Challenges

Law firms often have to increase their client-base or the number of matters they handle in order to increase profits. Unfortunately, this usually requires hiring additional attorneys with increasing salary requirements and associated overhead costs. Small or specialized law practices are the most vulnerable, requiring greater numbers of cases to be assigned to the attorneys in order to consistently develop and grow. And time that should be spent strategizing about additional ways to enlarge a firm’s business can be forever lost in repeatedly gathering the same information from new clients and completing the same countless forms.

Bankruptcy practitioners face unique time and case management pressures. Federal statutes aim to keep bankruptcy cases on accelerated litigation tracks requiring bankruptcy lawyers to routinely work on tight deadlines. At the same time, evolving law allows certain kinds of bankruptcy cases to continue for years while still proceeding on “expedited” schedules. Lawyers must be quick and efficient while operating in an increasingly complex and fact-dependent legal frame work, and this leaves very little time for them to expand their practices.

Immigration attorneys face their own set of time constraints. They must manage extremely detailed and diverse client information while negotiating the complex, quickly changing web of US immigration legal requirements and deadlines. Maneuvering through bureaucracy and staying up to date with developing law leaves room for little else in a largely transactional practice. While relying on paralegals and office assistants can ease some of the short-term time pressure, this kind of support often does not allow attorneys to leverage the kind of volume required to cultivate and develop increasingly profitable practices over the long-term.

Solutions

Our team of paralegals and lawyers will work around the clock to ensure that cases move quickly from intake through trial while saving our clients valuable time and resources. Our lawyers have expertise in most legal software platforms, as well as experience running their own varied caseloads and assisting partners with higher value and more complex cases. Additionally, they are easily accessible to handle routine paralegal and other administrative support activities to further reduce client workloads. At any time, Mind Merchants’ services can be modified or otherwise customized to suit particular business needs, and the teams can be scaled up or down to handle sudden volume changes.

Services

Mind Merchants attorney teams bring comprehensive solutions to these problems by helping law firms and attorneys prepare certain documents and client files. By combining their skills and experience with the latest technology, Mind Merchants’ teams produce quick, high-quality results. Yet the teams’ services are also customized according to each client’s specific needs, resulting in the most narrowly-tailored, cost-efficient services possible. Clients need not remain tied to any fixed investment in backend support but instead can bring in Mind Merchants’ teams only on an as-needed basis. This brings clients new levels of flexibility and scalability allowing them to concentrate on business strategies and core legal competencies. And Mind Merchants achieves all of this while adhering to internationally-recognized standards of information security.
