Murtha Cullina Rolls-Out “Murtha Minutes”
October 22, 2013
Hartford, CT (October 22, 2013) – Murtha Cullina LLP is pleased to announce the launch of the firm’s “Murtha Minutes.”
Murtha Minutes are brief, educational videos that highlight various legal issues and topics of interest to individuals and businesses. Each video takes a simple, conversational approach to evaluating commonly discussed areas of the law.
Specifically, the first of the firm’s Murtha Minutes examine issues related to trust and estate planning.
“The idea began as a way to create more exposure and depth within the firm’s Trusts and Estate Department,” said Mark F. Korber, Murtha Cullina attorney and Chair of the Trusts and Estate Department. “While we understand, and value, one-on-one in-person communication with each of our clients, we also understand that it is important to offer information in an easily accessible and easy to comprehend format. Through these videos, we try to touch on the estate planning issues most families should consider addressing. We want the Murtha Minutes to serve as a resource to our client-base.”
To date the firm has posted five Murtha Minutes on estate planning topics that include, the basics of a trust, defining a special needs trust, defining revocable and irrevocable trusts, choosing a trustee and funding a living trust.
Going forward, the Murtha Minutes will expand to feature additional legal industries and topics of interest to individuals, businesses and governmental organizations
“From a communications and marketing perspective, these videos are a terrific vehicle to reach a new audience and to build exposure among our current base,” stated Debra Sciarra, Director of Marketing at Murtha Cullina LLP. “They increase the breadth of our reach by establishing additional touch points and increased access to the knowledge and experience our attorneys can provide. Like any business, we are always looking to share information with our clients, and through our Murtha Minutes, we have put a creative spin on marketing our services and helpful information.”
Murtha Cullina’s Murtha Minutes are housed on the firm’s website. To view, visit www.murthalaw.com and click the ‘MurthaMinutes’ button located on the bottom right of the homepage.
Ms. Sciarra also commented that, “more broadly, the goal is to make our website a resource, or an informational hub with varied forms of media and content for all of our viewers. As technology and communications methods continue to evolve with trends in web design, email marketing and social media, it is critical the firm keep abreast of how media is consumed. To meet these demands, our videos deliver useful snippets of information in an accessible and succinct format.”
