The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
As a virtual paralegal, I am lucky to use an assortment of remote technology every day, depending on attorney preferences and the assignment. I am a big fan of the free stuff like Google Drive, Evernote, Box – and Skype (computer-to-computer calls).
I used Skype this afternoon for an interview assignment. When I called the individual to set up a time for a call that would take at least an hour, the initial response was, “Oh, no, I have a limited data plan and no minutes!”
Uh-oh. That could have definitely put the kibosh on a telephone conversation that ultimately took an hour and half.
Skype came to our rescue, and we happily chatted via our respective computers, with no worries about data plans.
You haven’t set up your Skype account yet? As I found out today, you never know when you might need it to help a client out – and save some bucks.
P.S. Want to chat with your virtual paralegal – just like I am sitting across your desk? We can Skype.
