Paralegal as a Service is changing the way attorneys practice the law. Work with a virtual paralegal to complete legal work in any area of law or jurisdiction.
Virtual paralegals perform the duties of an in-house paralegal from a remote location. The best part about hiring virtual paralegals is that they provide their services on a per-case or hourly basis. Contracted paralegal support dramatically decreases expenses and facilitates growth for your law firm.
Perfect for the busy solo or any law firm needing extra assistance, a virtual paralegal will cut costs and free up your time so you can increase your caseload and focus on clients.
A NextChapter paralegal schedules an initial consultation to discuss how you'd like to use the service, as well as to get more information regarding the scope of work.
The virtual paralegal contacts the client on your behalf to obtain information and documents to prepare the filling.
Once you approve the case and obtain client signatures, one of our virtual paralegals will file the case with the court.
They will do all the data entry, legal research, due diligence searches and more to prepare the casework for your review.
A NextChapter paralegal will provide regular updates to the attorney and track any important dates, deadlines or hearings necessary.

Proofreading and cite checking

Janine founded NextChapter after working in the legal field as a paralegal for over a decade. Starting a career in foreclosures and creditors’ rights, Janine soon discovered that she wanted to help debtors on the consumer side so she joined a small practice where she developed the bankruptcy division, grew it into multiple offices and after four years with the firm, she went out on her own and started a virtual paralegal firm called The Paralegal Team. Janine worked as the lead paralegal drafting petitions for both large and small practices around the country. It was her years working virtually which inspired her to add the Paralegal as a Service offering to NextChapter.
