Lawyers often have very interesting schedules. They are in the office some of the week, in court other parts of the week, and meeting with clients the rest of the week. Without a legal receptionist, it can get hectic and become difficult to handle all the tasks of the law office.
Even though an attorney’s office may not receive a high volume of daily calls, each call could be worth thousands of dollars. Missing even one potential client can devastate an attorney. How can an attorney make sure all the calls are answered, every day?
Legal receptionist costs
Of course, the obvious answer would be to hire a receptionist to handle all the incoming calls. However, this can be very expensive considering they won’t be on the phone all day long.
Often, law offices have their paralegals answering phone calls, which may seem like a good solution. The downside is that an employee trained to help with legal research and other legal tasks is taking time to answer phones when they could be utilized in a better way.
Small and solo law firms
As an attorney, you can have your cake and eat it, too. With a virtual receptionist, you will never miss an important call and you won’t need to pay a full salary for a receptionist within your office.
A virtual receptionist will free you and your legal team up to handle the needs of your paying clients. You will gain all the necessary benefits of hiring your own receptionist at a fraction of the cost.
