Growing Your Law Firm with Virtual Paralegals

This year has brought an increase in remote work across industries, including throughout the legal world. And this shift from office to home is not going away anytime soon. Lawyers are tasked with finding new solutions to this new working norm.


Remote work benefits


Benefits of remote work include more flexible scheduling, less commuting, increased productivity, and more time to spend with family and loved ones. Working from home also can mean that attorneys are spending less time on work since they’re not staying at the office until late hours of the night.


Remote work environments also require that attorneys embrace new technologies, as workflows have been forced to change.


Using Paralegal as a Service


One innovative solution is utilizing the work of virtual paralegals, who can be hired on a case-by-case basis and can help out with legal work from anywhere. Paralegal as a Service from NextChapter is an on-demand paralegal service, where attorneys can work with experienced, friendly legal professionals on a variety of case management tasks, like client intake, document review, and petition filing.


Working with a virtual paralegal means that lawyers can off-load some of their work without the need to hire an in-house paralegal. This also means less office space and salary costs. Attorneys only pay for the work they need on each case, so they can get extra help during their busiest months.


Paralegal as a Service helps lawyers get back their time, improve workflows and response times, and avoid stress when managing a remote team.
