We’ve showcased a lot of virtual services for law firms here on the Legal TechTalk and this one that you shouldn’t forget, LegalTypist. LegalTypist is like having a virtual administrative assistant to optimize your firm’s workflow capacity. With LegalTypist, you have the ability to email a recorded dictation file to the LegalTypist service and within 24 hours receive a document formatted properly for your particular jurisdiction. You also have the ability to dictate over the phone using the LegalTypist phone dictation service. From reviews that we have seen, the largest benefit is the fact that there is no training involved unlike when a new legal secretary is hired. There are also no contracts as this is a pay as you need service. There are no commitments or software to learn. It’s as simple as we explained it here in this article. The reviews seem to be excellent but many people are wary about virtual typists. I would probably test this service out and see if it works for you. If you already dictate your notes or documents, this may seem like a solution to prolong hiring more staff and free up admin time to work on other matters. Give it a try.
