IOWA TELELAW LEGAL SERVICES
Are you in need of legal services but lack the time or resources to travel to an attorney? The Law Group of Iowa is pleased to announce that we may have the ideal solution for you in the way of TELELAW.
WHAT IS TELELAW?
Telelaw is the use of telecommunication devices such as phones and computers and electronic information to provide and receive remote legal services when you and an attorney are not in the same place at the same time.
If you have internet access, you likely already have everything you need to get many legal services via telelaw.
Although there may be some things that require an in-person meeting, with telelaw you are able to:
· Talk to your attorney live over the phone or via video chat.
· Send and receive communications from your attorney through chat messaging, emails, secure messaging, and secure file exchange.
· Complete and sign many types of legal documents.
WHAT TYPES OF SERVICES CAN I RECEIVE THROUGH TELELAW?
By effectively using technology, our attorneys are able to provide many different types of legal services including, but not limited to:
· Estate Planning
· Elder Law
· Medicare & Medicaid Issues
· Agricultural / Farm Planning
· Tax Issues
· Personal Injury
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN’T BE DONE THROUGH TELELAW?
The short answer is – yes. Some matters require an in-person meeting, particularly if court appearances are required. However, even in these situations, much of the upfront work can be done remotely, saving you time and frustration.
Although telelaw is currently not as common as in person appointments, remote legal services offer many benefits such as:
· Saving you time as you don’t have to travel to and from your attorney’s office.
· Saving money in the way of gas, child care, time off from work, and even wear and tear on your vehicle.
· Flexibility in that the attorneys at Law Group o Iowa will work with your schedule and offer telelaw appointments outside of traditional office hours, including evenings and weekends. This increased flexibility can also cut down on the time it takes to get in to see an attorney in person.
Telelaw is not for everyone nor is it ideal for every type of case. In these situations, our attorneys are more than happy to come to you – statewide – as we are the Law Group of IOWA!
