Running your own law firm means you have two jobs: attorney and entrepreneur. Unfortunately, if you’re a solo or running a smaller firm, that second job can get in the way of the first. It can be tough to get all your legal work done when your administrative work needs constant attention.
Sending out invoices to make sure you get paid, answering the phone; there are countless administrative tasks that can eat up your time. It can sometimes make it tough to get enough billable hours in each week.
If you’re looking to increase your billable hours per week, Answering Legal can help. With our team of virtual receptionists available to answer your calls 24/7, you’ll find yourself with plenty more free time. Below, we’ll go into more detail about how a virtual receptionist for lawyers will help you boost your billable hours.
We’ll Take Phone Calls Off Your Hands
Unless you have a receptionist, phone calls probably occupy a surprising amount of your time. Even just a handful of five minute calls a day adds up to hours a week. At the end of the year, that adds up to a shocking amount of lost productivity.
With a virtual receptionist for lawyers handling all your calls, you’ll reclaim a lot of productive hours in your workday. Our team will use a script of your design to answer your phone, so your clients will always have an experience unique to your firm. They’ll never encounter a bored or impersonal receptionist, and you’ll only hear about the calls that are worth your time.
You’ll also save time on your follow up. Our virtual receptionists take detailed messages that are sent immediately to your text or email inbox. With all your new leads’ information in one place, you’ll never have to spend time searching for notes or contact information. Between delegating your phone answering and organizing your follow up, our virtual receptionists will open plenty of time in your workday to bill some hours to your clients.
Our Virtual Receptionists Are Lead Capturing Experts
You might worry that a virtual receptionist for lawyers won’t be able to secure leads the same way you can. That may be true of other answering services, but it’s not true of Answering Legal. There’s still no substitute for speaking with clients yourself, of course. But even still, you’ll have a constant influx of new clients and therefore plenty of work to do.
Our virtual receptionists undergo months of training in legal intake. They learn all about the types of questions different legal disciplines might need answered. In addition, you get to design the script they use for legal intake, so you’ll always have the information you need.
When new leads explain their legal issue to a live person who is trained to listen attentively, they’ll feel like they’ve already begun the process of hiring your firm. If that’s not enough, our virtual receptionists can also schedule appointments directly into your calendar. But don’t worry; you’ll still have full control over your schedule. We’ll only ever schedule appointments in slots you’ve pre-designated. A new lead with an appointment to talk to you directly is much less likely to call another lawyer.
