SYNOPSIS: Although paralegals cannot practice law, owning a law firm requires only business acumen and skills of small business ownership. Paralegals can own law firms, and Amata can help!

Paralegals– Stop Working for Lawyers. Make Them Wo

BY: Ron Bockstahler, Amata Law Office Suites

Being a paralegal has its perks. You are an integral piece of a multi-billion-dollar industry and support lawyers in their fields. After all, some of them are noble and pursue justice and fairness in upholding the law. That’s got to count for something, right?

 

Unfortunately, the lawyers make the lion’s share of the earnings and only a relatively tiny trickle down is allocated for the support staff’s salary. Despite your essential contribution, you’ve essentially flipped a nickel and given an insincere, “Good job there, kid! Here’s lookin’ at ya!”

 

Take the Reins– Open a Firm!

 

While it’s true that paralegals lack the necessary credentials to practice law legally, there’s no rule against them opening their own business, and a law firm, at its core, is just that.

 

Paralegals are often some of the best qualified to open a law firm. On a logistical level, they understand the industry just as well and sometimes better than the actual lawyers. All they lack are the educational prerequisites and bar recognition which is, of course, quite important for practicing law, but not imperative to manage lawyers or operations of a firm.

 

Rather, business administration, business finance, and other business-focused classes become more essential when your primary function is to run a business.

 

Amata Can Help!

 

Depending on how long you’ve been a paralegal, you may already have ample insight into the legal logistics needed to get in place before slapping your name on a business card and accepting candidates for interviews at your new firm.

 

Those prerequisites must be met and those boxes checked but Amata has you covered once they are.

 

Amata offers physical, virtual, or hybrid spaces to host your newly opened organization. What’s more is that they’ve spared no expense on their locations, so the appearance will send the right message to future potential employees and their clients.

 

Amata simplifies everything, making it all too easy to get settled in one of their locations and immediately assume the appearance of a prestigious organization.

 

Your clients and staff don’t need to know you literally just set up shop. The beautiful location will give them confidence that all is well and that they are part of or working with a reputable and professional firm.

 

Hire Your Staff, or Don’t

 

Another way Amata simplifies the opening process is their support staff, which is also available to rent. Instead of allocating funds for permanent hires that will be your employees specifically, Amata provides a number of legal professionals including receptionists and paralegals that will be available at your convenience to support your office operation and your lawyers.

 

Save time, money, and hassle on the interviewing process and take advantage of Amata’s more than capable staff now.

 

Your future awaits. Contact Amata now and take the reins!
