24/7 Live Answering Service
When we say 24/7 live answering, we really mean it.
Believe us when we tell you, new clients in today’s era and especially with the web, do not leave voicemail. The system was once a technological advancement, but is now an archaism of today’s communication technology. Callers do not want to talk to the automated greeting, especially when they have a problem, and our Answering Service for Attorneys provides Law Firms with 24/7 live answering support, to make sure your new clients never reach that voicemail and hang up. The Harvard Business review states that Vonage Voicemail reported an 8% drop in volume, and retrieved messages dropped 14%, in an article titled “Time to Hang up on Voicemail”. The indifference that callers perceive when they call and hear an automated greeting is an immediate turn off. Answering Legal can provide you with a powerful call center to ensure this never occurs. Our Legal Intake Receptionists will answer as if they are in your office, and follow the protocol you request. Even better, you can try our Legal Answering Service for 10 days, no obligations.

Can my calls be answered only on nights and weekends?
Absolutely! You can forward and unforward your calls to Answering Legal as you please. Have the calls ring in your office during the day, and forward us the calls on the nights and weekends when you leave the office.
What happens to incoming calls when I lose cell service?
If you do not have service, since the call would normally have gone to voicemail, it will come directly to Answering Legal! This is what we mean when we say that the network gets jammed up and you didn’t even know someone had called you, because you never received a notification for a missed call. With Answering Legal, capture the callers when this happens!
