Email is the most common form of communication in almost every business. Law firms are no exception. Email is fast and convenient. An entire discussion or exchange can occur and conclude over a short period of time and that discussion is memorialized in the emails. Email can be received anywhere the recipient has access to their account, which these days is just about anywhere.

Along with these many positive qualities, email also has negatives. There are social aspects such has how impersonal email can be and a tendency to say things in an email that would never be said in person or over the phone. Used the wrong way, email can also have dramatic ethical implications for lawyers. Just like a letter placed in the mail, email travels a path from sender to recipient. However, unlike a letter that remains unopened along this path, an email may be copied from server to server along the path. It can be intercepted, read by others, forwarded inadvertently and subject to the infamous reply all.

We know that Word's find and replace function can be used to replace words and phrases. It can also be used to replace non-printing special characters that may find their way into your document and alter the formatting.

In order to find and replace special characters, use the Replace keyboard shortcut, CTRL+H to bring up the dialog box. You will see a More button. Click it or press ALT+M to reveal your Search Options. At the bottom under Replace will be a Special button. Click on it or press ALT+E.

The Rules Have Changed

In 2013, the ABA Model Rules were modified in a couple of significant ways as it relates to technology. To date, Ohio and 25 other states have adopted the changes I'm about to describe. If your state hasn't adopted the changes yet, I would expect them at some point in the near future. No state's rules of professional conduct can continue ignoring technology for much longer (Michigan, Indiana & Kentucky, I'm talking about you).
