Introducing a New Service for Family Law Clients
December 18, 2020 – London/Toronto – Lerners LLP is pleased to partner with Settify, an Australia-based legal technology provider, in the launch of a new service for the firm’s family law clients. Using Artificial Intelligence to interact with first-time clients, the on-boarding platform offers a curated, convenient intake process, saving potential clients valuable time and allowing them to complete the questionnaire process in their own time from anywhere.
Settify guides users through various scenarios and questions, and generates a full brief for the lawyer to review prior to meeting with the potential client in person, ensuring the initial consultation is more productive. With the lawyer having reviewed the client information package prior to the first consultation, they will have a familiarity with the parties, the challenges and the goals of the potential client at the outset. In order to take advantage of this new offering, those seeking counsel for family law matters need only visit the firm’s family law webpage via computer, tablet or smart phone, and click on the button to get started.
“We are really pleased to be able to offer this platform to potential clients,” say Ryan McNeil and Michelle Raithby, partners in the firm’s Family Law Group. “Settify is easy to use and allows clients to go at their own pace on their own time in advance of the initial consultation. They can do so in the evenings or weekends, when the kids are asleep, or when their schedule allows. Of course, potential clients can still contact us through traditional means like telephone, email or the website, but we are pleased to offer a convenient new solution to those in need of family law services who are navigating a particularly stressful time in their lives.”
Settify is a user-friendly platform that uses Artificial Intelligence to interact with family law clients in real time to deliver bespoke guidance on pertinent legal issues and synthesizes the clients’ background information which will be provided to their lawyer. Initially developed in Australia, Settify is used by legal providers in Australia and the UK to provide on-boarding for family law and estates clients, and has now been adapted for use in Ontario for family law practices.
