In addition to our attorneys. Riley, Pope and Laney, LLC employs a group of highly trained and experienced default services paralegals. Our paralegals bring substantial value in achieving our results and are respected members of our team. A distinguishing factor of our firm is that our paralegals are experienced in all aspects of the default services  process. This experience allows us to design our work flow process so that we assign a dedicated paralegal to a file for the entire life of the file. This process model provides our clients with a single paralegal point of contact and fosters an environment of accountability and responsibility. While other practice models utilize an assembly line format in which files are passed from paralegal to paralegal depending on the task, we believe our process distinguishes us and achieves better results for our clients.

To provide our attorneys and paralegals with the tools they need to succeed, Riley, Pope and Laney, LLC, invests in  state of the art information technology platforms. Our technology provides substantial work flow efficiencies and enhances client communication and client access to information. Our goal is to maintain flexibility and scalability within our information technology systems so that we can meet your current business needs. We also are dedicated to maintaining a secure environment with built in disaster recovery plans. At Riley, Pope and Laney, LLC, our goal is to stay ahead of the technology curve.
