What tasks law firm can outsource to a virtual assistant?by Christe Clarke Marketing Manger at Cogneesol
The work routine of lawyers involves analyzing cases and building arguments. Besides this, they have to handle clerical work, manage social media presence, take care of customer service, and other offices related work to stay competitive. They cannot perform all the activities on their own, so they need to hire clerical staff for all this non-legal stuff.
However, small firms and solo law practitioners often find it difficult to afford an in-house administrative team for this. With the development of technology the virtual assistant came into existence, now it is possible to connect remotely and perform the assigned task efficiently.
Nowadays, instead of hiring in-house staff many lawyers opt to use virtual assistants to carry out a wide range of functions for law firms. Virtual legal assistants perform administrative office support for their law practice–online. By employing them one doesn’t have to invest in infrastructure and costly software. They can work for you depending on your need thereby saving time and money.
The legal tasks that law firms can outsource to a virtual assistant are as follows:
1. Case management, which includes the collection and review of documents, along with answering the client questions.
2. Legal research and writing, a time-consuming and difficult task to handle in-house.
3. Medical records reviews
4. Billing management
5. Patent services
6. Contract management
7. Expert witness services, including those who serve as witnesses and consultants in various matters and who can provide reports and expert testimony in Federal and State court trials and legal proceedings
