Atlanta law firm myATLlaw | Slipakoff & Slomka held their first Facebook Live Legal Q&A Event on Monday, May 22. Audience members watched the public live stream on the firm’s Facebook page via Facebook Live. Lawyers, Howie Slomka and Adam Slipakoff, led the discussion on relevant legal topics and answered audience questions.
“It [Facebook Live] is a low-cost and efficient way for listeners to ask questions and determine how our law firm can assist them,” Slomka said. “I also hope that the video format allows users to ‘meet’ us and draw conclusions as to our demeanor and knowledge. That way, they will be able to see that we are both personable and knowledgeable attorneys.”
Slomka continued by describing the topics covered during the Facebook Live Legal Q&A session. “We covered whatever the viewers wanted, but most [audience] questions centered around entering the bankruptcy process and whether it could be a good or bad decision for them as potential filers.”
The use of social media platforms is a relatively new concept to most law firms, but Slipakoff feels that it is a highly effective way to reach clients.
“As our use of social media and technology expands, we will be able to reach more potential clients and better serve our current clients’ needs,” Slipakoff said. “We live in a digital world and we want to embrace it. Part of that is making Facebook Live Legal Q&A sessions a regular part of our social media outreach.”
With plans to continue developing their social media and fostering a strong online presence, it’s apparent that myATLlaw | Slipakoff & Slomka is not just a highly-respected law firm, but also one that embraces the use of technology and social media to connect and engage with clients. The firm’s goal, to put clients at the forefront and find better ways to connect with and serve them, offers a refreshing perspective to modern law.
“We are a unique firm in that we strive to make our clients the focal point of who we are and what we do,” Slipakoff said. “Essentially, we want to put the ‘person’ back into personal law.”
