"Because Lexington is centrally located, I am able to meet with lawyers all over the state without undue travel time or expense."

"In addition, my close proximity to the Kentucky Bar Center makes it easy for me to appear at evidentiary hearings, meet with prosecutors in the Office of Bar Counsel and review records in the Office of the Disciplinary Clerk."

"A face-to-face meeting or extended phone conversation is sometimes necessary to launch an attorney-client relationship properly. But once a good rapport has been established, it's rather easy to maintain communication by phone, fax
and electronic means.

After all, the most important issue is not the means of communication but how frequently it occurs, how much substance it contains and whether it empowers the client to make informed decisions.

Lawyers are comfortable with written communication. They don't need as much  'face time' as other people, so long as they are getting the information they need. And they're too busy to be trading phone calls all day.

That's where technology comes in. I have been showing other lawyers how to use technology for over twenty years. I use technology in my practice to move information around as quickly and effectively as possible, especially to my clients. The most recent example is my client extranet.

Tools of that nature make geographical location meaningless. I work as closely with lawyers several hundred miles away as I do with lawyers who are just across town."
