South Lyon Michigan Law Office

Fast-growing probate and estate planning law firm in South Lyon, Michigan is seeking a Client Intake Specialist/Receptionist for immediate hire. 

The duties of this position are primarily about making connections with other people. Relationships are formed quickly, informally, and comfortably, and gaining the enthusiasm and cooperation of others is critical. It is very important to connect with other people: to meet new and different people on a daily basis, to quickly form relationships, and to use those relationships to get the work done. Great attentiveness to other people is required: an ability to read other people, to listen to them, and to empathize with them. The job involves persuading others through gaining an understanding of where they’re coming from and using that information to bring them to your desired resolution. Personal interactions will generally be upbeat and cheerful, requiring someone who is warm, helpful, and friendly. Others must be quickly put at ease and made to feel welcome.   There will be a fair degree of difference from one day to the next, especially with regard to personal interactions. There will be several “pots on the fire” at once, and a relatively quick pace is required to keep everything going smoothly.


The Client Intake Specialist/Receptionist will be responsible for:

  • Organizing/maintaining electronic client files in an orderly fashion
  • Assisting other team members as requested
  • Maintaining sufficient levels of office supplies
  • Completing and mailing current and former clients’ birthday cards
  • Tracking and logging all incoming prospective client inquiries
  • Selling prospective clients an initial consultation
  • Sending pre-appointment emails campaign


  • No specific experience is required, but a general familiarity with computers and the ability to learn new software programs with relative ease is imperative
  • Preference will be given to those with prior hospitality or sales experience

The pay for this position is $13-$14 per hour plus discretionary quarterly bonuses of up to $500 or more. We offer 9 paid holidays and 2 weeks of paid vacation/personal days in the first year. This position must be performed on-site at our downtown South Lyon office, and so vaccination against Covid19 is required. The hours are 8:30 am-5:00 pm Monday-Friday. Occasional work-from-home opportunities are available to high achievers.
