ADVICE & BLOGROLL
In North Carolina, if you’re absolutely hammered, try and find a Segway instead of an electric scooter; it might just save you a DWI charge!
As always, we begin our analysis by reviewing the relevant law, N.C.G.S. 20-138.1: “A person commits the offense of Impaired Driving if he drives any vehicle upon any highway, any street, or any public vehicular area within this state: While under
Drugged Driving – or Drug DWI – is a form of “Impaired Driving,” under N.C.G.S. 20-138.1. This is the same law that the State uses to convict drunk drivers. In other words, the same law governs drunk driving and drugged driving. But, operating under the influence of drugs, and operating under the influence of alcohol, are two very different things.
DESIGN & BRANDING
FLETCHER LEGAL ASSISTS SOLO ATTORNEYS AND SMALL LAW FIRMS BY AUTOMATING ROUTINE TASKS, MANAGING DATA, AND DESIGNING BEAUTIFUL WEBSITES THEY’RE PROUD TO SHOW THE WORLD. Your website says a lot about you: it’s the face that choose to present to the world. Prospective clients increasingly search for counsel online, and make decisions whether to retain your services sometimes based on the appearance of your homepage alone. Obviously, small law firms lack the resources of BigLaw; all too often, their single largest marketing resource – their website – looks sad, dilapidated, and outdated.
WHAT DOES YOUR WEBSITE SAY ABOUT YOU? During the first decade of managing my solo practice, I chose not to have a website rather than having one that looked cheap and thrown together. When I did finally choose to incorporate a website into my practice, I spent a year teaching myself how to design, brand, build, and integrate cutting edge tools in to my site, rather than outsourcing the job. I invested a year of my life into learning this skill because I knew I couldn’t afford to hire a professional designer to build the website I knew my practice deserved. And I refused to settle for a website that looked sloppy, unprofessional, and amateur.
THE SKILLS I HAVE LEARNED WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE WAY I PRACTICE LAW. Things will never be the same again: aside from moving to an entirely paperless law practice, I learned how to harness the power of web forms and dynamic PDF generation. These are crucial, cutting edge technologies that automatically avail my Firm as advantage that places me on level footing with BigLaw. My time has been freed-up to focus on what I want to do with my Firm. I’m no longer bound to the monotonous, routine tasks that consumed so much of my valuable time, and I am here to share those skills with you.
WE ACCEPT CLIENTS, NOT CASES, AND WE GO WHERE WE ARE NEEDED, ACROSS ALL 100 NORTH CAROLINA COUNTIES. We stick to what we’re good at, continually pushing the envelope and streamlining process steps. We always set our clients up for the best possible outcome.
DESIGN & BRANDING
FLETCHER LEGAL IS MORE THAN JUST A LAW FIRM. Fletcher Legal doesn’t just help clients with Drunk Driving charges and Insurance Claims – we help Solo Attorneys and Small Law Firms up their game. Your website is what you choose to show the world; it’s the first, and sometimes only impression prospective clients have of you. Our team of professionals is able to assist your Firm with:
- Branding & Marketing
- Custom Website Design
- Custom Form Design
- Workflow & Automation
- Fillable PDF Documents
- Electronic Signatures
- Paperless Law Offices
- Online Client Registration
- Data Management
- Blog Posts, Custom Post Types, and Advanced Custom Fields
THE FIRST STEP IS AN ASSESSMENT OF YOUR CURRENT CAPABILITIES AND NEEDS. The first step with any new Firm we assist is analyzing their current online presence, and determining where our client wants to go. We do much more listening than talking. We seek to build a relationship built on mutual trust where we can help clients accomplish their online goals, one step at a time. After we’ve assessed their current online presence, we discuss whether a complete rebranding is necessary, or whether we can build on an underlying structure that already exists.
WE PROVIDE A ROADMAP TO ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DESIGN GOALS. After we’ve analyzed the current status of our client’s online presence, we typically begin with color schemes and logo design. We work with clients to accomplish a branding scheme that conveys the message our clients seek to convey, without using words. Clients are then able to integrate their custom logos into everything from their website headers, to email signatures and stationary. After we’ve effectively created a color scheme and logo that our clients love, we determine they type of website they require, and put forward a plan to accomplishing their goals.
PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS INCREASINGLY USE THE INTERNET TO FIND AN ATTORNEY. And, like it or not, a prospective client’s first impression of you and your practice is determined by your website’s homepage. Are you satisfied with your current website? I’m guessing that you’re not, or you wouldn’t be reading this. Our consulting services focus on designing beautiful, client-focused, easy to use websites targeted for higher search engine results. By studying and implementing the correct keywords for your specific practice, then implementing those keywords in the proper manner into your website, we are able to assist with raising your online presence onto the first page of internet search engine results. In addition to Search Engine Optimization services (SEO), Fletcher Legal can also assist you with:
- Creating a virtual lobby where attorneys can conduct video calls with clients and prospective clients without either party having to download software, or even create user accounts. The video call platforms we implement are HIPPA compliant, for military grade encryption.
- Creating custom online payment portals, allowing clients to pay their attorney’s fees online with credit cards. No more having to chase down clients when their bills become due.
- Creating an online calendaring and appointment scheduling system that blocks off days and times as you’d like. When a client books an online appointment, that time is now blocked off to prevent another client from booking an appointment at the same time. You can also choose to collect appointment fees by requiring users to input a credit card before they are able to schedule an online appointment to speak with an attorney.
- Creating custom forms and PDF Generators for clients to fill out contracts & agreements, intake questionnaires, medical record releases, and any other document your practice may require. Coupled with the ability to accept electronic signatures, the possibilities are endless.
- Designing custom logos, branding, and color schemes for your law practice, including Calls to Action and Landing Pages.
- Writing Copy for your firm’s specific practice areas.
- Uploading PDF forms and handouts for clients to download and review, including e-books.
- Building a gorgeous website from the ground up that you’ll be proud to show off to your clients, your colleagues, and the entire world.
