The conversations feature allows a client and professionals to have a secure chat within LegalAtoms. It works very much like popular messaging features on LinkedIn or Facebook — so users don’t have to learn new concepts.
The conversation can take place with a client and professional (including court officials) who are connected.
A conversation cannot have multiple participants – only the client and one professional OR between two professionals e.g. Court and Law Enforcement.
Here’s the view for the professional (court officials, law enforcement, lawyers, legal interns etc)

You can type a message and hit the arrow key. The client would receive the message.
The client would also receive an email and text notification that they have received a message (but not the message content). The client is expected to log in and then read the message. This provides a natural safeguard against someone monitoring the emails.
Later when the client replies, the professional account will see the following notifications
