Avoiding Phone Tag
Everyone knows how unproductive telephone tag is, not to mention frustrating. At one time or another, we all get caught up in calling, missing the other person, leaving a message, waiting for a return call and missing the return call, and then starting over.
Here are three things you can do to short-circuit phone tag. (1) Leave a specific message .That is, say what you were planning to say. Don't stop after name and number. (2) Talk with your attorney's assistant if the attorney is not available. Often, the assistant can answer your questions. (3) If the assistant can't immediately answer your question, let him./her call you back with the answer or information you need.
Don't get locked into the pointless exercise of telephone tag! Save time and money.
