How To Locate and Work with A Virtual Legal Assistant

How To Locate and Hire A Legal Virtual Assistant


You know you need help, but:


(a) you work from a home based office and prefer not to share your living space with a "co-worker"

(b)  the space allotted to your firm is at capacity or you just can't seem to find a "good" legal secretary

(c) your workflow doesn't justify the cost of a full time assistant

(d) you've always done everything yourself and have no idea where to start or what an assistant can do


Did you know there is a way to maximize your firm's overall productivity; increase morale and literally get more done with less - less time, less resources and less stress? 



By locating and hiring a virtual legal assistant.  Virtual legal assistants are contract workers who help lawyers and law firm administrators with common office tasks remotely.


The problem?  Anyone with an internet connection and dream can call themselves a "virtual assistant" and popluar books have people believing VA's are a dime a dozen and competent individuals can easily be found for pennies on the dollar.

In this 60-minute LIVE teleclass, join Master VA Andrea Cannavina (a/k/a LegalTypist) and Alberta's own popular @HaloSecretarial, Laurie Mapp, as they present real-life examples, practical considerations and the pros and cons of locating, working with and managing the virtual legal assistant relationship.

This session will specifically cover:

  • What a virtual legal assistant is and. more importantly, is not
  • Which tasks, duties and processes are most easily outsourced
  • In house, in country or off shore- does it really matter
  • Confidentiality and security
  • The right tech for the job
