Phillips Lanier, PLLC

Hiring an awesome Legal Assistant!

We are an entrepreneurial family and real estate law firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an experienced assistant to join our team and be a total superstar – working directly with the owner to support the team and help our clients.

Do you want to help people who are in a difficult and sometimes life-altering situation? Do you want to fight for someone else’s rights and fairness?

We are growing fast and we need an Assistant who can hit the ground running.

Responsibilities

If these statements appeal to you, then you may be our professional:

  • You think in terms of outlines, chronologies, and indexes
  • You see an opportunity for organization where other people see a mess
  • You understand that sometimes it’s OK to leave a message, but sometimes you gotta keep trying until you speak to a person
  • You smile when you answer the phone
  • You are an amazing scheduler with a sickening degree of attention to detail
  • You are very good with calendars, e-mail, spreadsheets, word processing, and the internet
  • Your middle name is “No Drama.”
  • You are an awesome juggler of tasks and can change gears quickly
  • You do not think scanning and copying are “beneath you.”

Qualifications

We love to help people learn and grow. We need an Assistant with experience in family and/or real estate law. The ideal candidate will be able to take initiative on work that needs to be done and complete tasks with minimal hand-holding.

This is a full-time job where you are expected to manage a caseload, so you absolutely must be able to work *in the office* for 40 hours per week. Initial employment compensation will be based on your experience, with opportunities for increases after that. There is an opportunity for additional compensation for those who can demonstrate their profitability.

If this exciting opportunity appeals to you, please follow the instructions listed below. APPLICATIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

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 criminal and family law clients and why you believe they are the most important qualities. In the second paragraph, explain why you applied to this particular ad. 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.
