For many lawyers, a virtual office New York location may be the best option to increase your currently hourly rate while maintaining a relative small economic foot print.

New Jersey and New York are inextricably tied together. Our states even are tenants-in-common with respect to Ellis Island. Due to our extremely close geographic proximity, your New Jersey based practice most likely bleeds over into Manhattan.

For less than the cost of a monthly PATH card, you can establish your foothold into the lucrative Manhattan legal market with a virtual office New York presence.

What is a Virtual Office New York?

A Virtual office is a rental arrangement where attorneys can pay a low monthly fee (typically starting at under $100 a month) to rent the use of a premium commercial address and have access to office space and conference rooms on as as-needed basis.

Lawyers, like you, choose to maintain a virtual office identity in New York City because of the prestige it garners among existing clients and new clients alike. When you add a second address to your business card, especially a prestigious downtown Manhattan address, it creates a perception to client’s that your firm is extremely successful.
