Why I Use Ruby as my Virtual Receptionist

Tue, 27 Dec 2011 03:45:35 +0000

I’ve written about Ruby Receptionist quite a bit. They handle the overflow calls for my law firm. Some people might say that voicemail is good enough for their business. But here’s why I pay Ruby instead of letting calls go to voicemail: people don’t leave voicemail messages. Unfortunately, Ruby doesn’t answer my phones 24/7. They’re […](image)

For the past eleven days, I’ve been the proud owner of an Asus Eee Pad Transformer. Now that I’ve used it a bit and gotten the hang of things with it, it’s a good time to provide my thoughts. GO BUY ONE! This device normally retails at $399. Right now Staples has a coupon for […](image)

I’ve said before that reciprocal endorsements might be a problem in Virginia under Rule 7.2(c): A lawyer shall not give anything of value to a person for recommending the lawyer’s services except that a lawyer may… (exceptions are for advertising costs, non-profit lawyer referral services, and buying a law practice) I decided to contact our […](image)

A Day in Andrew’s Practice

Tue, 07 Jun 2011 03:21:34 +0000

Have you ever looked back at a day and wondered what you actually did? I’ve had a crazily busy day today, so I decided to figure out where my 13 hours of work went. Here’s my day: 49 email conversations 44 phone calls 4 hours and 14 minutes on the phone 13 new potential clients […](image)

Virtual Receptionist Ruby Does it Again!

Sun, 29 May 2011 01:41:42 +0000

Previously I’ve written about their cool welcome mug and their welcome back cake. Today’s post is to praise them for helping out another solo.

Thu, 19 May 2011 14:20:41 +0000

Here’s my take: referrals fees are allowed in Virginia; I receive them, and I’m happy to pay them. That single sentence may cause a […](image)

Sat, 19 Feb 2011 02:57:54 +0000

On Tuesday a colleague asked if I’d read a free guide published by an outfit called “Attorney Sync”. They do lawyer web marketing. I was curious what they had to offer, so I checked out the guide she mentioned: (I’m purposefully not making this an active link because I don’t want them to benefit […](image)

Sat, 04 Dec 2010 03:41:25 +0000

One question that comes up a lot for attorneys is: What to put in the client fee agreement? I’ve worked hard to make mine simple, not intimidating, and in plain English. I know it doesn’t cover every imaginable possibility, but it’s worked great so far in my practice. It has evolved a bit over time, […](image)
