We understand that solo practitioners and small firm attorneys often have to work under incredibly tight budgets. We also know they’re in a position where they can’t afford to miss out on a single new client opportunity, and therefore can’t afford to have a single call mishandled. So if a lawyer simply can’t afford to pay a full-time legal receptionist salary, how do they ensure their demanding call handling needs are met?
We know you came to this article looking for alternative options, and boy do we have a good one for you. What if we told you that there was a receptionist option for your firm that didn’t involve you doing any employee interviewing or training, provided you with top notch 24/7 legal receptionist coverage, and came at a fraction of the cost of a normal in-office receptionist.
Meet Your New Legal Receptionist… Or Should We Say Legal Receptionists
Answering Legal is a phone answering service that exclusively serves legal professionals. Our team of receptionists can not only fill the role of a small firm’s office receptionist, but already come highly trained and ready to help you capture new clients. Even if money was no issue (and we’ll get to the highly affordable cost of our service in a moment), finding someone to answer your phones and training them to be your dream receptionist can be quite the hassle, and take up a lot of your valuable time. When using our service, you’ll have an already hired and trained team of legal receptionists at your disposal.
All Answering Legal Receptionists are trained in:
- Handling legal phone calls
- Performing new client intakes
- Message taking
- Appointment scheduling
- Call forwarding
You can trust any member of our receptionist team to properly handle even the most sensitive of calls that come into your law office. We even have receptionists able to answer calls in both English and Spanish, meaning your firm will have a high chance at impressing virtually any person that calls. Our receptionists’ ability to take your clients through the all-important legal intake process will also go a long way into ensuring new leads don’t vanish during times in which you’re unavailable to get on the phone. Our service will even work with you to personalize the legal intake questions we ask towards your firm.
Our 24/7 Phone Coverage Is Unmatched
Not only does Answering Legal provide your growing practice with top notch legal receptionist coverage, we’ll make sure that every single call that comes into your firm is answered by a live person. This is true for overnights, weekends, and even holidays. An in-office receptionist won’t be able to provide you with anywhere close to that level of coverage.
Why does providing a live voice to your calls matter so much? To be frank, consumers today are a pretty impatient bunch. They want immediate answers to their problems, especially when those problems are pressing legal matters. If a client calls your firm and is sent to a voicemail machine, they will in most cases immediately move on to calling another firm for legal help. So unless you feel like answering calls non-stop during and outside of normal office hours, you better get a legal answering service.
Now, let’s get back to why you probably clicked on this blog post in the first place.
What’s The Price Difference?
Employing a full-time receptionist for your firm is likely to cost you thousands of dollars a month. Part of what makes Answering Legal a great alternative is that we have pricing packages for firms of every budget size. Check out our monthly rates below.
As you can tell from reading the information above, our plans for solo and medium firm are going to end up being significantly cheaper than the cost of a full-time legal receptionist salary. And, if we’re providing you with already trained legal receptionists, unrivaled 24/7 coverage, and a cheaper price tag, why wouldn’t you at least give Answering Legal a try? Need even more reason to do so?
