Hilary Smith Highlighted in Georgia Bar Journal’s Tech Tips Article

The Farmworker Rights Division’s Regional Operations Manager and Paralegal, Hilary G. Smith, was featured in the October issue of the Georgia Bar Journal. Smith contributed to the “Legal Tech Tips” portion of the issue compiled by State Bar Pro Bono Coordinator, Mike Monahan. Commenting on her division’s use of Google Voice as a tool, Smith explained, “Google Voice is a dynamic tool that helps us better serve our clients. Clients text photos of original documents to be reviewed or added to their file, of the conditions of the barracks or hotels where they are housed, and farmworkers who work long hours can privately type us messages in the evenings without needing access to email. We are also able to send and receive messages with clients whose phones have run out of minutes but who still have texting capabilities. This helps our low-income clients whose tech and phone services are often sporadic maintain consistent contact and get all their materials and messages to their legal advocates.” To check out all the tech tips included in the column, see the full article on page 63 of the Journal.
