Tech-savvy attorneys find niche in new technology

WOODSTOCK – At Prime Law Group in Woodstock, old-school attorneys converge with new technology for a formula that managing partner Jim Militello III hopes spells success.

While the law firm recently marked its first year, its veteran lawyers can boast deep roots in McHenry County. Militello and fellow partner Jeremy Shaw, along with the three other attorneys have a combined 94 years of legal practice.

“We’ve been in the community a long time even though it’s a new name,” Militello said.

Prime Law Group specializes in local government, corporate law, real estate, family law and civil litigation. Militello estimates Prime Law Group has 285 clients including a number of local municipalities and townships.

In the past year Militello has put blood, sweat and tears into launching Prime Law Group – a firm that eschews the conventional way of naming the practice after its partners, and one that embraces technology and social media.

“It’s a name all attorney could embrace and get around,” Militello said.

Prime Law Group focuses on technology as a way to net new clientele. Attorneys maintain blogs, its Facebook page has nearly 300 likes, and the firm even developed a free personal injury app for mobile devices.

“We find that we get a good amount of our clients from Facebook,” Militello said.

The cutting-edge personal injury app is what Militello called an “accident tool kit,” one that allows users to document the details of an accident on the spot. Users can immediately forward to the information to attorneys at Prime Law Group, or simply record an incident when it’s fresh one’s mind.

“You want this app before you get into an accident,” Militello said.

The app also applies to slips and falls, workers compensation, even dog bites.

But Militello warns, with a laugh, “please do not drive and use the app.”
