Judges like lawyers who no longer show up
More than 100 courts in California are giving lawyers the opportunity to be more
efficient, more successful and more appreciated by overworked judges who just don't want
to see them. These benefits are possible thanks to a California ruling and a remarkable
piece of technology - the telephone.
The recent passage of Rule 298 allows lawyers to make routine court appearances by
telephone to many courts in California. To act on this mandate, numerous state court
systems have awarded exclusive contracts to ConferenceCallService for its Appearance by
Phone service. The convenience of handling routine court matters from their desks without
having to battle traffic to the courthouse makes Appearance by Phone a natural for busy
The lawyer is charged a flat fee of $19.95 for using the teleconference service - a
cost well below the lawyer's hourly fee plus travel expenses.
