Most lawyers still use emails to communicate with their clients, which is not encrypted and is susceptible to being read by others.

Lawyers need a way to communicate securely with clients. A properly-configured communication portal like MyCase is a great way to get away from email for confidential communications. This also provides billing facilities, contacts, calendars etc.

          4. Page Vault

You see a webpage which has some information infringing the copyright of your client. But you are apprehensive that it might be removed by the time you report it. What other option do have to gather evidence? You can “save” the page or get a screenshot. However, we have a better option.

Page vault is a new software which resolves the issue of authentication and provides storage space for critical documents derived from a URL. There can be no tampering of the saved page. The “capture” is identical to the URL site and the web page evidence cannot be altered.
