The sun is shining, the weather’s heating up, and the kids are wrapping up their school year. That’s right: summer’s approaching, and with it a great opportunity to take a few days off — maybe even a few weeks!
But no matter how much time you take off, most attorneys will always have that little voice in their head wondering how their firm is doing without them. Larger firms have other lawyers to fall back on, but sole practitioners or attorneys who are the backbones of their firm may not be able to vacation worry-free.
Luckily, Answering Legal has exactly what you need to make sure you enjoy your vacation: a stellar team of virtual receptionists for attorneys. By answering all your calls, a virtual receptionist will ensure your firm runs smoothly in your absence. Here’s how a virtual receptionist will help you make the most of your vacation time this summer.
Stay Up-To-Date With Quality Message Taking
Nowadays, wherever you’re vacationing, chances are high that your hotel will have wifi. For some, that means resisting the daily urge to check in on your firm. But for those who can’t leave their office unsupervised for too long, our message taking service will ensure you can always know what’s going on back at the office.
If you’d like to check in on your firm from the beach, lake, or even from another country, our virtual receptionists will take detailed notes on every call. The client’s contact information and their reason for calling will be recorded, as well as a summary of the call. Those notes will be sent to your text or email inbox (or both), ready for you to check in when you have a few minutes before the family heads to dinner, for example.
Those messages are sent as soon as the call concludes, so you’ll always be up-to-date. If a client or colleague calls with an urgent message, you’ll see it as soon as the call concludes and can follow up if necessary. You’ll never be waiting on our receptionists to send you a message at their convenience.
Leave Your New Leads In Capable Hands
Of course, the point of a vacation is to take time off work. You want to be able to relax by the beach, or sleep in on a Tuesday morning. If you’re looking for an answering service that can guarantee that you’ll be able to enjoy your time off without thinking about work, Answering Legal is the tool you need.
Our virtual receptionists for attorneys are experts at lead-capturing. They spend weeks training to answer only for lawyers, which means they’re specialists. They understand the quality customer service that makes new leads stick with your firm, and are always ready to provide it. When new leads call in, a friendly and professional live receptionist will let them know you’re on vacation but will get back to them as soon as possible.
You might think your voicemail offers similar benefits. After all, your new leads are going to be hearing that you’re unavailable; what difference does it make if they hear it from a machine? Besides the fact that your clients hate voicemail, your virtual receptionist can perform a legal intake. All the information gathered will be sent to you as described above. Once your new leads have described their legal issue to your receptionist, they’ll be less likely to call your competition before you get back to work.
If you decide to follow up on a new lead while reviewing your messages in your hotel room, you’ll have everything you need in the palm of your hand. Think of how grateful those leads will be, knowing you’ve interrupted your vacation to hear them out on their legal issues.
Make The Most Of Your Time Off With Answering Legal
Whether you’re traveling with the spouse and kids or just taking some alone time to relax, Answering Legal has you covered. With our virtual receptionists for attorneys handling your calls, you’ll be able to kick back and relax, confident your firm is in good hands.
When you get back to the office, Answering Legal can keep making your life easier. Our receptionists are bilingual, so you can expand your client base to your local Spanish-speaking market. They’re also available 24/7, so you’ll get the same benefits when relaxing on the couch as you would relaxing on the beach. And finally, our overflow call handling will make sure you never miss a call, even if you’d like to have the opportunity to handle them yourself first.
