What are the benefits of working with a remote paralegal?

Whether you are a lawyer/firm already established in, returning to, or entering the practice of bankruptcy law, you face the ongoing task of balancing firm administration costs vs. profitability.

You may already have 1 or 2 great paralegals who keep cases moving but might already be working at full capacity. If you want to increase profitability you need to increase clients and cases, but can your team handle the increase? And, if the so-called “bankruptcy tsunami” comes to fruition in 2021, will you be ready or miss the opportunity?

With many years working as a remote, contracted paralegal for bankruptcy attorneys around the United States (see my district experience), I can provide the expansion you need on an as-needed basis. That means already experienced, no training needed, and pay for paralegal services per case keeping admin costs down while watching profitability increase!

Due Diligence Blog

More than 10 years ago, I created a blog with the tagline: “A bankruptcy paralegal speaks about due diligence in consumer bankruptcy cases.” My Due Diligence blog covered a variety of topics for bankruptcy petition preparation and now, in 2020, I am updating all of the content!

It is very important to collect all information from the client and translate it into the case documents. A one-size-fits-all client questionnaire cannot be relied upon to collect everything. The client may misunderstand the context of the question or may simply forget about an account.

The good news is that there are some great tips and good habits for working with the client to make sure all information is captured. Learn more from the Due Diligence blog.
