"OUR FIRM HELPS FATHERS NAVIGATE THE TREACHEROUS WATERS OF THE FAMILY & IMMIGRATION LAW LEGAL SYSTEM WITHOUT DROWNING.

You will manage the caseload and the Attorneys. You will have to run and sometimes you will have to fly to keep up with them. You will organize the Attorney calendar. You will plan what the Attorney has to do to be ready for what you know is coming up on the calendar. Thank you cards will be sent, gifts, birthday cards, etc. You must have good taste as you will often be making decisions about all kinds of things that represent the Attorney and the Firm.

You are not expected to be a mind reader, at least not in the beginning. You are expected to know when it's time to figure it out on your own and when it's time to just ask for help. You are expected to be proactive and get better every day. We will offer you plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. You will have to grab them.

You will be organized for the Attorney. That means organizing client files (cloud and paper) and basically stay on top of the Attorney's life so things that get created don't have to get recreated or waste time searching for things. Not because you know where everything is, but because you manage a system that empowers everyone to know where things are.

Now let's get to the technical stuff.

You should be familiar with westlaw, mycase, lexicata, microsoft office suite, efile court documents in all Metro Atlanta Counties, USCIS, and Immigration Court. You will draft correspondence, take brilliantly half-baked correspondence and finish it. You will gather, collect, and keep track of all kinds of stuff.

You should be the sort of person who plans ahead, uses good judgment, and defensible criteria when making decisions. You should be the sort of person who can deal with all personalities. You should be able to manage time, energy, and other resources. And you should be a nice person.
