One of the most common grounds for a malpractice lawsuit against an attorney is in regard to negligence. Negligence can commonly be grouped into two categories: The attorney ignores the client and his or her case for extended periods of time or a case is dismissed because the attorney failed to meet crucial deadlines.
The bottom line is that your client expects you to approach the case with due diligence. This means that you must work promptly and diligently on a case until it reaches completion. Failure to do so violates your duty to the client and opens you and your firm up to a malpractice case.
Understanding the status of all your matters is crucial. At best, a lost matter leads to an unhappy customer. At worst, a malpractice claim.Richard Marvel, CEO of FirmTRAK
We realize that attorneys are tasked with an ever-growing list of things to keep track of. Some firms rely upon spreadsheets and paper tracking to make sure that cases are being recorded properly. Others rely upon the old fashioned system of appointment logs. Let’s just be honest that the paper system can be useful when you are in that office at that time and when you are sure that the person tracking it is entering all changes to a case in sync with the work others are doing.
It’s incredibly complex to keep this in line, but it doesn’t have to be.
FirmTRAK was designed to solve these problems (and many more).
