Virtual Law Office

What is a virtual law firm?
It is a law firm serving clients through electronic means such as phone, email, fax, regular U.S. mail or commercial delivery, or Skype. With the advent of various phone applications, such as Facetime or Viber, other means of communication may be available upon agreement between the attorney and client.
Why should I hire a virtual law firm?
A virtual law firm will save you unnecessary travel time (including time spent in traffic) when the same goals could be achieved through electronic means. Technology has drastically changed the way companies do business, and continues to revolutionize solutions to the problems companies face every day.
A virtual office is a terrific option for many reasons:
(1) the client does not have to waste time in traffic,
(2) expend gas fuel,
(3) take time off work to meet with the lawyer,
(4) deal with finding a babysitter, and
(5) both the firm and the client can leave a lighter carbon foot print
To ease your fears about working with a lawyer virtually, why not follow him or her on social media, where you can see the lawyer discussing legal issues in real time? How about asking your lawyer if he or she is willing to do a weekly or biweekly phone check-in, even if there are no case updates? I have clients at present who I have never met in person. They are often, but not always, busy corporate representatives who greatly appreciate the value of email, phone, electronic file uploads, Fed Ex, and so on. This use of electronic, or virtual, business transactions needs to gain greater acceptance by the public at large. Lawyers and clients alike will wonder why they hadn’t considered it sooner!
Who should NOT hire a virtual law firm?
To retain my services, it will be necessary that you have access to a computer, an email address and a printer.
How can I pay you?
This law office uses a virtual terminal to process checks and credit cards. You can email, fax or mail to me a voided check or, if a credit card is preferred, you can call my office to provide credit card information.
What if I have to sign something?
Some documents will require an original signature. I email the documents to the client, who in turn prints the document(s), signs and mails them back to me.
What is your address?
The mailing address is Law Office of Amy A. Long, PLLC, 85. S Bragg Street, Alexandria, VA 22312.
