Start Your Own Virtual Paralegal Business

Start Your Own Virtual Paralegal Business

Attorneys are searching for ways to reduce overhead costs.  One way an attorney can reduce overhead costs is to use the services of a freelance paralegal.  Therefore, the demand for contract paralegals is increasing.  As the demand for paralegal services increase, the number of freelance paralegal businesses will rise, naturally.

If you have considered opening your own paralegal business, there are certain details you should consider before opening your door and hanging out a shingle.  As with any small business, a freelance paralegal should begin with a strong foundation for a successful business. The New American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration offers a 5-week Small Business Boot Camp: Start Your Own Virtual Paralegal Business. This is a great program that puts you in the right direction.
