CONTACT SHALLEY AND MURRAY
One Number for Voice and Text
Call our main office telephone number any time. During business hours, especially in the mornings, our lawyers are frequently in Court. During off hours, our state of the art telephone system will still make it possible for you to reach a lawyer, although even our lawyers do sleep from time to time. Sometimes, you may need to leave a voice message. If so, we will make sure to respond as soon as we can. During off hours, you might want to try texting or emailing to increase the likelihood of getting an immediate response from one of our lawyers.
Please try texting us for what can often be the quickest way to get a response directly from one of the partners in the firm.
Please remember that although communications with a lawyer might generally be considered protected by attorney client privilege, texting ought not be considered a secure means to convey sensitive information. Texting should really be limited to reaching out and making first contact with a lawyer to arrange for a more secure communication. For example, texting your name and that you would like to discuss a DAT matter is probably more than sufficient to get the ball rolling.
Still have a fax machine? No worries. Fax away. Through the magic of modern technology, what you fax to us will magically transform into a web friendly PDF and be emailed directly to a partner in the firm. There is no machine in our office where incoming faxes linger and get lost.
While perhaps a little less immediate, email also provides potentially the quickest way to reach out to one of the lawyers.
Please remember that although communications with a lawyer might generally be considered protected by attorney client privilege, emailing ought not be considered as necessarily a secure means to convey sensitive information. Initially at least, emails should really be limited to reaching out and making first contact with a lawyer to arrange for a more secure communication. For example, emailing your name and that you would like to discuss a criminal court matter is probably more than sufficient to get the ball rolling.
VIDEO CONFERENCE (FACETIME, SKYPE, GOOGLE+ HANGOUT)
Sometimes, you want to have a live consultation but the logistics of getting together at a time convenient to everyone just make it unpleasant for everyone. Getting from one place to another, finding parking, and such are no longer a problem if you would like to schedule a video conference consultation. Almost every computer these days has a camera and there are numerous popular (and free) means to have video conference consultations. Video consultations offer the benefits of "face to face" discussions without the hassle and expense of getting to the office. Also, video conferences can be set up for times and days well beyond what would be considered normal office hours. (Think evenings and weekends). This means you don't have to take off from work or school just to consult with a lawyer.
All you need is a computer device equipped with a camera (most computers, especially mobile computers, tablet devices, and smart phones will have a camera) and a reliable web connection. We use Apple devices at Shalley and Murray. Therefore, we can use FaceTime. But anyone with a web connection can use Skype or Google + hangouts to have a video conference as well, all for free. If you would like to set up a video consultation using FaceTime, Skype, or Google+ Hangouts, just let us know and we will pick a date and time convenient for you, nights and weekends included.
