New legal services meant to adapt to changing times
MONCTON, N.B. — The law practice of Michel DesNeiges has made additional changes to its functioning in order to better accommodate clients in this time of social distancing. Included in the new structure is the possibility of secure video conferencing and notarising and preparing e-documents for filing with courts.
“Our mindset has always been to stay on top of cutting edge changes in the law and in the way services are offered to clients”, says Michel DesNeiges, a senior defence lawyer who manages his own virtual law office based out of Moncton, N.B. “Our web site, Progressivelaw.ca, is adapted for quick responses to our current clients and prospective clients. We were also one of the first Maritime law offices to have gone paperless. It is a new age that is dawning. The recent COVID-19 crisis has precipitated these changes for the courts, but we knew the changes were coming regardless.”
Michel DesNeiges’ clients get direct and virtual contact with him through various media and communication devices that operate from his website. “Email, phone and text messages have long been around, but we’ve added chat options through the web site and, with physical distancing having become a recent necessity, we are able to engage with our clients by video conferencing such as Zoom, Skype and other tools.”
“Going paperless was a painful transition for those law firms and lawyers who took the plunge several years ago, but the payoff has arrived because we are now set up to receive disclosure from other parties almost immediately and we can provide our clients with all sorts of information without incurring ridiculous photocopying and mailing costs. And, for our clients who want it, it allows for more direct feedback and participation in their case.”
Michel DesNeiges invites any prospective clients to contact him today to learn more about the benefits of working with him. It all starts by visiting www.progressivelaw.ca or calling 506-389-8999.
