New Estate Planning Client Walkthrough

May 31 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

Teresa L. Bush Esq.
Drafting Webinar

Subscriber Drafting Webinars provide continued training on various aspects of using the InterActive Legal software, usually focusing on drafting particular documents or using certain drafting options.  These webinars are free to ILS subscribers. They provide insight and training regarding specific documents and options available within the drafting systems. Subscribers will receive an email outlining the topic of each drafting webinar with instructions for registration.

Webinar Description

A potential new client has contacted your office to see if your firm can prepare their estate plan.  What is your first step?  There is no one right answer to this question – some attorneys will schedule an in-person conference or an online meeting, others might schedule an exploratory phone call first.  Some might email a questionnaire in advance to gather preliminary information, while others wait to do that until sitting across from the potential client.  In this webinar, we will demonstrate various ways your InterActive Legal drafting system can help with this initial process, starting with that first contact, and then assist after you agree to the representation.

We’ll cover the types of client questionnaires or intake forms that can be sent either automatically or manually, what the next steps are when the client completes the form, and how to move from there into the drafting process after everyone agrees to move forward.  The documents and processes we will demonstrate are available in all practice systems, although some may be available only in the online versions.  Non-drafting users who might be the ones setting up new clients are also encouraged to attend.  

Continuing Education Credits

InterActive Legal is not an approved Continuing Education (CE) Sponsor. However, several states and regulatory agencies for a variety of professionals that participate on our teleconferences may still receive continuing education credit for their participation. If a participant wishes to receive CE credit for their participation in these teleconferences, they must apply to receive credit on their own and through their individual states and regulatory authorities. It is the responsibility of the participant to file for CE credit and is not guaranteed by the webinar sponsors.
