Whether you’re experiencing an increase in closings, or you simply wish to relieve some of your present workload, a virtual paralegal or legal secretary can assist you and provide an affordable alternative to hiring on-site legal support.
Equivity provides US-based virtual real estate paralegals and legal secretaries with years of experience assisting attorneys with both residential and commercial real estate transactions. Our dedicated paralegals can help you with a variety of real estate matters including preparing documents for closings, preparing leases and purchase agreements, and performing real estate title searches for upcoming transactions.
All virtual paralegals are Equivity employees, not independent contractors, providing you with the accountability, privacy and security assurances that come with a dedicated employee, while avoiding payroll, workers’ compensation, benefits and recruiting costs.
Our service is also designed to be adaptable to the needs of your practice. We offer a wide range of scalable plans so that you can increase or decrease your hours as the need arises. If you’re looking for a retainer-style arrangement, select our annual plan, which allows you to use hours over the course of 365 days. Busier than expected? Not a problem. You can always add more hours and we’re happy to add new paralegals to your team.
