Case Study: James, His Law Firm and a
NYC Virtual Office
How can a Virtual Office help you?
Case Study: James
Type of Business: Attorney
Location: Brooklyn, New York
Services: New York Virtual Office, Meeting Room Usage
James worked for a prestigious law firm in Midtown Manhattan – all
day, early mornings, late nights, all nighters… He had enough!;
enough of the schlep, enough of the commute and most of all,
enough of the suit and tie! James HATED the suit and tie. He was
ready to break away and start his own law firm and hit the ground
running. He gave his 2-week notice and left his position at this
dreadful law firm.
He immediately started preparations to go out on his own.
Purposefully having no Plan B, he was going to make this work, he
had to. He quickly realized that he would need, first and foremost,
an office. Being on a limited budget, he knew that he would not be
able to afford renting his own brick and mortar office, not to mention
all the associated costs that go along with renting an office: electric,
furniture, insurance, staff, supplies, etc…
James recalled that one of his former colleagues, Bruce, left the
same midtown law firm a few months before he did. James
contacted Bruce to touch base and see how independent life was
treating him… and to possibly get some guidance. Bruce told James
about the services he was utilizing along with services offered by
ManhattanVirtualOffice.com. James was intrigued about the
quality and affordability of the services recommended by Bruce, this
is just what he needed.
James contacted ManhattanVirtualOffice.com to open his
own New York office. James initially subscribed to our physical
office address rental (virtual office) service. He needed to receive
paperwork, correspondence, legal documents, and service of
process at our offices. Any items received in his new law firm’s
name would need to be overnighted to his Brooklyn home address.
James was quickly tying all those loose ends, it was coming
together for him.
James was ready and excited to finally be able to work from home.
His office was all set up with ManhattanVirtualOffice.com in
Manhattan. He got his website domain name, business cards, and
placed a few ads.
Today, James wakes up bright and early, showers, and puts on a
pair of shorts and a t-shirt and works in his home office all day. He
takes a quick break in the morning and afternoon to walk his dog.
By late afternoon he receives any paperwork that has been
overnighted from the office. He works with clients via phone and
email during the week. James rents the available office meeting
room for 4 hours every two weeks or so from 12-4pm. He schedules
all his client consultations during this time period, one every 30
When client consultation day arrives, James gets to the office in the
dreaded suit and tie, with his Fiji water in hand, sets up his laptop
and is ready within seconds for his first guest. He leaves a list of his
appointments with the receptionist and she greets and announces
each client. If James needs copies of legal documents or ID’s, he
gives them to the receptionist to make. After his last appointment,
he leaves the office at 4pm and is back home in Brooklyn before the
James is a pleasure to have as a client. He loves his virtual work life
and more so since our services enable him to have the freedom he
wants by providing the physical presence he requires. And most of
all he loves only having to put on his “Monkey Suit” (and tie) every
couple of weeks!
