Lawyers, don’t send business to your competitors

Peyton Duplechien • 23 Mar 2020 • 2 min read

Coronavirus (COVID-19) may have law firms scrambling trying to move legal teams to working from home, attend court remotely and teleconference as needed. Whatever the case may be, law firm phones lines are busy. Whether you’re talking to clients, keeping up with your team or conferencing with other attorneys, it’s difficult to juggle the call volume.  
Don’t lose out to competition 
For law firms, new leads come in daily – most of which come through the phone. In such a sensitive industry, legal prospects feel more comfortable speaking with someone directly instead of inquiring through email or a webform. 
But if your prospects are being pushed to your voicemail, you might be missing out on leads. People are more likely to call competitor than leave a voicemail and wait for a return call.  
Also, your existing clients may become frustrated if they aren’t able to reach you. There is a chance that, after repeated attempts to contact, your client may move over to your competitors.  
Legal live answering is the solution 
You could try to handle your call volume on your own or delegate it to your team, but the best bet is to outsource your calls to a third party that can ensure every one of your calls is answered.  
With legal live answering, professional operators will answer your calls, perform transfers and send messages directly to you. This way, each lead or client will get the personal touch of speaking to a human every time and knowing that the messages will be delivered to you.
