What Sets Apart a Standout Administrative Professional in 2024?

Throughout the 2020s, attorneys and law firm owners have increasingly started looking for different alternatives when it comes to finding and hiring talent. After the pandemic, physical barriers started to crumble. Today, the competition between law firms to find only the best of the best professionals has become fiercer. Especially, because attorneys are known for the pursuit of high standards in every little aspect of their practice, particularly when it comes to their staff.

For immigration attorneys, it is no different. Due to the frequent high-volume cases, every second becomes extremely valuable. Meticulously working on every case while trying to obtain new clients can swiftly become a burden for the owner. Expecting high standards from other people has always been an issue for law firm owners, despite knowing their matter expertise. Gaining the trust of an attorney is not an easy task, however, it is possible to build a strong bond, created through deliverables and good results.

What Do You Need Help With Your Immigration Firm?

You know there’s great talent all around the world, but how can you be certain you’ll find the one that will truly stand out? First, you need to be true to yourself, you cannot be involved in every little minute thing that happens in your practice. Every hour and every minute you spend doing something else rather than focusing on pressing legal matters, you are losing money.

Dealing with daily, abundant, and constant information flow, such as immigrant application forms, managing supporting documents, and even translating documents (in case your client does not speak English) requires a committed role in your team. You might start the day attacking every single minor task you can think of, only to be let down and frustrated after the day ends and you realize almost nothing was done properly. That’s why delegation is so important, it allows you to concentrate on the essential duties to grow your business.

Here’s a summary of some of the tasks you should be delegating:

  • Drafting memos and agreements
  • Manage legal research
  • Translation and transcriptions
  • Answer calls and email management
  • Immigration forms management
  • Assist with your schedule and book appointments
  • Customer service
  • Craft compelling digital marketing efforts
  • And much, much more

Delegate and Elevate your Immigration Firm

If there’s one consistent fact when it comes to immigration law, it is how it’s constantly evolving. New laws and regulations are being introduced and updated all the time. Staying up to date with all of it can be challenging, even for experts like yourself. This is where delegating to your team will flip the switch and take your practice to the next level.

Visualize how much more efficient your day-to-day would be if you knew every minor, (but important) task is being taken care of. Your team will help you maintain transparency with clients, protect your data, and help you with documentation and communications. Burning out while managing your high-volume caseload involving tons of paperwork will quickly become a thing of the past.

Expected Benefits of Working with a Standout Virtual Professional

As a law firm owner, you might wonder what the main differences between an in-house and an offshore employee are. For starters, if we talk about remote staff, you can expect the same (dare I say, even higher) level of skills as an in-house professional. Currently, every modern legal workplace requires the following necessary qualities as background for someone to be considered a “standout”:

  • Excellent written and communications skills
  • Time zone adaptability (working exclusively during your work hours)
  • English proficiency and bilingual (even trilingual) capabilities
  • Tech savvy (well-versed in technology and legal software)
  • Self-disciplined (work independently and follow through on tasks without being micromanaged)
  • Responsible and committed (trustworthy)
