Are Professional Records Retrieval Services Right for You?
Feb 10 2014 | posted by LORR Team
Many attorneys wrestle with the idea of using professional records retrieval services. They know that their staff could easily handle the task on their own – so why incur the extra cost? In reality, a professional records service can actually be highly beneficial in certain circumstances. It can save on time, provide better results, and often is more cost-effective than handling it in-house.
Not sure if professional records retrieval services are right for your current case? Just ask yourself these questions:
· Are you on a tight deadline? If you’re short on time, then you need to put your records request in the hands of a true professional – someone who can get the job done as accurately and quickly as possible. If you don’t, you could find yourself without a key piece of evidence when it comes time to present your case.
· Do you have a small staff? Consider this: if your staff is small, can you really afford to have one of your few employees consumed by record request tasks? Do you want them spending all their time filling out forms, making calls and sending faxes? Or do you have more pressing matters they could be tending to? If so, then a professional records service may be a more fitting solution.
· Is your case complicated? If your case is complex or requires hard-to-get records, then it’s probably a task best left to the pros. A professional records service will know best how to get the job done and get it done right. In fact, they’ve probably handled a case just like yours before!
· Do you have more important tasks to work on? Sure, you could handle the records requests yourself, but do you really have time for that? Wouldn’t your time be better spent connecting with clients, gathering evidence or marketing your firm? If yes, then hand your records requests off to a professional service, and get back to the more important tasks at hand.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you could definitely benefit from using professional records retrieval services. Contact LORR today to get started!
