Some months ago (in 2006 actually) we had a few articles come out in Lawyer’s Weekly in Australia and it was good to see the recognition by the legal industry of how Virtual Assistants can assist them in their daily needs.
A new article has just been published by Law Practice Today titled The Virtual Assistant: Every Lawyer Needs One! and I thought I’d share the article with you – it is a good one and gives great information about the types of things that VAs can do to service their clients in the legal industry.
It was closing day: there were last minute changes to the Asset Purchase Agreement before meeting with the vendor’s team. My secretary was sick. What I thought were simple additions and changes to the Agreement were not so. The text jumped around inexplicably with every revision, and in my frantic attempts to justify the text the fonts switched repeatedly, the numbering changed its sequencing and the alignment shifted back – all seemingly with a mind of its own. I was desperate.
So began my relationship with my VA (Virtual Assistant): a card in my Roladex that I was sure I’d never need. She gave me an instant solution. I noted the changes on the agreement, faxed them, and emailed the troublesome text. As instantaneously as if my secretary had been there, the amended agreement was sitting in my Inbox ready to print in quadruplicate. It was that easy.

The article mentions searching on Google for VA networks, but I thought I’d save you, the reader, some time and list a few of them here.Â KMT
