In the “recent old days” people had a flip phone and a good computer, which meant that they used email, they could read documents easily, and they could write complete rough drafts and fill out family law forms in rough draft to be edited by attorneys. They saved their lawyers’ time, which saved the clients’ money. Punctuation was more common; capitalization was used, and thoughts were more complete, even in the rough drafts.
Gradually phones became ever more powerful and expensive, and people quit buying personal computers, using their phones as their only computers. Now, they might have trouble reading documents, and instead of a complete rough draft in response to the other side’s documents, numerous texts might be sent, without capitalization or punctuation as an“email” from their phones. This ends up costing the clients money, as their lawyers need more time to put together, and make presentable for the courts, what is sent.
Here is my advice: While we at Mason Law are happy to piece together your statements, and do it all the time, we want your legal bill to be as low as possible, and time is our inventory. Time is money. You will be money ahead in your divorce or parenting plan action to buy a low-cost personal computer, with word-processing and email capacity, and a cheap printer. Help us help you save money. But no matter what, call Mason Law in Spokane, WA, at (509) 443-3681 for all your family law needs.
