Savannah Law Firm Launches Mobile App Along With Google Nexus Tablet to Empower Clients and Improve Communication

Savannah, Georgia (PRWEB) March 12, 2013

Savannah-based law firm, Spiva Lewis LLC, is leading the way to the future of personal injury law by empowering their clients with an Accident Safety Mobile App and Google Nexus Tablet technology that lets them directly participate in their case and have input and control in the outcome of their recovery.

Often, when people are injured and have legal representation, the only communication tool they have is a phone to leave a voice message for their attorney, explained firm-founder Attorney Howard Spiva. By providing Google Nexus tablets that are pre-loaded with helpful, customized apps, we can enhance our service and maximize the results for our clients”.

The Google Nexus Tablet, which is loaned out to Spivas seriously injured and hospitalized clients, is equipped with various features that will keep client and lawyer in constant contact throughout the process of the case and securely gather evidence that will tell the clients story in a way that was never before possible.

No one can tell your story better than you, explained Spiva, The more evidence we have that proves your harms and losses and how the injury has changed your life, the better we can paint a picture for the insurance company, the defense lawyer and ultimately to a jury.

From day one, specialized applications begin capturing interviews with medical providers, nurses, co-workers, friends and family to document clients post-injury life and tell their story in the most favorable light.

At the touch of a button, the firm and their client can quickly and securely share information via existing Google programs like Gmail, Google Docs, chat features and Google calendaring. Additionally, the firms customized applications are programmed to document the clients medical recovery and illustrate daily challenges and struggles.

The tablet also contains apps that will give a holistic approach to healing, with hopes of reducing stress and assisting the healing process by includes reading materials, soothing soundtracks and even entertaining games to pass the time.

In using innovative Google technology, the firm believes they are raising the bar for all attorneys. It gives clients unprecedented access to the handling of their client case and gives the lawyer an all-access pass to previously untapped evidence.

Mobile apps and Nexus tablets have revolutionized our ability to interact with our clients and involve them in the outcome of their case. Google-powered touch tablets help us put the personal touch in personal injury law and propels our client-first approach into the 21st century, concluded Spiva.
