Scale your law firm using Virtual Assistants, Receptionist Services and Freelance Lawyers

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Friday, October 19, 2018

Co-Sponsored by the Practice Management & Marketing Section.


Weighed down from stress, working into the late hours of the night, or finding yourself in the office on Saturdays? A busy law office can be both a blessing and a curse.

It’s common to feel overwhelmed, burdened by the weight of your work, but at the same time hesitant to hire someone to help. You may think to yourself that you have no choice, but to do everything on your own. The thought of hiring someone is daunting. Not to mention the time to train them and then… what if they leave?
There is a better way!

It is not always necessary to hire someone full time, and in many cases you actually need a small army of part-time specialists until your business has the workload to support full-time staff. By using services or agencies that understand the way law firms work, the nuances of your practice area and the daily challenges you face a virtual employee can often be more efficient than one sitting in your office.

In this session, we will break down the most common virtual assistant, and freelance services available to you. How to use them, and most importantly how to make the relationship work through systems, and accountability.

*The Practice Management & Marketing Section is hosting a live webinar viewing session at MSBA with lunch provided. If you are interested in attending, please register online first AND then email Geen Mui to reserve your lunch. Lunch is included with your registration cost AND for advance in-person notification.

Following the live webinar, a panel discussion will be held from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. This is an in-person discussion.
