Some meetings with your lawyer are better face to face. Hegarty Solicitors now offers appointments by SkypeTM to enable face to face meetings without the inconvenience of you leaving your home or office.
This will benefit both business clients and individuals. We all lead increasingly busy lives, the opportunity to save even just half an hour’s travelling time will be significant for many people.
Angela Babb, Marketing Manager at Hegarty, explains “We are delighted to offer this service; we aim to be as accessible as possible so saving our clients’ valuable time and effort adds to this goal.
We have trialled SkypeTM appointments in our conveyancing department and have found it to be very popular as it negates the need for clients to come into the office purely for ID purposes. This will remove some of the geographical barriers – we have for many years found people coming to us from further afield having been recommended by business colleagues and friends. Now offering SkypeTM appointments makes those engagements more convenient. Having said that, there are always going to be people who prefer to come into the office and see their lawyer in person and this option is always available as well.”
Any client wishing to take advantage of a SkypeTM appointment may do so – simply mention your interest to your lawyer when you speak to them.
