JOB OVERVIEW

Do you want to be a teaUpgrade to see actual infomber to help clients spend more time in their living room and not in the courtroom?

We are an entrepreneurial Family Law firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an experienced legal assistant to join our team and work directly with the owners and attorneys to support the team and help our clients.

Family Law problems suck! We want to be known for helping our clients solve their legal problems, so they 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 we need a legal assistant who can hit the ground running.

This position will be responsible for important work, including:

* Answer telephones; screen attorney calls; take messages and address calls to minimize attorney involvement with incoming calls
