Introduction to Contacts
The Contact record allows your organization to collect information about the people your organization interacts with. The Contact record helps support (and is supported by) other records (Matters, Accounts, Activities, etc.).
Contacts may optionally be assigned to an Account which provides relevant business hierarchy for Contacts within organizations.
In AdvoLogix, Matters have the ability to be related to a Primary Contact which is useful for identifying a specific individual for whom the Matter is related to. Additional Contacts can be related to a Matter through the Participants related list or by adding custom lookup fields to the Matter object. Common Contact relationships might include outside counsel, judges, witnesses, and consultants.
