Providing Paralegal and Support Services Virtually to Law Firms, Solo Attorneys, Small Businesses and Physicians across the nation.
A virtual paralegal offers services at any given time when needed for specific projects or on-going assignments that are catered specifically to the needs of the client. It is a win-win situation when the client gets the experienced help it needs while only paying for the hours required to complete the requested services. A virtual paralegal gets the job done in a timely manner without "milking" the clock to make those required monthly billable hours all while producing quality work. If you find yourself short staffed, have an emergency because a box of documents has been dumped on your desk that needs review, have a trial or mediation around the corner with depositions that need to be summarized, or simply just need the extra man power, a virtual paralegal is the perfect solution.
WHY USE A VIRTUAL/FREELANCE PARALEGAL?
SAVE MONEY – Eliminate the overhead that comes with salaried employees, including benefits, bonuses, 401K matching, no office space and best of all no overtime.
EFFICIENCY – With the increasing use of electronic discovery, many firms are finding their support staff so overwhelmed with document production and records to review, produce, analyze and index, this leaves little time for focus on other important aspects of the case. Outsourcing this type of work relieves in-house support staff to handle other portions of a file, such as legal research, assistance with drafting briefs and more client contact.
ON-DEMAND – Suddenly short staffed due to illness or vacation? Staff on disability, maternity or other types of short-term leave? A virtual and freelance paralegal is able to step in filling the void needed keep the support on files running smoothly.
RATES ARE NEGOTIABLE
The definition of a paralegal by the American Bar Association (ABA) is "a person, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible." A virtual paralegal meets this definition and furthermore possess the skills and expertise necessary to perform this type of work independently in a virtual setting through a fully equipped remote office. A paralegal, whether in-house, virtual or freelance, is NOT an attorney and by law cannot give legal advice.
