Very few lawyers, especially solo practitioners and those at smaller firms, spend their entire workday in their office, tethered to their desktop computer. You probably have multiple out-of-office appointments, court appearances and other activities each day that keep you on the move. That’s not such a bad thing unless your “perpetual motion” makes it difficult for prospective clients to find and contact you when they’re ready and motivated to hire a lawyer. If you don’t answer their call or email promptly, there’s plenty of other lawyers in town they can contact.
We are excited to announce the launch of a new mobile app for the iPhone®, LexisNexis® Lead Alert, that is designed to solve this problem.
LexisNexis® Lead Alert is an application that instantly delivers phone and email lead information to Apple® mobile devices* allowing attorneys to receive and respond to prospective client inquiries – sourced from the lawyer’s profile on Lawyers.comSM, martindale.com®, or from their LexisNexis-hosted website – quickly, even while they are on the go. The application is the latest in a series of recently released mobile applications developed by LexisNexis to help lawyers manage and grow their practice wherever and whenever convenient — improving productivity and ultimately work/life balance.
LexisNexis Lead Alert provides key features including:
- Real-Time Lead Notification: Receive notification of phone and email leads as soon as they are captured.
- Streamlined Response Options: Respond to potential clients or forward a lead with just a few touches of the screen.
- Easy-to-Use Templates: Save time with templated responses or create original responses for each prospective client. Note that customers retain sole responsibility for compliance with applicable rules of professional responsibility and ethical obligations in responding to potential clients.
Lead Alert allows you to maximize your existing marketing investments in Lawyers.com, martindale.com and your LexisNexis-hosted website by enabling you to connect with prospective clients right away—before another lawyer does.
With four out of five lawyers using mobile devices for work-related tasks when out of the office†, our goal is to deliver “go-anywhere” technology tools lawyers can use to promote greater efficiency, greater freedom, and better outcomes for their practice and their clients.
