Each month, we are delighted to introduce you to one of the members of the Alkaloid Networks community, a coworking space on the Eastside Atlanta Beltline. This month we visited with Angelik Emonds of Edmonds Law Office of Civil Rights.
What are you working on right now?
Right now, Edmonds Law Office has several landlord tenant cases and employment discrimination cases. Since the CDC eviction ban was overturned by the United States Supreme Court, and the COVID-19 pandemic, the increase in the number of landlord tenant cases has been significant for my office.
She keeps up with all things civil related on her blog, Ask Angie.
A common misconception that I encounter in law is the notion that after you hire an attorney, you no longer have to be involved in your case. To effectively represent you, attorneys need to have a collaborative relationship and opens lines of communication. My firm allows clients to schedule their own monthly check-ins to keep that relationship going!
What is your favorite business or productivity tool?
My office uses case management software, Clio, to manage all aspects of a case. For clients, they can log into an encrypted portal to send messages, review important deadlines, and upload relevant evidence. The software is easy to use for my team and my clients.
I love the community here! I’ve been able to find a business owners that provide referrals and services that my firm needs!
What are your favorite amenities at Alkaloid?
Location, community, and free parking.
