I’ve never been more psyched to get an autoresponder. Notice that not only is this attorney blocking off his or her schedule for emails, but is doing so at strategic times: right before lunch and the final bell.
This allows a head of steam to be built up in the morning, a la the “don’t check your email in the morning” philosophy.
And I would bet money that this attorney is not going to get into a car wreck responding to his or her mobile device while driving.
Thank you for your email. In an effort increase efficiency and effectiveness, I am now checking my email two times per day, at 11 am and 4 pm. If your situation is urgent, and cannot wait until 11 or 4, please call my office at xxx-xxx-xxxx and we will attempt to assist you. Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to assisting you.
