Legal secretaries also known as administrative assistants are professionals assisting attorneys by performing the daily clerical functions required for the efficient operation of a legal office. 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. They work with clients and perform general administrative duties. Their duties include managing attorneys calendar, answering phones, opening and sorting mail, entering attorneys time, assisting with billing books and coordinating projects with word processing and in-house copy service. Familiarity with legal terminology, state and federal court filing rules, basic legal procedure and law office protocol is important for the legal secretary. Excellent typing and computer skills, including Word, and any document management software like Summation is always beneficial. Legal Secretaries should have expertise in time management, juggling many activities and roles at the same time. Extraordinary organizational skills are required.
