It varies greatly from one day to the other but certainly remains hectic. I would be in court all day or half the day and then would have to rush to the scheduled appointments with clients and prospective clients. At times, I would have a deposition and would have to travel to courts throughout the state.
The fact that I get the opportunity to help people in some of their worst times.
I have a lot of letters, pleadings, discovery requests and answers that my paralegal sends me on a daily basis. Owing to the high volume of such documents, there is a never ending need for me to get things signed and out of the office before they pile up.
I was going on a vacation and being a sole practitioner, I was hoping to find an app that would let me keep up with the workflow by helping me review and sign document while I am away from office. I found several apps to do this but none seemed as easy to use and learn as SignEasy. I started using SignEasy and immediately moved to one of the paid plans once the free trial was over.
I can sign the documents (I always use the color blue for signature and it lets me do that) as soon as my paralegal sends them to me. As a standard practice, we scan everything to PDF and keep them in a case management system. With SignEasy, I can read the documents, sign them easily and email them back in PDF format.
I use SignEasy when I am at the courthouse, home for lunch and whenever my paralegal needs something signed. In fact, my paralegal uses it even when I am in the office as he says I send back the documents to him faster when I use SignEasy! In short, I use SignEasy all the time, whether I am in or away from office. Also, the fact that SignEasy sends me as well as my paralegal, a copy of each document after signing, is a feature I find of great use.
There is no doubt that SignEasy makes you more efficient and more responsive to the workflow the staff is trying to keep up with. Honestly for me, it’s hard to take time off. But now I know that whether I am in office or on a vacation, I will be able to keep the documents moving through my office instead of piling them up and be at ease.
