About the Webinar:

Long before the virus, however, Public defense attorneys were bogged down in all the communication necessary to manage, progress and close their cases with positive outcomes. Learn how leveraging instant messaging, email, phone and SMS text in one case management platform can save lots of time, optimizing productivity and business processes.
