Frequently Asked Questions

Problem: I always seem to hire the wrong individuals. I place hope or trust in people to do what they say they will do and, in the end, I am disappointed, having wasted time and money training them. The work and stress continue to pile up. How would you help with this?

Solution: The Woven Legal team has helped hundreds of leaders secure support staff to make our clients shine. The key is allowing us to understand you, your needs, strengths, and even weaknesses (everyone has them!) so we can match you with your very best paralegal, legal assistant, intake specialist, firm manager, or Associate attorney. Woven Legal’s Relationship Managers then spearhead focused training and onboarding to avoid molehills becoming mountains and coaching for best performance, longevity, and maximum ROI.

Problem: Managing my staff or vendors is a full-time job and takes me away from the critical legal work that I do. How can Woven Legal help with this challenge?

Solution: The Woven Legal Team has years of experience managing law firm and employee or contractor relationships. Practically, they would meet each member of your team as a third-party advocate and virtual firm office manager to help understand everyone’s challenges and opportunities for improvement. The “little things” that they come to you about are taken off your plate and loaded onto ours. Instead of everyone looking to you for solutions, you will have a POC that handles everything from updating inefficient processes to getting the non-working phone fixed.

Then we stay connected, coaching for best practices as needed to ensure our clients remain delighted with the candidates and results.

Problem: Staffing a full-time Paralegal is expensive, and I only need someone for about 20 hours per week. Can you locate a qualified and experienced fractional paralegal for me?

Solution: Absolutely. We have years of experience vetting for in-house or remote workforces and know the value for our clients of only staffing for what is needed. You feel supported by your (paralegal, legal assistant, intake specialist) who has your best interest in mind and doesn’t cost you as a direct employee would. We source humble, hungry, and smart professionals as part-time, full-time, in-house or virtual, contract or employee staff. We get the right people in place to support your needs.

Frequently asked questions about Administrative Support

Problem: My office’s software doesn’t sync up! It’s so frustrating having to enter client information numerous times. We end up with incomplete information when it comes time to meet with clients. Every program claims to be compatible, but to connect them would probably require hours interacting with customer support or watching training videos. I am simply too busy. This problem is time-consuming and rather embarrassing. How can Woven Legal help?

Solution: You had us at “software!” We love technology. After all, it has been the backbone of allowing our team to work virtually for the last 5+ years. We’ve already invested the time into watching the videos and speaking with customer service so our clients won’t have to. From Asana to Zapier, from Clio to Filevine to MyCase, Fastcase, RocketMatter, ElderCounsel/WealthCounsel, Relativity, and many more, we can help connect tools and devices so you can function as a modern law firm should.

Question: Is Woven Legal Different from a Law Firm Management Consultant?

“Consulting is the business of providing expert advice to a specific group of people.”

Consultants provide advice. Woven Legal does so. much. more.

Woven Legal partners with our clients to execute and implement solutions, manage technology, recruit and staff experienced personnel, even help create marketing strategies. Sometimes these solutions are guided by outside consultants; sometimes, they are crafted based on the unique goals and plans of the firm’s attorneys.

Leave the business of law to us! Founded by an experienced attorney and practice manager and a business professional – both with years of expertise promoting attorneys and their businesses with staffing solutions, brand awareness, and creative marketing strategies – we help drive growth for law firms’ market share.

Areas of expertise include solutions management, lean methodology, best practices implementation for various management systems (including EOS, lean startup, and many others), implementing processes and managing CRM/Case Management databases, professional coaching for key personnel, and other complete customizable support solutions.

Administrative Support

Customized firm administration and support from technical assistance to personnel management. We take on the administrative overhead so you can practice law.

As a modern law firm, I wanted to run my office and staff virtually. However, after I hired several remote contractors for various projects from marketing and book keeping to paralegal work and vendor relations, I quickly became the hub for all of these workers. I needed a central operation manager to help with all of it. That’s where Woven Legal stepped in as a one-stop shop to handle all of these needs. Every time a new projects comes up, I contact Caroline and she identifies the right fit person on her team to work on the project.
