How do I work with a Virtual Paralegal Assistant?
We understand just how vital it is for your paperwork to be done, your office to run smoothly, have all your materials ready for court, and your documents prepared to an extremely high standard. Luckily, our Virtual Paralegal Assistant (VPA) has had years of experience working in a busy legal environment and is ready to help with all your legal administrative needs.
Your Virtual Paralegal Assistant (VPA) works remotely - we never have to step foot in your office. We can help you no matter where you are located, as long as you have an internet connection and email access. We can do any task you require as long as we are provided with clear instructions, given any relevant information and can access the necessary software online (where applicable).
Our business is VIRTUAL, which means all of our work is done remotely and online. We do not work in your office, and are unable to attend to some of your physical errands or meet you for coffee. However, we can arrange to attend meetings with you via Skype, FaceTime or Messenger on a once-off, weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis if required.
With various applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Dropbox, FaceTime and Skype, it won't matter that your VPA does not physically share your office space with you. Tasks will be done on time, exactly how you like them, in a professional and highly efficient manner. Better still - you will only have to pay for the hours your Virtual Assistant actually works, along with any extra expenses, without worrying about staff absences, superannuation, or other costly overheads.
Where do we start?
Either send us an initial enquiry, or fill in our online registration form so we can get some information from you, such as information about you and your business, what tasks and duties you need completed, and for an approximate of how many hours you anticipate these tasks may take (or how much time they currently take you) to complete. We'll then contact you, and establish whether you require a one-off service, a short, mid or long term arrangement, and then submit a proposal for your consideration.
When you are happy with the proposed arrangements and you're ready to proceed, we will get to work!
It really is that simple!
Will my Virtual Paralegal Assistant need training?
Depending on what type of assistance you require will determine if any training is required.
If you require one-off or limited assistance, little or no training is likely to be required. However, if you are seeking to engage our services on a more comprehensive or ongoing basis, training may be necessary to ensure we do things just the way you want them done.
This can be done by providing us with a document containing detailed instructions, or an in-depth telephone or video call, if that is your preference. Training could take as little as an hour, or be an ongoing process which sees the role develop over time.
Whatever method of training you choose, you can rest assured that we are very quick learners and will produce top-quality work, exactly the way you like it, in no time at all.
