Later, Ms. Napolitano further described the Deferred Action plan and defended the Obama administration's role in it.

Focus: Apps - Today, more than one billion apps are downloaded each month from the Apple App Store. The marketplace is changing to one that is increasingly mobile phone-driven. Consumers now look for apps when deciding what to do or buy. You can order dinner and compare cars on your phone, but the legal field has been reluctant to enter this field and connect with customers in this way, so you would become one of the first firms with a footprint in the world of smartphone apps. With our help, you can market your practice through a custom-designed iPhone application. You will reach a new audience that your website might miss. In addition, you will be able to connect with a more global audience. We can begin with something as simple as converting some or all of your current website to app form. In addition, we will add a news feed from our website, which will give people a reason to come back to the app time and again and it gives your brand an enhanced presence. We will typically also build out direct contact (email and telephone) capabilities, so that prospective clients could contact your offices directly. You will be able to reach prospective clients globally - not just in the U.S. For information, click here or email
