Remote Representation

Limited availability of certain products and services in the smaller islands of Hawaii is a fact of life. It is also a fact that servicemen and servicewomen are deployed to the far reaches of the world. Nevertheless, teleconferencing and social networks illustrate how it is less and less important to be physically present to conduct business, interact with colleagues, or catch up with family and friends.

The team at Christopher D. Thomas Attorney at Law is well aware of this phenomenon. We are responsive to the needs of our clients even when it is outside of normal business hours. Lawyers have long been able to represent clients in court on certain matters, and Mr. Thomas often works with military and civilian clients where it is less efficient, less complicated or just plain impossible to meet face to face. Whether we are in the same room or not, we strive to serve our clients with the highest quality representation in court or before a panel, drafting custody agreements or other legal matters.

Issues Regarding Digital And Virtual Representation

We have become accustomed to interacting with people online or via phone. However, there are still a few legal issues to provide virtual or remote legal services in this way. These include:

  • The use of digital information: As per the recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, electronically stored information (ESI) in computers, email, voice mail, digital platforms and devices can be used in litigation. It is important to be aware of this.
  • Confidentiality and security: We employ secure, web-based technology that allows us to work remotely while still steadfastly maintaining strict legal standards and the confidentiality necessary for effectively representing our clients.
  • Payment: We are like any other business and can easily be paid through digital means.
  • New technology: We are always on the lookout new technology to more efficiently serve our clients.
