Summary: The blog associated with Halo Secretarial Services offers a brief glimpse into the personality of the woman that solo firms and small practices can hire as a virtual assistant.
Laurie Mapp started Halo Secretarial Services in 2008. The services act as a virtual legal assistant practice, which specializes in providing legal assistant and paralegal services. With a lengthy background in legal assistance, Laurie feels that she is more than qualified to offer help for solo practices and small law firms.
The last post
was over a year ago when the company turned six years old. The two posts before that were personal posts, detailing health problems that would keep her from work for a period of time. The fourth post celebrates when the company turned five.
One post that some may find valuable to read is from March 2013 titled, “Dictating on the Go
”. The post explains the main task the assistants take on – typing. The ability to dictate everything that needs to get done is important for clients. One client was interested in an app for his iPhone that would act as a digital recorder.
Luckily, there are an abundance of apps that can record things like a digital recorder does. This makes things easier for the clients and secretaries. Most people carry their phone around, but not a digital recorder. If they do start using a digital recorder app, when a thought comes up, they can immediately get it recorded.
One post that is particularly enjoyable is the “Challenges of a New Operating System
”. For anyone that has transitioned from Windows to Mac, they will understand her struggles in making the transition.
