TORT TALK TIP



HANDLE YOUR MAIL THE DAY IT COMES IN


One of the best ways to keep your files moving is to answer the regular mail that comes in on the day that it comes in -- as you open your mail, dictate a letter or email in response to the mailing or to the client with a status update.

Give any mailings that provide notice of appointments for your calendar to your assistant with the rule being that the assistant must mark it down on the calendar the same day as opposed to being able to put it aside to do later.

When you run through your mail right away, it's done.  And the case is one step, however small, moved forward and closer to its eventual conclusion, whatever that may be.

As Ben Franklin once said, "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today."
