Client Communication and Education – The Importance of Technology

Hunt at night

My son Jordan and I recently took a small trip to Campbell Law School in Raleigh, North Carolina and North Carolina State University. While there, we visited the Hunt Library on NC State’s Campus, which is an absolutely amazing facility that really shows the benefit of being at the forefront of technology. This library had what’s known as a book robot – this is a small robot that has you plug in the book you want and will then go and get it in the warehouse to bring it to you. Wow! We were also in a group room that had whiteboards for walls, and my son was fortunately able to do some of his Calculus on them.

Being in that library inspired me to touch on a subject that some people tend to shy away from. I want to talk about the place of technology in Elder Law. I know there are some individuals and companies who would be hesitant in bringing technology into that field. It scares people, I know that. But in my experience, the seniors I count as my clients are extremely up on technology: they’re on Facebook, they navigate email, they do it all. You’ve heard me talk about our eDocs Access Program, which we’re very proud of. This system allows any of our clients to have access to their important healthcare documents 24 hours a day. Stored on the eDocs system are exact copies of the documents, and clients enjoy bank-level security through the system. When they log in, they have a wallet card which lists their login information. They can also access the program from a mobile device, tablet, or other computer to get to all the documents that they need. Now, this comes in handy if you are going on vacation or have a healthcare incident while away from home, heaven forbid. 

Transmission of information is also key for keeping the lines of communication open with the seniors and other clients that I welcome to my office. As you browse the website, you’ll notice that there are a plethora of different options that you can peruse in addition to the blog posts. These include videos and interviews, different social media links, and other forms of relevant content. To ensure that communication is consistent, I have even established a newsletter sign-up right on the front page of the site. Clients and non-clients alike can enter their information and receive the latest news and information that my company generates about Elder Law and the advances that are being made in that field.

Communication and technology are thus key when it comes to Elder Law in keeping the seniors and other clients involved. My goal in this process is not just to be your attorney that drafts wills and powers of attorney; my goal is to be an attorney who develops a culture which sparks excitement, interest, and facilitates communication. 

These are some of the many ways that incorporation of technology can help seniors protect their hard-earned assets and legacies. Constant involvement and distribution of information is therefore essential to this process.
