Communication with your Child Custody Lawyer at Foxtrot Family Law...

Updated: Oct 7


All lawyer jokes aside, the number one legitimate complaint folks have about their lawyers is communication. At Foxtrot, we utilize our amazing team, the latest technology and some simple calendaring techniques and rituals to make sure our clients have the information they need to be effective on a day-to-day basis and that our legal team has the information we need to be well prepared to present our client’s case in Court.

Team - Prompt communication and responsiveness takes a team effort. Our legal staff of legal assistants and paralegals are on the front lines to let our clients know that they’ve been heard and their correspondence or question has been received. Our staff is trained to be able to respond to most inquiries and log necessary information in your file, but if one of our Child Custody lawyers needs to get involved, our staff will alert them to review the client’s file and correspondence at their earliest opportunity.

Technology - Our clients live in a world where traditional telephone communication is inefficient, often ineffective and, in this business, unnecessarily expensive. Each of our clients has access to a confidential Google Chat Space to access every member of our team directly and discreetly. The Chat is open 24-7 and, even though we can’t always respond until business hours, it’s an easy way to make sure our clients’ issues or questions are on our radar first thing in the morning.

Techniques for Calendaring - Author and business coach, Kevin Kruse, teaches that transferring a to-do list to a calendar is the way to be truly effective. We live by our calendars here at Foxtrot so we make sure to calendar short reminders follow-ups with our client after each interaction. We even have different terminology for what kind of follow-up will be needed based on our client’s unique circumstances and the status of their case. This keeps our “to-do list” right in front of us all day, every day, right there on our calendar.

Foxtrot’s team, our technology and our techniques for calendaring are just a few of the ways we keep you and our team at Foxtrot informed, involved and invested in your Child Custody, Divorce, DHR or Adoption case each step of the way.
