As we all have been told so often, we are living in unprecedented times. Whilst we in WA have been sheltered from the worst of the Covid issues that have beset other states, we  need to exercise great vigilance to ensure we and our families stay safe.

We have been disrupted from our usual routines and most of us, if not all of us, have had to make some big sacrifices and put in a big effort to keep us all safe and moving forward.

The way the world does business has changed dramatically and there has been a very powerful move to using technology.

The legal profession is usually a bit slow to adopt new technology and we believe this has not favoured their clients. The old ways are no longer the best ways.

We have a new way of connecting with our clients and we think this will very soon become the standard across the board. We are leaders in this movement in Western Australia.

The new world has accepted the electronic way of communicating with open arms and it is most unlikely that we will go back entirely to the “old ways”. It is the international experience that those who are exposed to the new ways adopt them and love them.

Getting clients into our offices and meeting with them is a huge inconvenience for them for a range of reasons.

Just think about this if you go to see your lawyer.

  • You need to get appropriately dressed,
  • Lock up and leave your pet alone
  • make your way by car, bus or train or get a lift
  • to your solicitor’s office,
  • find parking (which is always a problem)
  • pay for the cost of transportation, whichever type you use, from home and back again and the parking cost if you use your car,
  • be at risk of an accident on your way to the meeting
  • wait for transport or in a waiting room
  • all of this exposed to contact with other people who may not only pose a risk for something as serious as Covid
  • and the discomfort if it is hot, windy, cold.

 

Would you not prefer to simply consult with your lawyer from the comfort of your home – or even from your workplace during your lunchbreak?

Today, a large number of services are provided electronically, often by Zoom, but there are other ways. You may have heard of Teledoc and suchlike in terms of which even medical consultations are now being held by telephone or audio-visual, obviating the need of patients to attend on their doctor in person unless, of course, determination is made during the discussion that there is a need for this.

We do not enjoy the disruption to their lives when attending professional  appointments and that includes solicitors. It’s an unwelcome and unnecessary  inconvenience.

At Friedman Lurie Singh & D’Angelo we are keen to provide a community sensitive service to our clients.

An audiovisual communication is far superior than just an audio ( telephone) consultation.

In addition to Zoom there are a number of other methods of having an audiovisual meeting with our clients. Most of us will be aware of WhatsApp.

There is also Facetime,Skype,Messenger and Signal. For those who do not have any of these set up we can easily help you to do so.

Nobody would disagree that having a face-to-face discussion is better than simply having a telephone discussion. We love the idea and believe this will be in our clients’ interest for obvious reasons, not the least is that it will help keep us all safe from the Covid issues that are likely to be a problem for some time to come.

We have developed procedures to enable us to provide to you, our clients, our usual, high quality legal services in a way most advantageous to you and in the most socially sensitive and effective way.

All you need to do is give Friedman Lurie Singh & D’Angelo a call on 9254 0000 and we will arrange it so that we can provide you with the legal services you need.

We wish you and all the people of Western Australia a safe and prosperous year.
