Plainfield, NJ (PRWEB) July 6, 2006 -–
Maybe now, the hard -working attorney can get home in time for the school play, and be a global player, too.
Legal Support Professional Aretha Gaskin announced today the launching of The Virtual Legal Assistant, Inc., a business designed to serve all the administrative needs of an interconnected legal practice without the administrative headaches of extra staff, supplies and the cost that comes with them.
“The 21st Century has brought extraordinary flexibility to the workplace,” says Gaskin, “and The Virtual Legal Assistant is how technology can particularly serve the legal community. It’s not just outsourcing; I provide a comprehensive service that enhances the efficiency of a practice while relieving the attorney of administrative clutter.”
As Jeffrey M. Aresty, lawyer and creator of cyberspaceattorney.com points out:
“The essential difference between the digital lawyers of the future, which may turn out to be the only kind of lawyer to thrive in the future, and today’s lawyer, lies only partly in access to technology and in skill in using technology. Rather, the core change in the digital lawyer is an understanding of the value of information in an environment where new tools for processing and communicating information make adding value to information and using information to develop new relationships the central concern of the economic system”.
Gaskin recognized the need for The Virtual Legal Assistant during a 10 -year career as a respected support professional at some of New York City’s elite corporate law firms. As she became proficient in the use of all the rapidly changing electronic legal tools, she noticed an inevitable progression toward the virtual office – the unseen assistant who can clean up the to -do list and is never out to lunch.
“What really sets me apart,” says Gaskin, “is that I’ve seen thousands of attorney corrections, and raced for dozens of FedEx deadlines, and juggled numerous clients for overworked attorneys. I know what they need and The Virtual Legal Assistant can provide it. But I’m also an entrepreneur and, like them, I take success seriously.”
On a monthly retainer basis, The Virtual Legal Assistant handles document production, personal and professional travel arrangements, meeting organization, schedule management, purchase orders, bulk mailings, business correspondence, and more.
