Overwhelmed by Legal Admin? When to Outsource to a Virtual Assistant

As a solicitor or expert witness, your primary focus should be on delivering exceptional legal advice or crafting insightful expert reports. However, those pesky administrative tasks can quickly consume your valuable time, leaving you feeling stressed, overworked, and potentially at risk of missing important details.

If this resonates with you, a legal virtual assistant (VA) might be the perfect solution.

When's the right time to outsource?

Here are some tell-tale signs it's time to consider a virtual assistant:
 

  • Paperwork pile-up: Are you buried under a mountain of transcripts, reports, correspondence, and court documents? A VA can take charge of document
    management, ensuring everything is filed, formatted, and free from errors.
     
  • Missed deadlines: Struggling to meet crucial deadlines can be detrimental to your
    reputation. A VA can handle your diary management and reminders, keeping you on
    schedule.
     
  • Legal aid frustrations: If the complexities of legal aid claims are eating up your
    time, a VA specialising in this area can be invaluable.
     
  • Feeling at capacity: When you're constantly firefighting administrative tasks, it's
    time to get a helping hand. A VA gives you precious time back to concentrate on your
    core work.
