Meet Your New Virtual Legal Secretary
One of the most difficult parts of being a lawyer who owns their own practice is getting remedial tasks accomplished while also serving clients by practicing law. Showing up to court, drafting documents, corresponding with opposing counsel, and traveling to meetings is a full time job in and of itself – now add on top: answering phone calls, performing legal intakes, scheduling consultations and appointments, and tracking contacts; that makes for quite a busy day.
What Answering Legal can help you with is the secretarial duties of managing a law firm. That means you no longer have to be the one-lawyer-show. Answering Legal provides you with 24 hour live receptionists who can take messages, perform legal intakes, schedule consultations, and help you keep track of who needs your attention, so that you can silence your cell phone and have peace of mind while you’re out actually being an attorney!
We’ve specialized in answering for law firms for over 6 years, and we have over 100 trained legal intake receptionists in our employ. Firms specializing in all types of law love Answering Legal, especially those practicing: Criminal Defense, Personal Injury, Bankruptcy, Family, Corporate, Estate Planning, Immigration, Social Security Disability, Workman’s Compensation, and many more.
A Real Extension of Your Practice
Answering Legal can change on the fly with your needs. If you’re going out of town on vacation and want us to let all your clients know that you’ll be responding to emails but will be unavailable by phone until the day you return, we’ll let all callers know exactly that. If you have a lengthy trial coming up, let us know! We’ll keep on performing new client intakes, and will let your callers know that you’ll get back to them when you get out of court. Anything and everything that you can possibly think of that you’d like us to tell your callers when we answer the phone, we can absolutely do.
Don’t Wait for Superior Service
We won’t tell you over the phone that we’ll get around to making your changes soon, we make sure that your requests are handled immediately. As long as your issue is not directly related to your phone company, we solve problems over the phone before you hang up – it’s that easy.

I have no hesitation in recommending Answering Legal.
“Last year, I called an attorney in the Detroit area, and was forwarded to her Answering Service. I was so impressed with the professionalism that I asked about the service, then switched from the service I had been using for the last 6 years. I have been very pleased with Answering Legal.”
Much better than the other 2 services that I previously used.
“Prior to being contacted by Answering Legal for a free trial, I had used 2 different answering services for my solo criminal defense firm. I was pretty hesitant at first because I would be switching from my current service. However, after hearing them out and reading their reviews from other attorneys, I decided to give Answering Legal a try. I’ve been with Answering Legal now for about 2 years and they are much better than the other 2 services that I previously used.”
Answering Legal goes beyond what other answering services will offer.
“Very good legal answering service. Goes beyond what other answering services will offer by collecting client and case information and contacting you immediately when there is a potential new client that is calling.”
You cannot beat Answering Legal’s services.
“The high level of knowledge and intelligence of those who answer my phones when my office cannot along with the tools used to reach out quickly to inform me have become an integral part of my continued success.”
I have been using Answering Legal’s services with my firm for years.
“I am a solo practitioner who needs someone answering my phones 24/7/365 to have a competitive edge over other attorneys as oftentimes prospective clients will hire an attorney quickly after they begin their search. I have been using Answering Legal’s services with my firm for years and they have been excellent. Their staff is friendly, professional and diligent.”
The price is right, and they are a tremendous value to my law office.
“They answer my phone 24/7 365, even on Christmas! They have always been polite and professional to my clients and keep the telemarketers at bay. The price is right, and they are a tremendous value to my law office.”
