How a Virtual Paralegal can Help Solo Attorneys
Being a solo attorney can be exciting and rewarding. It can also mean long hours and competing demands from the practice of law and the day-to-day operation of a business. For many solo practitioners, keeping expense low is key to being profitable, and one of the biggest expenses is staff. At the same time, having proper paralegal support can make a solo attorney more effective (and can also make life so much easier). Our virtual paralegal service can give solo attorneys a competitive edge by providing cost-effective paralegal support.
Having an in-house paralegal can mean significant costs for a solo attorney. There is the salary for the paralegal, the office space, the furniture, the computer, and other miscellaneous costs that all add up rather quickly. That is especially true when there is not enough work to keep the paralegal busy the entire day. Also, since qualified paralegals almost certainly wish to work full-time, solo attorneys who don’t need a full-time paralegal will be hard-pressed to find (and keep) a skilled paralegal on a part-time basis.
Using our virtual paralegal service allows solo attorneys to have the best of both worlds. Our virtual paralegals can provide all manner of paralegal support, while the solo attorney only pays for the actual time that is used, all without having to set aside additional office space or worry about managing an employee.
