If your Law Firms web site is hosted by LexisNexis/Martindale Hubbell you already have this product and you might not even know it.
Why would I want to use the Client Center feature?
There are several benefits to using Client Center. First, it is a secure way to share information with your clients online, protecting the attorney/client privilege. E-mail can be hacked or sent to the wrong recipient. You don’t have to worry about that with Client Center, as it was built specifically for the legal profession.
Second, you can use Client Center as a competitive advantage for your firm. You can provide your clients with online, realtime insight as to what is happening in their case, even when they can’t reach you.
Many consumers today are coming to expect online service – such as online banking. However, not all law firms offer this type of service. This can be a key differentiator as to why someone may choose your firm over others to represent them.
