Stowe Family Law has launched a service which allows clients unable to attend one of the firm’s seven offices to Skype their family solicitor.
The popular video conferencing software is available on available for most makes of phone, tablet and computer.
Clients sometimes find it difficult to get away from work or family commitments for an initial consultation or to meet with their solicitors as their cases progress. In the past there was no alternative: late finishes or problems with the kids simply meant that scheduled meetings would have to be postponed.
But modern technology opens new possibilities and provided the person can find a little time to sit down with their laptop or phone, they can now still go ahead with the meeting, even if they are stuck at home on the sofa or stranded by their desk.
Senior Partner Marilyn Stowe said:
“Many of our professional and commercial clients are constantly on the move and don’t always have time to come into one of our offices for a consultation. Meanwhile, domestic problems are piling up in the background causing needless worry and anxiety.”
First released in 2003, Skype was developed in Scandinavia and how has more than 660 million users. It has been acquired several times. Auction site eBay bought the programme in 2005, later selling a majority stake to a group of investors. In 2011 Skype was sold to software giant Microsoft for more than $8 billion.
