Running a private law firm is not for the faint of heart — from payroll and accounting to social media management and case management, there’s a lot that needs to be done! But, the good news is, you don’t have to do it alone. In this post, we’ll go over three legal functions to outsource that will save you time and money so you can direct your focus on your clients and winning their cases.

3 Functions You Should Consider Outsourcing

Function 1: Live Reception

Answering phones, scheduling appointments and taking client questions is a full-time job! When you count on Abby, the leading answering service for attorneys, you can keep your focus on your legal expertise and clients while we handle all reception-related tasks. What’s more, our service is far more cost-effective than hiring full-time, in-house reception staff. We also come with around-the-clock, 24/7 availability — that you don’t have to worry about paying overtime for! No more missed calls or a mounting pile of voicemails and emails to get back to. We handle the calls as they come in.

Function 2: Accounting

Are you fed up with the giant headache that trying to manage your firm’s accounting is bringing you month after month? Take control of your financing by allowing specialists to manage your costs, keeping you on budget and growing your firm. The best part is, when you outsource your accounting functions, you only pay for the actual accounting, nothing else — saving you productivity and payroll costs.

Function 3: Social Media Management

To grow your firm, you need to be on social media and you need to constantly be tweaking your SEO and social media strategies. Again, this is a full-time job and one that you frankly can’t afford to keep pushing to the end of your to-do list. This is where outsourced social media managers come in. These social media experts help your firm reach and connect with a broader audience of potential and current clients. A strong presence on social media also helps increase your firm’s brand recognition.

Social media is fun and makes your firm more approachable rather than looking like every other “stuffy” law office out there.

Informative and fun consistent social media posts also work to keep your firm fresh on the minds of your clients and the general public. Meaning if they ever find themselves in a legal jam, they’re much more likely to remember that infographic or cute animal photo you posted on Twitter rather than the guys down the street who aren’t active on social media and who are still relying on old-school TV and phone book advertising.
