Family Law Discovery Starter Kit
Get Started Quickly With Discovery
Ah discovery....you either love it or hate it once you get to know it. Personally, I love it. But it took me a while to learn it and understand it.
If you're like everyone else in the world right now, though, your office can't afford the time for your new assistant to slowly get to know it. Discovery takes time, and that's just not a luxury most law firms have right now with this virus causing businesses to move their work home. You simply can't be available for your assistant to come into your office at any given moment with, "Hey, I think I finished this, can you look it over for me?" or "I have a question, can you answer it for me?"
And then there's the issue of having to organize the discovery electronically. This can be a daunting task on a normal basis but to new assistant that doesn't have the hands on guidance and training that comes with being in office, this task can seem insurmountable.
"Mrs. Sears' role within our law firm included working with clients, working with discovery, transcribing dictation, helping to develop pleadings and correspondence in compliance with appropriate rules of procedure. Mrs. Sears was also very well organized and prompt in all of her work."

I know the coming days, weeks and months are going to be difficult for small law firms. The last thing you need to do is worry (as much) about your new assistant that you've had to set up remotely.
I've pulled a few lessons from my more expansive training program to help get your new assistant trained on discovery. It's by no means everything, but it should get them started without you having to worry about constantly supervising them from afar.
And the best part? They'll have this guide to refer to over and over again. It's hard enough to be available multiple times throughout the day when you're in the office. Now that most firms are having to work remotely, you won't have to worry about being available as much (cause let's face it, you've got A LOT going on right now) for some of those repetitive questions relating to discovery.
I'm offering this training at a deeply discounted price for those affected by COVID19 (which is all of us).
Take advantage of it today - it's a limited time offer.
"Maylee provided remote assistance services for me on a divorce case involving a substantial amount of discovery. The project was completed entirely remotely. The skills Maylee brought to the project were excellent."

I help family law attorneys reduce their stress, create more time in their schedule, and get them ready to take on more revenue.
I know, you’re probably thinking “if you don’t provide winning lottery numbers, how do you do that?”
Two words: Staff training.
Hi there! I’m Maylee.
Raised by a Marine in a very unstable household, I learned very quickly in life that there are no such things as obstacles.My dad called it “being rebellious”. I called it being innovative, thinking outside the box, and problem-solving. You say tomato, I say tomáto.
I also quickly learned the meaning of “stress”, “anxiety”, and “crap-how-do-I-fix-this” (all of which have been a constant part of my vocabulary ever since).
My mission is to reduce stress.
I don’t have to tell you that the legal field is overflowing with stress.As someone who has been battling anxiety since before she could walk and talk (thank you early child hood trauma), I know firsthand that when stress starts taking over, internal chaos rises, and that shit spreads to everything you touch – creating that icky feeling of being disorganized, overwhelmed, and like you just can’t. With anything.
That’s why I help family law attorneys with training.When you’ve already got the stress of a full schedule of Court appearances, client phone calls, running a business, and a million (and one) other things, the last thing you need is to rearrange your schedule to answer the same questions – over and over again.
I believe that quality customer service is the cornerstone to any successful family law firm.
When I was hired as a receptionist in a family law firm over ten years ago, I brought with me a wealth of customer service experience, from fast food to adult entertainment.I was able to use that experience to read clients’ behaviors and interact with them in such a way that made them think they were getting what they wanted 97% of the time (that other 3%?You can’t please everyone everytime).
(Hint: Perception is a powerful tool.)
Quality customer service = more referrals
While it’s certainly no guarantee, it is a no-brainer.Happy, satisfied clients will refer you more business.Unsatisfied, disgruntled clients will tell people what a horrible experience they had with your firm.Where do you want to be?
I want to live in a world where:
Family law attorneys have knowledgeable, competent staff they can trust.
Anxiety isn’t such a soul-sucking part of daily life.
I don’t mind leaving the house, even when I think it’s too “peopley” outside.
My superpower is:
Seeing the bigger picture …except for that last episode of Suits.
Did not see that coming.
