Virtual Paralegal Support: First


When you need a paralegal to take on some of your law firm’s administrative and case preparation work, you may be holding off because you don’t need the help all the time—only during busy seasons. You need a solution that gives you access to a paralegal, but only when you need an extra hand.


Fortunately, NextChapter can help. Founder Janine Sickmeyer is a former virtual paralegal working for attorneys all over the U.S., and she developed an efficient way to prepare documents electronically to work with both debtors and attorneys.


NextChapter is the first bankruptcy software to offer paralegal assistance through Paralegal as a Service. This means you can hire a virtual paralegal on a per-case, hourly basis to help you prepare and file your cases, and fast.


Our paralegals are all based in the U.S., can speak three different languages, and they're able to take on any bankruptcy filing in any state or district.


Here are the main three benefits of working with a NextChapter virtual paralegal.


Save time

With our virtual paralegal service, someone else is preparing the petition for you. You don’t have to be bogged down by paperwork when you’re trying to manage many other aspects of the legal process for your clients.


Using the Paralegal as a Service tool from NextChapter frees up a lot of time and energy so you can focus on more important aspects of your law firm, like retaining clients, generating leads, improving customer satisfaction, and growing your practice, among others.


And, delegating work will help you avoid overworking and lots of stress.


Increase revenue

When you have more time to focus on your practice with the extra hand that a virtual paralegal provides, you can take on more cases, and maybe even expand your practice to include areas like immigration law.


Your practice can grow when you get the help you need when you need it. You’ll be able to get more clients and thus bring in more revenue.


Decrease expenses

If you have to pay an in-house paralegal for their services, you’re taking on an unnecessary cost, plain and simple. With NextChapter’s virtual paralegals, you only have to use us when you need us, not during slow periods or lulls when you just don’t have a big workload to pass off.


Hire a paralegal only during busy months, and you don’t have to worry about an hourly rate—you only pay per case. This can save you a ton on expenses, setting you up for future success and growth.


The Paralegal as a Service offering from NextChapter is the first of its kind in the industry. Contact NextChapter to learn more about all the benefits of engaging a virtual paralegal can offer you and your law firm.
