About Us

Amata has helped elevate the operations of more than 1,800 law firms since 2002.

Our innovative model allows firms to grow without constraints. It includes four key points:

  1. Scalability
    Most office spaces require you to commit to a year-long contract. The problem is that if an associate leaves or you want to expand your team, the initial space that you contracted no longer serves you. With Amata, Clients can add or drop offices during the term of the agreement, without penalties, and with just a one-month notice. This results in true office flexibility.
  2. Prestigious offices, without the expensive overhead
    One of the burdens of growing your own firm is giving up several corporate benefits such as support staff, conference rooms, a prestigious address, and, yes, café’s with great coffee. At Amata, you can access the luxurious environment of a Fortune 500 company, while having pricing flexibility that suits the exact stage of growth you are at.
  3. On-demand legal staff
    For law firms specifically, we have vetted paralegals, legal assistants, clerks, and receptionists who act as an extension of your team. They allow you to grow your firm without the burden of paying for full-time staff (before you need it) or dealing with HR issues. This protects your profits and prepares you for the ever-changing legal landscape.
  4. Hub for innovation
    Both law firms and professional service companies drive more than 80% of their business when meeting other professionals. In Amata, we have private spaces for focus and confidentiality, and shared spaces for networking, business development, and partnership-building events.

Our Focus

Our journey began by managing the backend operations for lawyers, including tasks like litigation copy work and small print jobs. A commitment to great work led Amata to be chosen as the in-house printing partner for the American Bar Association, and continue expanding from there. Throughout this journey, our primary focus has been putting our clients first, doing whatever it takes to serve those who have trusted us with their business.

Building long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships is at the core of everything we do. We have evolved many times over the years, as we continue to stay ahead of the changing business landscape and create an environment where our clients can thrive both professionally and personally.

Our Founder

Amata was founded by Ron Bockstahler after realizing that building a thriving career was meaningless without balancing all other areas of our lives. Our big ‘why’ is improving profitability, simplifying growth, and promoting a healthier work/life balance for professionals like you. Since 2002, we have served more than 1800 lawyers and professional service firms. We also care deeply about those in need in Chicago and beyond, hence our commitment to donating time, money, and skills to our partner charities.


You can quickly and easily schedule a meeting with us any time using our Get Started page.

Charges specified in your agreement, such as office fees, are invoiced on the 10th day of the current month for the upcoming month, and payment is due on the 1st day of that following month. For example, office fees for the month of March will be invoiced by February 10th, with the invoice due on March 1st.

We bill for services in the billing cycle following the completion of those services. To illustrate, if a service, such as a filing, is completed on March 15th, the corresponding charges will appear on the invoice generated on April 10th, with payment due by May 1st. For additional information on our billing options, please visit our pricing page.

Depending on your office and admin support needs, a long-term contract may be necessary. However, we offer programs that boast flexible terms that are some of the best in the industry.
