You'll play an integral role in creating first-class client experiences within a real estate and probate law firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an experienced Legal Assistant to join our team and be a total superstar – working directly with the owner to support the team and help clients.
We strive to help clients come out of an extremely emotional process feeling as though they are a better person, in a better position, and that they had a team behind them that really cared and fought for them. We are growing fast and need a Legal Assistant who can hit the ground running.
We are looking for a legal assistant who is equally skilled at providing clients with the ultimate customer service experience as you are handling very important attorney support tasks. This job requires the right combination of empathy, communication skills, attention to detail, and technical legal support skills. If these statements resonate with you, then you may be our All-Star:
Customer service experience, legal experience, and experience working in an office in a clerical/secretarial role are required. You embrace technology and have strong practical experience with cloud-based platforms for case management, document management, CRM, calendars, e-mail, spreadsheets, and word processing.
You have extensive practical experience with common office applications (Word, Outlook email calendar, Google, etc.)
You must have excellent spelling and grammar.
You have a penchant for accuracy and will work tirelessly to avoid mistakes that can cost clients (and us) dearly.
You MUST be a positive person. If your middle name is “Drama,” you will not be successful here.
You should treat a client, case, or task at 4:30 pm on Friday with the same care and compassion as one on Monday morning at 9:00 am.
We are investing time and energy in building our A-Team. Initial compensation will be based on your experience, with opportunities for increases after that. There is an opportunity for bonus compensation for those who can demonstrate their profitability.
If this sounds like a good fit for you, you will need to complete a two-step process in order to be considered. Along with your resume, prepare a cover letter with no more than TWO paragraphs and a closing sentence. In the first paragraph explain what you believe are the 3 most important qualities needed in someone who works with real estate and probate clients and why you believe they are the most important qualities. In the second paragraph, explain why you applied to this particular job posting. As a closing sentence please write, “I have read the instructions contained in the job posting and have followed the instructions.”
We look forward to reviewing your application.
Build customer relationships with existing clients by reaching out via phone calls, emails or other forms of communication to increase the likelihood of the using our services again.
We help our clients navigate complex legal issues affecting their families, their homes, their assets, and their legacies and provide legal expertise and quality client service. We strive to have a well-organized, well-managed, productive law firm that can make a profitable contribution to our clients and to the legal system; to have a favorable Work-Life Balance and provide a work product that is timely, accurate, and of value to our clients. We are fair, honest, and ethical in all dealings with our clients, employees, and we try to do everything in our power to make this firm a good place in which to work and an asset to both our social and legal communities.
