Having support as an attorney is necessary to succeed in solo practice. A virtual office NYC may just be what you need for your practice.
Having a home-based law office is something many want but not many are able to do. Who wouldn’t want the luxury of waking up and not having to take a train that could potentially get stuck?
While this style of work is adequate, there may be a need or desire for a little more and this typically needs to be done in the most economic way possible.
Virtual offices come into play because they provide a resource that has so much room for growth potential that allows an at-home solo to gain their desired potential.
A virtual office NYC gets you an address and more!
Choosing your virtual office should be done with care. You never want to sign a virtual agreement that is more trouble than it is worth!
A huge problem with being a solo is isolated from other attorneys. This can be remedied with a virtual office NYC and grants you the potential for referrals. Don’t pass up the chance to gain hidden potential that can result in:
- Saved time;
- Save money; and
- Significantly reduced malpractice exposure.
Community in action: Virtual office NYC legal collaboration
For example, one of our virtual office clients, an attorney who practices mainly out of her home in Queens, recently needed help interpreting a clause in a commercial real estate contract. She was retained by her client to form multiple corporations and an ancillary real estate issue arose through the course of her representation. She contacted us for advice.
After conversing with her, we were able to connect her with another virtual office NYC client with a Westchester-based practice specializing in real estate. The two of them were urged to schedule a brief phone call to discuss the situation. Soon after the initial suggestion, we received a call from the Queens attorney thanking me for the connection.
Upon the second discussion, she admitted her first approach was not only misguided, but wasted her billable time. All that was needed was a quick phone call. Believe it or not, these interactions are incredibly common in a virtual office NYC community.
In the end, she saved herself and her client money and negotiated a better contract on his behalf, opening the door to doing additional work with him in the future.
Other attorneys’ knowledge and expertise is critical to a legal career. In order to practice effectively, we must be able to have access to as much information to work out legal theories as quickly and efficiently as possible.
A virtual office NYC provider will help you save money over time and having that access is like having the key to virtually limitless success.
Often, it’s the lack of connection with peers that is the biggest drawback to practicing in a home-based office.
Being home-based may be the best option for you and your lifestyle. This may be conducive wants or needs of your personal life, but it is important to keep in mind that being a solo doesn’t mean you don’t need help or shouldn’t interact with other attorneys.
This need for additional knowledge is what makes a legal community provided by a virtual office NYC so appealing and it has the ability to help your practice indefinitely.
