- Firm Name & Slogan: LaRue Law Group PC
- Location:Sugar Land, Texas (near Houston)
- What does your firm do? Our firm offers big firm experience without the big firm price. We have developed a virtual practice (with the help of Practice Panther!), where our attorneys are spread out throughout the state and can effectively deliver legal services and offer the client open communication and efficiency with their file. We mainly focus on business legal needs for small to mid-sized businesses.
- How did the firm start and how did it grow? Our firm started with the principal shareholder, Patrick LaRue, and his quest to operate a virtual practice – that is, mobility, efficiency and delivering a quality service from attorneys that are not necessarily in the same office. Legal consumers are demanding the same quality legal service at a faster pace, and the only way to do this is through better technology. After spending over 15 years at AmLaw 100 law firms, Mr. LaRue decided to take his experience, knowledge and vision to create a virtual law firm. High rises and expensive leases are not the future for
- How did you do things before PracticePanther and how has PracticePanther helped today? Prior to Practice Panther, we were using a plethora of online programs, integrations and other software to piecemeal a law practice management system. Practice Panther has enabled the firm to grow with its ease of use, mobility and “one stop shop” appeal. This has cut down on monthly program fees and allows the attorneys in other cities to collaborate and keep track of clients and files. We expect revenues to increase by 20-30% by switching to Practice Panther this year due to its streamlined architecture.
- What is your favorite thing about PracticePanther? Customer Service! I love it. You can chat, email, talk, or watch a video. The customer service and trainers at Practice Panther are much more than I anticipated. Practice Panther really focuses a big piece of their model on customer training and satisfaction.
- What is one piece of advice you would offer other lawyers in your industry? Communicate. Respond to clients timely and offer a method of open communication. So many lawyers get in trouble for ignoring or not effectively communicating with their clients.
