Houston Virtual Receptionist for Lawyers: ‘Attorney Today’ Program Launched To Serve Work-At-Home Attorneys


HOUSTON, TX, March 23, 2007 -- A virtual receptionist program aimed at the needs of Houston lawyers who work from home was launched today by Intelligent Office, a Galleria-based virtual office services company. The program is called Attorney Today.

“Home-based attorneys are a unique niche in the legal industry,” says Ron Clarke, who along with son Iain, owns and operates Houston-based Intelligent Office ( “These are men and women who want the economies and personal freedom only a work-from-home law practice can provide – but they also want the ability to compete seamlessly, head-to-head with competitors who practice in traditional Houston firms.”

“With Attorney Today,” Clarke says, “we armed our virtual receptionists and virtual assistants with customized technology and training aimed at meeting the individual needs of home-based lawyers. Most attorneys are surprised to learn how affordable it is for a home-based sole practitioner to present a face to the world that makes their practices appear indistinguishable, professionally, from traditional firms,” says Clarke. Some Attorney Today services cost less than $300 a month, he says.

Attorney Today is a mix of office operational services that are combined or used separately: They include:

o A remote receptionist -- Clarke says Intelligent Office virtual receptionists and virtual assistants are equipped with the same professional skills as receptionists in traditional law firms. “They’re trained to speak authoritatively about a lawyer’s practice – but not in a call center atmosphere. Our Intelligent Office remote receptionists and virtual assistants work 8:30 to 5, five days a week just as they would at a typical Houston law firm. They can connect phone calls anywhere in the world with service that is so seamless the caller never knows any difference.”

o A remote office – “Home-based attorneys face special challenges when it comes to meeting a client in a professional atmosphere,” says Clarke. “They can’t meet clients in their home offices or even over coffee at Starbucks without looking unprofessional. With Attorney Today, we can rent an office or conference room on an hourly or daily basis at our Galleria Tower 1 location. Attorneys can also use our locations as a prestigious address to accept and send mail.”

Clarke says his company researched the legal industry and learned that a major transition is taking place within the profession. “Young, progressive attorneys are willing to exercise options few lawyers dreamed possible before,” he says. “They want to spend more time with their families and other personal interests – and they appreciate how technology and remote assistance can let them have their cake and eat it, too,” says Clarke. “Today, we’re seeing a new kind of lawyer who is happy to trade a pinstripe suit and a panoramic view from the 40th floor of a Houston skyscraper for the pleasure of a short commute and the freedom to wear jeans and a t-shirt to the office.”
