Virtual Paralegal Services (“VPS”) provides senior-level on-demand paralegal assistance to solo practitioners and small law firms. Whether you need quick research, general legal assistance, transactional assistance or the handling of a particular project, VPS can fortify your legal team as the paralegal you rely on daily, when staffing is strained or due to overflow workload. For law firms or in-house legal departments with paralegals on staff, VPS can provide supplemental paralegal assistance for projects that do not justify hiring additional staff (i.e., reviewing contract or lease files, organizing e-files, organizing company records books, managing subsidiary reorganizations, assisting in due diligence, post-merger clean-up, etc.).
VPS differs from traditional temporary or contract help because VPS establishes relationships with every client. Denise Annunciata, the paralegal coordinator and founder of VPS, is always available to assess your needs and determine the paralegal best-suited for your project. The paralegal assigned to your project may be Denise or another senior-level aralegal with the experience and skills commensurate with your specialty area, needs and expectations. Since all VPS paralegals are senior-level paralegals with substantial paralegal experience and training in large law firms, VPS paralegals hit the ground running. You can be confident that every project will be handled professionally and expeditiously.
VPS partners with its clients. We’re there when you need us. We can quote a project before commencement so that costs are fixed. When you become a VPS client, we set up a file with your preferences, model forms and instructions to assure that our work product integrates with your practice and firm brand. We can be invisible to your client or we can work with your client, depending upon your preference.
