FAQ's

The Free Trial

Why would I hire Answering Legal when I have staff?

Answering Legal provides support on the 3rd and 4th ring, after you miss the call in your office. This is great insurance for any law firm, as your receptionist might be out for the day, on a break, in the bathroom, or on another call! Answering Legal can help you on a rollover basis by answering only the calls that you miss, which can capture you new business at a fraction of the cost!

The Pricing

Does Answering Legal charge by the minute or by the call?

Answering Legal charges by the minute, so that you only pay for the actual time a call occupies your dedicated telephone number. However, since we do not charge for solicitors, telemarketers, family calls, or anything else not pertaining to your business, we offer some of the most competitive pricing in the industry!

The Setup

What do I need to do in order to get set up?

We only need to ask you a few questions and confirm the settings for your free trial, before we determine what type of call forwarding you would like to utilize. Conditional Call Forwarding short codes are available on almost all mobile phones, and can also be set up by contacting providers for landlines. Straight call forwarding is usually as simple as dialing *72 and the number you would like to forward to, although there are other different short codes depending on your provider. Call us at 917-410-1880 to speak to an expert if this is something you would like to do!

How does the free trial work?

Answering Legal uses conditional call forwarding in order to answer calls that you miss in your office. This means that 24/7, Answering Legal is fielding calls for your practice, since every phone call will ring 3-4 times in your office, and, if unanswered, forwards over to our service! If you would like to call forward with no delay, Answering Legal can easily accommodate as well. Learn more about how our live answering service works on our How It Works page.

Does Answering Legal charge for calls from family or friends?

No. If your family or friends are trying to reach you and instead reach our answering service, our virtual receptionists will let the caller know that they’ve reached your answering service, and will still be happy to send you over a message from your family or friends, free of charge!

What can Answering Legal do for me that my voicemail can not?

Answering Legal can perform all the duties of a legal receptionist, and captures new business exceedingly better than a voicemail system. Since new clients usually have urgent matters, Forbes magazine has shown 80% of callers do not leave a voicemail, and will therefore hang up on your voicemail and look for representation elsewhere. Answering Legal can catch you new business even when you miss the call!

What if I work off of a landline and a cell phone?

Simple! We forward both your landline and your cell phone however you want to the same dedicated telephone number in our system. When calls come through on that line, we know that they came from your phone!

Do I have to sign a long term contract?

No, there are never any contracts to stay with Answering Legal, and you stay because you want to stay. If you would like to cancel, or make a change at any time, there are no barriers to do so.

Will new clients be handled differently than existing clients?

Yes. Generally, our customers like to speak to new clients right away, if they can. Our virtual receptionists usually ask for a name and number, place the caller on a brief hold, and let you know who is calling and ask you if you’d like to take the call. If you can’t take the call, your virtual receptionist will get back on the phone with the caller and perform the legal intake, letting the caller know you will be getting back to him/her promptly. Existing clients usually just have a follow up question that is not urgent, and therefore your virtual receptionist will not try to reach you, but will instead ask the caller’s name and number, as well as a detailed message to send to you instantly.
