Job Description:

Do you want to help people and families create certainty in life's uncertain moments?

We are an entrepreneurial estate planning firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an experienced legal assistant to join our team and work directly with the owner of the firm to support our growth and our clients.

It is our goal that our clients come away from their experience with us feeling extremely supported throughout the estate planning process and that the support we provide continues past the day their documents are signed. It is also our goal that our clients are very confident that they understand their estate plan and that they know their plan will work for them when their family needs it. We are fast growing and we need a legal assistant that can hit the ground running.--

This position is IN office and NOT a work-from-home position.

Compensation:



--- $38,000 - $44,500 or more depending on experience

Responsibilities:
This position will be responsible for important work, including:
--- Client communication and follow up
--- Docketing court deadlines and scheduling follow-up meetings with clients

--- Drafting letters and simple court documents
--- Drafting documents using standardized forms
--- Answering phone for attorney and calendaring callback and messages as appropriate
--- Email management for attorney using pre-established guidelines
--- Other duties as assigned

If the statements below appeal to you, then you may be our next legal assistant!
--- You smile when you answer the phone
--- You are an amazing scheduler with a sickening degree of attention to detail
--- Your middle name is "No Drama"
--- You do not think scanning and copying are beneath you
--- You like having fun at work, but not in the "this might leave a mark" kind of way

We love to help people learn and grow, but we don't have time for that right now. We need a full-time legal assistant with prior estate planning experience or business/corporate law experience. The ideal candidate will be able to take the initiative on work that needs to be done and complete tasks with initiative.
