Why should you use Calloquy? Read this article to find out why.


What is Calloquy’s purpose?

The platform’s purpose is to assist lawyers by making litigation easier. The platform executes this intention by making client and team strategy sessions convenient and easily accessible by authorized participants. 


What are Calloquy's mission and vision?

Calloquy's mission is to modernize the delivery of legal services and enhance access to justice, with a primary focus on creating a virtual meeting and litigation platform that improves efficiency throughout the life cycle of a case. 

Our vision is to create a world in which unnecessary costs and court delays are no longer a standard feature of the legal system. Our team will improve access to justice by making it easier and more economical for lawyers, third-party neutrals, and courts to connect and conduct cases seamlessly.


How does Calloquy contribute to society?

Calloquy is a for-profit public benefit company on a social mission. We understand that closing the digital divide is a necessary step in ensuring the shift toward removing barriers to social justice, and virtual legal proceedings can improve access to justice rather than entrench historical inequities. 


Who came up with Calloquy? 

Calloquy was borne to create a more efficient and cost-effective judicial system, and that mission is a cornerstone of what Calloquy seeks to accomplish. With our CEO David Carter's lead of iron-willed resolve and profound sensitivity, our team understands that while determination is commonplace in the tech arena, empathy and understanding are not.

Before founding Calloquy, Carter began his career as a telecommunications lawyer, focusing heavily on expanding opportunities both here in the USA and internationally for rural and underserved communities. Carter has worked with hundreds of rural phone companies and dozens of Native American tribes to create equity, increase opportunities, and promote the efficient use of taxpayer resources. He also understands that being an attorney affords opportunity, and with that opportunity comes an obligation to advocate for meaningful societal change.

Early in his career, Carter developed an innovative approach to problem-solving and litigation acumen to become the youngest equity partner in an AmLaw 100 law firm.  During his tenure in Washington, D.C., Carter soon realized that the hours spent in airports, on airplanes, and in hotels were less than economical for all involved. He similarly became concerned when litigators began perilously using the same videoconferencing platform for every scheduled deposition, virtual trivia night, and family meeting. Applying his adept understanding of litigation and unparalleled problem-solving acumen, he developed Calloquy.

What does Calloquy reference?

Most generally, the term colloquy refers to a formal conversation. In the legal industry, a colloquy is a highly formalized and routine conversation among the judge and lawyers. The word can also refer to the conversation a judge has with a defendant to assure the judge that the defendant understands their rights with respect to a plea.

By changing that first vowel, we at Calloquy aim to make our web app synonymous with the formal and routine conversations of the traditional colloquy, albeit via videoconferencing calls.


How does Calloquy work?

Calloquy works just like the remote video conferencing platforms you’ve been using for virtual happy hours and family gatherings. The differences in the Calloquy web app lie in its functions of providing familiar in-person judicial proceedings, formal remote video conferencing, and secure evidence management.

The platform’s integrated case management tools streamline the complex litigation process by allowing meetings and proceedings to be scheduled, exhibits to be managed, and transcripts to be created and archived all in one place.

With Calloquy, attorneys and paralegals can plan, schedule, and attribute case meetings directly from the dashboard. Parties associated with those cases can be notified of scheduled meetings in a few clicks with our Schedule a Meeting feature that sends personalized email invites for every in-house strategy meeting, pre-deposition client consultation, and assembly with opposing counsel.
