The Miley Legal Group

After the initial consultation in person, over a video conference, and even entirely over the phone. We can forward any document to sign electronically and even walk you through our entire intake process over the phone. If need be, we can also come to your location to assist you. It gets even better after you sign a contract with our office.

Once you are a client with our firm, we make sure you are up to date as often as possible.  Either through direct contact with your lawyer or your assigned legal assistant, you should receive copies of all letters drafted on your behalf in addition to phone calls, texts, or emails (your choice).  

Our firm also wants to make sure that you are satisfied with our services, that is why we send periodic surveys for you to fill out to tell Tim how the staff is doing on your case.  If at any time you have a question, client, or not, we encourage you to reach out and get in touch with one of our friendly staff members who make it a priority to assist everyone that calls our office.
