Step 6

  • Before you leave your current job or if you are currently unemployed start gathering your references and recommendations.  If you are an experienced virtual paralegal gather your testimonials.
  • Ask your current boss and co-workers for written references before you resign.
  • Ask your current boss and co-workers’ permission to use them as professional references should a potential client want to verify your past employment and experiences.
  • If you are a new virtual paralegal, ask your previous managers and supervisors for references.
  • Ask your professors and teachers for recommendations.
  • You may also get recommendations and references from your pastor/priest, colleagues and supervisors from internships and Pro-bono work.
  • If you are a member of any paralegal or business associations, ask the members including board members and officers for recommendations.
  • If you are an experienced virtual paralegal, ask your clients for their feedback.
  • Improve on the negative and use the positive in your marketing materials and on your website.
  • Ask your clients to write you testimonials to use on your website.
