Andrea is a Virtual Assistant dedicated to helping those in legal better understand, integrate and use web based technologies in order to increase efficiencies and productivity, while at the same time reducing the cost and stress to actually get the work done. She is the CEO/founder of LegalTypist, Inc. and up until recently, limited her services to only US based attorneys.
LegalTypist started in 2001 as Andrea and 1 NY based attorney she assisted virtually (who remains a client to this day); and quickly grew to Andrea taking care of 7 US based law firms (with two kids under 5, while undergoing a hand's on restoration of every surface of a 1924 Colonial).
Andrea began researching and selectively put in place the tech necessary for her clients to upgrade to a digital workflow that was accessible any telephone (no app required) or from any internet connection - with no capital outlay for equipment.
At the same time, she also put in place the people necessary to process the day to day work of multiple attorney firms; and added Tracy as Operations Manager to keep it all running.
Andrea now mostly handles the new client generation functions of LegalTypist - recently speaking at ABA TechShow - participating on the web as @LegalTypist and takes care of all the webby stuff - social media - blog - websites and such; while Tracy and the Digital Assistants of LegalTypist process the day to day work of clients - which includes all manner of legal and business documents - as well as performing the data entry and manipulation of the web based technologies Andrea has added to the workflow.
Andrea loves each and every one of her solos - but her favorite upgrade is for larger firms who use LegalTypist to upgrade from tape based dictation to a secure, scalable digital workflow immediately accessible from any telephone or internet connection that is as easy for the staff to use, as it is on the firm to implement.
This brings us to Andrea's next website ...
Launched February 4, 2005, Law Firm Solutions highlighted many of the technologies Andrea tested and found:
(a) were secure;
(b) did that which they said they did;
(c) technologically understood the requirements regarding privacy of attorney/client work product; and
(d) were end user friendly.
These techs included Onebox, Mozy and LegalTypist.
Later additions included SendThisFile, Host Gator, Clio, NetDocuments, Amicus Creative and Law Charge.
Both the website for Law Firm Solutions and Web-O-Dex of techs recommended by Andrea are currently being updated and will be released shortly!
After putting together two sites to specifically help those in legal gain the knowledge, equipment and practical information they needed to put processes such as digital dictation, outsourcing, unified messaging and secure off site back up in place; and putting together the people necessary to process the day-to-day work of the growing client base of LegalTypist, Andrea turned her attention to the developed a site to help all professionals looking for help with all things webby - hopefully before they picked the wrong tech or paid some ridiculous fee for "SEO" or other web related services!
