From tracking due dates to requesting medical records and filing/serving documents, the list of attorney responsibilities during the discovery process could probably fill an entire encyclopedia.
Thankfully, for each to-do there’s now technology that supports litigation efficiencies. That topic was the aim of Smokeball’s most recent webinar, “Build Better Litigation Efficiencies: Helpful Tips for Your Small Firm,” featuring Smokeball Senior Trainer Sara Sultan, and two members of partner company InfoTrack, Product Marketing Manager Alex Braun and Sales Manager Karolina Sikorska.
The three explored a wide range of topics related to discovery and litigation efficiencies, which you can learn about in-depth in the on-demand webinar recording.
As a sneak peek, here are details on three of our favorites:
Tracking due dates: The same Smokeball Workflows that keep small law firms organized in their day-to-day tasks also improve your litigation efficiencies. Schedule your automated warnings well in advance to schedule check-ins with your clients, follow up on subpoenas and ensure readiness for your trial.
Requesting medical records: Last year, Smokeball partnered with retrieval company YoCierge to automate your requests. YoCierge pulls in matter and client details to populate your order. Not only is the file automatically imported to the Smokeball matter list upon retrieval, the system also creates a nonbillable expense for the client.
Filing/serving documents: Smokeball’s InfoTrack integration makes it easy to select documents for e-filing and service them directly from the related Smokeball matter. And document automation tools mean your saved matter details pre-fill in your Filing and Serving workflow, avoiding costly and embarrassing errors.
