Why Choose a Virtual Law Firm?

June 8, 2017

What is a virtual law firm?

With the increasing number of companies closing their doors in favour of online business, and even more companies starting up as completely virtually-based firms, paper-based offices might soon become a thing of the past. Law firms are no different. A virtual law firm is the same as any other law firm, but without a brick and mortar office. The only difference as a client is that you do not need to go to an office to use a virtual law firm.

Virtual law firms are uniquely positioned to work more efficiently and provide a great number of benefits to their clients. With a virtual law firm, you can get your legal advice from anywhere you happen to be. As a matter of fact, you do not even have to leave your home to get a highly qualified legal opinion or service.

Sounds too good to be true? Let’s explore why people are turning to virtual law firms for both their personal and business needs.

Convenience

For some of our virtual legal services, all you need to do is fill out a questionnaire and the lawyer will take care of the rest. For more complex services, a one-on-one phone consultation is required. In both cases, you can complete these tasks from the comfort of your home or while you’re on the go, at a time that works for you.

When you choose virtual law firm, there’s no need to scramble for a babysitter or give awkward explanations to your boss as to why you need to leave in the middle of the day to meet your lawyer. You can simply schedule a call or complete your questionnaire during a time that you’re free.   

Cost Savings

Virtual law firms are formed and regulated in the same way as every other law firm. However, because most activities are carried out online, virtual law firms have fewer fixed costs. These savings can be passed on to our clients. Plus using a virtual law firm saves you the cost of fuel and parking.

Time Savings

In a day and age where time seems to be measured in money, virtual law firms give clients a clear advantage. Coming together for a meeting takes no more than agreeing to a certain time. There is no commute time, and an ambitious client can even get some housecleaning done while talking on the phone (just make sure you don’t get distracted)!

Sound Legal Advice

Just because you don’t meet your virtual lawyer in person doesn’t make their services any less valuable. In fact, virtual law firms are often sought out by clients who want top-quality legal services. Virtual law firms are subject to all the same regulations as other law firms, so you can trust that the advice you receive is qualified.

Many people are already using a virtual law firm and are embracing this mobile way of getting their legal business processed – both for their personal and for their company’s needs. They understand that with virtual law firms, they get a better price/performance ratio, and they save time without compromising the quality of the legal advice they receive. With all these benefits, it just makes sense to use a virtual law firm.
