Some lawyers have been asking me: why do I get new posts e-mailed from Dynamic Legal Forms and what do I do when I get a post in my email inbox?
Here’s the answer:
Instead of searching and browsing Dynamic Legal Forms all day long to find the right post to reply to, Dynamic Legal Forms has a feature that allows user posts to be automatically sent to lawyers who have registered to receive those posts – based on their City, Legal Area, and Matter(s). For example, if a lawyer registered in Toronto (City) indicates that they practice Criminal Law (Legal Area) and Assault (Matter), then they would receive all the posts that match those 3 criteria. Another example would be that a lawyer registered in Toronto (City) indicates upon registering that they practice Family Law (Legal Area) and Legal Separation (Matter) would receive all the posts that match those 3 criteria.
When that lawyer gets a new post in their inbox, it appears as a post and there’s a line that says at the top of the e-mail something like: “PLEASE REPLY ABOVE THIS LINE”. If the lawyer wants to respond to the user who made the post, then they would simply need to click ‘reply’ to the post and then reply above the line. When the lawyer sends the e-mail, it actually gets sent to us first (i.e. Dynamic Legal Forms) and we automatically forward the response to the user’s e-mail (to maintain anonymity).
