WE ARE A DYNAMIC ATLANTA, GEORGIA-BASED PERSONAL INJURY LAW FIRM LOOKING FOR AN EXPERIENCED LEGAL ADMINISTRATOR
We are looking for a Professional Legal Administrator. This is an executive-level position responsible for a wide range of activities in all phases of administration, personnel, finances, facilities, and business systems.
We need someone with significant hands-on experience. You will handle key administrative responsibilities and play a major role in shaping firm culture.
You must have experience managing a team of more than 10 people and a budget of more than $2,000,000. This is not a position for an “Office Manager” or an “Administrative Assistant.
We have put a lot of energy into building our “A team” and we need to take it to the next level. As you know, the Legal Administrator is a key hire; it is crucial that we get this right! Our process might take a little longer than you’re used to…but it’s worth it. If you take the time to read this ad and follow the instructions to apply, we will be excited for the chance to learn more about you.
This position is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and is responsible for overseeing and improving both our people and our systems.
Our Legal Administrator will be responsible for planning and managing the day-to-day operations of the Firm, and for implementing Firm policies and procedures under the general guidance and supervision of the owner.
Our Legal Administrator will create or improve all administrative functions in our firm. We are building a firm where systems run the business, and people run the systems.
You must be able to show evidence of your prior success with:
What you can do is important. Who you are is equally important. The right person for this role must:
PLEASE NOTE: We do not accept applications made directly through Indeed, WizeHire, or our law firm website. If you are interested in applying to this position, please see the instructions at the end of this posting.
We need someone with the experience and maturity to keep the Firm’s needs at the forefront and work closely with the Owner and key staff on strategy, policy, problem-solving, and decision-making.
The ideal candidate understands that you cannot manage what you do not measure – and can help us figure out how to build systems to ensure we can measure and manage effectively.
We need a Firm Administrator who is an expert in project management and systems development, who will be invested in making important contributions to the operating and financial success of the Firm.
Our ideal candidate is not just comfortable with growth and change but thrives in an environment where people are constantly looking to improve the business and themselves. Our business grew fast, and while we are not a “start-up,” we have a growth-focused environment.
Working with us can prove to be the best job you ever had or the most frustrating … depending on your flexibility, team spirit, commitment to our clients, and your realistic expectations about what it’s like to work in a fast-paced growing business with a passionate and entrepreneurial owner.
Prior legal experience is required. Knowledge of personal injury law will be helpful but is not required. If you don’t have knowledge of personal injury law, you need to commit to getting up to speed quickly because you will be expected to make sure cases and clients are getting the attention they need and that the staff is following the rules.
Salary is dependent upon experience and includes an incentive program commensurate with performance. We will define specific KPIs for expected law firm growth, profitability, and culture.
TO APPLY, WE NEED YOU TO FOLLOW A TWO-STEP PROCESS.
This will be a multi-step interview process so we can get to know each other and make sure we are a good fit; this is the first step. If you don’t follow the instructions for applying, your journey stops here. Send an email to email@example.com and attach a PDF of your resume and a cover letter. The letter should tell us (a) why you would be great for this job, (b) what makes you nervous about this job, and (c) what your favorite movie is and why. The subject line of the email should say: “Administrator Rockstar".
We do good work and take great satisfaction in helping injury victims. Nothing makes us happier than the expression of relief or gratitude on our client’s face at the end of a job well done. We want to be profitable, too. We want to have a good life and we want to pursue our hopes and dreams and help you pursue yours. We also care about our work family and we are very dedicated to maintaining a positive and upbeat work environment. If this sounds like a law firm you want to work at and a job you can do, I very much look forward to talking with you soon.
