Starting a virtual paralegal business requires more than the necessary skills and experience. It also involves understanding and addressing various issues such as legal incorporation, business expenses, and setting your fees. In this book, you will learn about the legal structures for a virtual paralegal business, obtaining your Federal Identification Number, naming, and funding your business, and setting your virtual paralegal fees.
It's important to understand that starting a business comes with many unknowns, and only some are meant to be an entrepreneur. Some paralegals may want to avoid owning a business, while others may be ready to leap from employee to entrepreneur. The rewards can be significant, but so are the risks.
This book provides an overview of what is required to work not only for your business but also to work in your business. It contains practical and relevant aspects of creating and managing a successful virtual paralegal business, such as client services, confidentiality, managing assignments, billing, insurance, and taking time off from your business.
