Virtual Legal Assistant Philippines

Are you overwhelmed with the amount of work coming into your practice? Maybe you want to grow and expand your firm? One solution is to hire a virtual legal assistant who can cover all the non-billable hours and leave the paralegals and lawyers to focus on servicing your clients.

A virtual assistant for law firms can perform all the routine administrative work, manage client communications (phone calls, emails, live chats and so on) coordinate meetings and appointments and provide a more client-orientated approach to your practice.
