Our team at
Cantor Injury Law, LLC is proud to announce that our firm is now going paperless. Law firms go
through countless sheets and boxes of paper each day recording cases,
statements, depositions, and other legal documents, leading to an enormous
use of paper. In an effort to find a better organizational system for
our files and to help the environment, our firm has decided to forgo paper
files in favor of digital ones instead. All of our previous files and
all future files moving forward will now be digitally stored for client
convenience and to reduce our firm’s carbon footprint.
What Does This Mean for Our Clients?
Going paperless means our clients can now access their documents and files
at the touch of a button. If you have any questions about your case, you
can now search for the relevant terms electronically and store your necessary
documents on your computer. This can also help you save room in your home
office or filing cabinet at home. Instead of finding places for your folders
and papers, you can now store them digitally.
In addition to helping our clients, going paperless can also help our firm
improve our efficiency. We can find and read case files much more efficiently,
which can help us save time when researching for our cases. We now have
immediate access to our clients’ information at the touch of a button.

Are Paperless!” video, here.
Our Firm Cares About the Environment
Law firms use an enormous amount of paper each day. Not only do firms use
paper copies of documents and files, they also must maintain file cabinets
or storage units to hold each of their documented cases. For firms with
a large volume of cases, this can become very extensive. Instead of wasting
paper and materials in storage units, paperless firms can contain all
files on a server, saving time and wasting fewer resources.
Paper production is leading to deforestation across the globe, and most
of the paper we use in the U.S. is still collected from endangered forests.
The more paper our country uses, the more trees we lose. Besides this
obvious loss, paper production also causes groundwater pollution because
the chlorine used to bleach paper harms the environment as well. According
to National Geographic, the large amounts of energy required to fuel the
production and transportation of paper also leads to anthropogenic global warming.
By moving to a paper-free system, our firm is doing our part to help save
the environment, all while adopting a simpler system for our clients.
