Blattner Family Law Group

Do you want to help people in contentious divorces protect their finances and maximize time with their children? If so, we are seeking a compassionate and empathetic listener that is customer service oriented and passionate about helping people to join our growing team! Our law firm is expanding and needs the help of an intake specialist to take our client relations to the next level and help improve the experience of those seeking our services. You’ll have an opportunity to help people take the next step in living a better life for themselves and their children.

The primary goal of the Legal Intake Specialist is to interview prospective new clients in order to determine if they have a problem or an opportunity that the firm may be in a position to help them with. The focus of this position is working with and through others, building and maintaining relationships, and working closely and accurately within established guidelines. There is a need for an effective communicator, someone who is able to stimulate and motivate others while being aware of and responsive to their needs and concerns. There will be many different people to meet and work with. The person in this position must be friendly and genuinely interested in the business, agenda, and needs of others, including the company, its management, the team, the company's customers, or all of the above. A persuasive, teaching style of communication is required to communicate the company's policies, programs, and systems. A faster-than-average pace will be the norm for this position.

Detail work is a major focus of the job, and those details need to be handled quickly, correctly, and efficiently. This portion of the work will often focus on relationships with others; correct handling of details dealing with others is necessary to maintain and grow relationships. As time is usually a factor, the work must be done on time, as well as correctly. In general, this is a position where guidelines, structure, and established policies must be followed fairly closely while working with and for others.
