Legal Secretaries can be employed in a private law firm, corporation, government agency, or legal services office. They are often trusted with confidential information. Experience in a transactional practice area in a law firm environment is always essential to be successful. Understanding, recognizing, and honoring the value of confidentiality in communications is the most essential characteristic of a legal secretary.
