Yesterday, I was sitting on the beach waiting to get into a volleyball game and talking to a friend about cool companies in Chicago, IL. She mentioned that her company shares office space with a really interesting business that is in the legal space. We don’t typically cover law firms because our target market isn’t law school graduates (though I know at least a few subscribe). In many ways Total Attorneys resembles a law firm, but there’s one major exception: they don’t practice law. They offer cloud-based software solutions for individual lawyers and small firms, so that lawyers can spend more time lawyering and less time doing all of the other stuff that comes along with running a successful law practice.
Total Attorneys focuses on three key areas with their products. The first is a web-based Law Practice Management System. It’s kind of like Google Docs, but it’s completely tailored to lawyers and their specific use cases. The second product is a Virtual Receptionist Service. Total Attorneys offers receptionists who are trained to take legal phone calls, which frees up lawyers to focus on more important things than answering the phone. The third offering is the most interesting to me. It’s a Legal Marketing Platform that helps individual lawyers and small firms get more clients. Running a successful practice is all about having a good flow of incoming cases, especially for lawyers that take clients on a contingency basis (usually for a percentage of a settlement or judgement). Generating leads and turning them into clients could easily eat up all of a lawyer’s available time. Total Attorney’s Legal Marketing Platform makes it a much less time consuming process.
Being a lawyer and running a business require two very different skill sets. Some people are great at both, but even those people run out of hours in the day. Total Attorneys separates the everyday tasks that come along with running a law practice from the actual practice of law. They seem to be doing really well, which is probably why they have a number of jobs posted on their Careers page. The ones that look best suited for a new or recent grad include Consumer Advocate, UX Web Designer, Web Designer, Online Writer, SEO Specialist, and Sales Representative.
