As a small law firm owner, you have cases that keep on coming your way, pressing for your continued attention. Your secretary looks even busier, preparing all the required documents and handling all the paralegal activities. But still you have anxious moments on the eleventh hour of every activity be it preparing the final legal document or attending court sessions or taking adjournment dates. So how do you effectively handle all these? This is where a virtual assistant steps in.

Most law firms, as they grow, are finding it difficult to handle more secretaries, who in turn handle the escalating back office and other legal work load. This is why most of these law firms are smartly switching on to virtual assistants, who get your back office and other paralegal tasks done without much bothering you mentally and physically. This is where a virtual assistant heavily scores over your regular secretary. Most of these virtual assistants offer specialized services for law firms like:

Preparing all the necessary legal documents like: wills, power of attorney, legal and court forms, company documents, legal agreements and so on

Managing documents, converting formats, typing, proofreading, transcription, and other back-office jobs

Doing the research required for your cases based on your instructions

Handling all your client calls and making calls to collect information

Maintaining all your accounts and help you in filing your tax returns

Liaising with all your legal aids and other offices as per your instructions
