TECHNOLOGY

ADAMS | STIRLING is a leader in the legal industry in its use of technology to deliver quality work product to our clients. Doing so also increases the efficiency of our attorneys, which enables us to reduce costs for our clients.

Paperless. Our offices are entirely paperless. We utilize high-speed scanners to convert all paper files into electronic ones. In addition to being eco-friendly, our cloud-based software allows us to instantly access client records whether in the office or on the road. No longer do we wait for file clerks to rummage through dusty paper files hoping to find the right record days after the request is made.

Cloud Desktop. To keep pace with cutting edge technology, we utilize a "Cloud Desktop" environment. Instead of operating from a local server in our corporate office, our document management system, accounting programs, office productivity suite, time tracking software, internal communications operate in the cloud.

Cloud desktops allow our attorneys to operate from any device anywhere in the world with significant security enhancements that benefit our clients as well as the Firm.

In addition to powerful firewalls and anti-virus security, our servers are housed in hardened Department of Defense-compliant facilities. It allows us to serve our clients regardless of natural disasters that might affect our offices.

Data Portal. We utilize data portals for depositing large files and litigation records in an encrypted location for client review. It allows client access without emailing sensitive records over unsecured lines.

Financial. We utilize the latest in financial software so we can electronically transmit pdf files to our clients. When they want a history of their billings, we can send it in minutes. If they prefer monthly electronic billings instead of paper, we can save trees.

Phone System. Our phone system is also cloud-based. Our phone system immediately relays phone messages as an audio file via email to our attorneys. It means they can pick up their messages on laptops and cell phones wherever in the world they might be. Because they are a wav file, the messages can be saved to the client's file.

Video Conferencing. Because we have staffed offices throughout California, we use video conferencing to stay connected with each other. In addition, we are using it to connect with clients in remote areas and save them the cost of our travel time.

Ergonomic. We also supply our attorneys and staff with the latest ergonomic devices to keep them healthy and productive. We use high-efficiency commercial grade desktop computers with solid state drives, dual monitors, split keyboards, ergonomic chairs, and flexi desks so attorneys can stand or sit while working.

Intranet. In addition to our award-winning public websites (Davis-Stirling.com, and CommercialCID.com), we employ an internal website for the firm. It allows all our attorneys to work together in teams, to post the firm’s policies and procedures for easy access by attorneys, and to implement master calendaring.

CIDLAW Listserv. We created and manage a listserv for CID lawyers throughout California that allows collaboration on new case law, legislation, and problems facing our industry.
