For solo and small firm lawyers there is a brief moment of excitement that comes with every call they recieve. As the phone starts to ring, hope begins to build that someone is reaching out to them with a new case opportunity. Sometimes attorneys do get the payoff they’re looking for, as the call does come from a new prospect in need of an attorney. But, more times than not, the calls lawyers receive are regarding issues that either have nothing to do with their firm or are far from urgent.
If you’re managing your own firm, and are doing so without full-time receptionist help, you know from experience how annoying it is to have to answer calls non-stop throughout the day. Sure you could let some calls go to voicemail, but you never know when a new prospect will be calling in for the first time, and giving new leads a live person to speak with is a necessity in today’s consumer world.
If you’re tired of having to be your own receptionist 24/7, you need to start working smarter. And the smartest thing you can do for your legal life in 2020 is invest in an answering service for lawyers!
Meet Answering Legal
We’re a 24/7 live answering service that exclusively serves the legal industry. Over the years we’ve helped thousands of attorneys capture more of their new leads, while taking the burden of having to answer every call off their shoulders. Our receptionist team is always available to pick up the phone, and can talk to any callers a lawyer doesn’t have time to talk to or doesn’t feel like talking to themselves. Just imagine being able to comfortably ignore an incoming call, knowing that a highly trained legal receptionist will be ready to take the call on your behalf.
One of the best parts about using our answering service for lawyers, is that you’ll still always be given the opportunity to speak with new prospects in real time. Anytime one of our receptionists answers a call on your behalf and identifies the caller as a potential new lead, they can contact you and ask if you’d like to have the call transferred over to your line. If you are free, you’ll be given some brief background information about the caller, and then will immediately get to speak with them and start winning over their business.
In cases where you are unable to hop on a call, you’ll never have to stress. All of our receptionist team members are fully trained on performing the legal intake process, and can collect all of the personal and case information you need to move forward with their case. You’ll receive the new lead’s info shortly after the call concludes in the form of a text and/or email message. Essentially, we’ll be making sure you always know when financial opportunity is knocking at the door at your firm, while simultaneously keeping away all of the bothersome calls that currently clutter up your day. Oh by the way, did we mention…
We’ll Keep Away Telemarketers and Robocalls
There are few things more frustrating on the planet than answering a call during or after a busy work day, and finding out that the call is basically a verbal spam message. If you answer enough of these types of calls in a given day, it can be enough to make you want to tear your hair out. We know lawyers managing growing firms definitely don’t need any extra stress added on to their day, so why not let the Answering Legal receptionist team serve as phone answering buffer between you and unwanted sales calls.
The receptionists at our answering service for lawyers are well trained in filtering calls, and making sure telemarketers and robocalls never get to attorney’s phone line. Any callers you receive that clearly are of the unwanted variety will be politely sent packing by our service. Whenever you receive a call from our service you’ll know it’s for an important reason.
It’s also important to note that we never charge for any calls we answer that are unrelated to your business. Some answering services like to rack up monthly minute totals by including irrelevant sales calls in the final bill, but we at Answering Legal don’t play those games. Our service will even answer calls from a lawyer’s family and friends at no extra cost.
Wait, Can I Even Afford This Service?
Of course! Many of Answering Legal customers are either small or solo law firms, and we have pricing plans to accommodate just about any budget. The pricing plan we create for you will be based on the call volume your firm receives. We’ll make sure you don’t end up paying for large minute portions your office isn’t using, or don’t get placed in a minutes package that you’ll quickly go over.
You can fill out our custom quote form to get an estimate of your monthly flat rate with Answering Legal.
