A long time ago, a country lawyer who became quite successful noted that “a lawyer’s time and advice are his stock in trade”. These are intangible skills, requiring no office space. Although this lawyer was part of a traditional law office, he spent most of his time traveling the circuit, with only papers and briefs as his virtual office. His name was Abraham Lincoln.
In the 21st century, professions such as law have been evolving rapidly with the advent of new
communications technology. An attorney, starting out or established, may have little reason to incur the expense and constraints of physical office space. Today, clients often prefer in-person meetings to take place at their own office or home anyway. A virtual office is the perfect solution to grow a modern and successful practice. Overhead is low, and flexibility is maximized.
Working from home, a solo practitioner can promote a consequential image with a virtual office at a prestigious corporate address that includes local telephone and fax. And with today’s business being conducted largely online, the state-of-the-art communications tools that are the hallmark of virtual offices are all that’s needed to operate a growing law practice.
Professionalism is enhanced by trained, live receptionists answering calls personally during business hours, and a quality virtual office will offer fax converting to pdf files, making transfer of documents a breeze and voicemail converting to audio files so information is always accurate and at hand.
