We’re excited to share with you our newest episode of Candid Convos; where we discuss virtual staffing in the new remote economy with a business owner, or lawyer, who utilizes virtual staff. This time, our featured guest is Ronald Rohde. Ronald is a commercial real estate attorney and founder of Ronald Rohde Law in Dallas, Texas. He focuses on all aspects of investment real estate. He advises clients on LLC formation, raising capital, loan document review, commercial leases, and more.
In this episode, Ronald and Joe, the host, discuss the benefits of a virtual administrative assistant. They begin by discussing the reason behind building a law firm with flexible work arrangements. As a person who enjoys traveling, Ronald built many remote and cloud base systems at his law firm. This allows him to manage his law firm from anywhere in the country. Naturally, he hired a virtual administrative assistant from Get Staffed Up. A VA who handles the communication with new clients and other procedures.
Finding the Right Person
Joe asks Ronald his standards when hiring a new staff member, to which he responded – “I find it more important to have the right person in a different location than to have the wrong person in the office”. Furthermore, they discuss how important it is to create a healthy work environment, one that employees are excited to work at, and clients are happy to work with. In this case, Florencia, Ronald’s virtual assistant, partakes in the weekly meetings and law firm’s pictures. They have strong company values and work together towards a common goal.
Getting new clients and marketing are some of the challenges that Ronald faces as an attorney and business owner. He shares with Joe that in order to focus on new clients, he sets aside time. During this time he doesn’t check or send emails but rather focuses on his client’s cases. All other administrative tasks are delegated to his VA.
