Technology is a wonderful thing! Consider Skype, a free, web-based videoteleconferencing service which allows two people to communicate face-to-face, even though they are sitting at different locations around the world. All you need to use the service is a computer with high-speed internet access, a web-cam, speakers, and a free Skype account.
I was recently introduced to Skype by my older brother, who is serving in the military and stationed overseas. The ease of use and clarity of image are quite remarkable.
I am so impressed with Skype, I have decided to incorporate it into my law practice. Starting today, I am offering clients the option of meeting with me via Skype when they call my office to set up an appointment. It will be very useful for the initial client meeting in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy cases.
It will be interesting to see how many clients take advantage of the opportunity to save the time of driving to my Massachusetts and Connecticut offices.
I welcome any thoughts you might have on using Skype in this manner.
