paralegalDear Attorney:
How often have you wished you had a “right arm” – someone to assist you with your heavy caseload? How often have you sought out ways to increase your productivity without substantially increasing the costs of providing efficient and expedient services to your clients? No doubt, QUITE OFTEN! The additional assistance you have been seeking is available from Moyer Paralegal Services, Ltd.

 

Moyer Paralegal Services, Ltd.  offers attorneys the option of having paralegal services without the necessity of hiring an employee. Freelance or contract paralegals are self-employed paralegals that perform work for attorneys on a contract basis. They are no different than traditional paralegals except that they are not employed by an attorney in a traditional setting such as a law firm, governmental entity or corporation.  Contract paralegals are available on an “as-needed” basis by many supervising attorneys to take on short-term or long-term projects.  Freelance paralegals are educated and qualified to perform paralegal work just the same as traditionally-employed paralegals. They can perform the same services from a remote location (See Virtual Paralegals) or from a temporary office within the law firm. Contract paralegals can work on a specific case, fill in for paralegals that are on vacation or temporary leave or perform specific paralegal services.

Virtual Paralegals are contract paralegals that work online from another location to perform specific paralegal duties for an attorney. The paralegal services offered by virtual paralegals include document preparation and legal research. By using a virtual paralegal, the attorney can bill the client for the paralegal’s time without spending the attorney’s resources hiring and training a new employee. Virtual paralegals offer a variety of paralegal services to attorneys and law firms.
