Technology changes at an alarming rate.
To keep up with the needs of clients, cell phones and email access are necessary for adequate communication. Trying to practice law without these modern conveniences is a handicap you can ill afford to have.
Even though the volume of new technology can be overwhelming, being up-to-date is necessary for the prudent practitioner. Well-organized email, smart internet surfing, cell phones and other portable devices can keep your life organized and balanced. Mobile devices can lead the unwitting attorney into the dangerous trap of a 24/7 practice. However, constant availability is not necessary in most practices.
As with any other form of communication, new technologies come with new dangers and confidentiality considerations. Every avenue must be explored to ensure that client data is fully protected.
Ignoring the risks of technology opens up serious ethical considerations for an attorney.
