Job Description

NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE

Are you the next communications assistant for our law firm?

We are a fast growing, busy law firm that helps individuals in their family law and insurance matters.

We need you to be the best first impression we can make on the people who reach out to us for legal help, general information, appointment scheduling, case updates, or other matters where a friendly, knowledgeable person makes the difference between extreme frustration or Extreme satisfaction.

You should be the kind of person who gets deep satisfaction from dealing with people and helping them solve their problems or give them relevant information. You must be a "people person", meaning you know how to handle all types of personalities, even the ones that occasionally make it difficult. You must know how to make people happy without being a pushover. And you must have a deep desire to work for a firm that wants to grow crazy and makes a real difference in people's lives.

Because we are a successful firm, we have a lot of people demanding our attention and we need you to help sort all that out. You will essentially be our "Director of First Impressions," and you are going to spend a lot of time on the phone talking to these kinds of people:

  • Court staff and sometimes judges
  • Lawyers from other law firms
  • Insurance company adjusters
  • Pesky salespeople trying to get past the "gatekeepers"
  • Current clients
  • Prospective new clients

Because we would not exist without our current and prospective clients, those last two are the most important of all.

Job responsibilities will include:

  • Opening and maintaining files
  • General reception
  • Strong Microsoft suite application skills
  • Strong computer skills; Data entry experience a plus
  • Detail oriented

Here are some of the reasons you may want to work here;

  • You want to be a part of a team the delivers results and literally makes our clients cry tears of joy.
  • You read this ad and felt a surge of excitement
  • You want to be challenged, not bored, by the work that you are doing for forty hours of your life every week.
  • You want to work with people you actually like.
  • You want to work with people who enjoy what they do every day.
  • You want the chance to earn regular raises and performance bonuses.
  • You have hopes, goals, and dreams for yourself, and would be inspired by spending time with like-minded people.
  • You can find passion and purpose in helping to accomplish a greater mission.

If these apply to you, you will thrive here.

If you are still reading, you are intrigued and we are intrigued. And because we want to build a team of high-performance winners who are not afraid of a challenge, we expect you to prove yourself. Again, if that idea does not thrill you, stop reading now.

So here's how to apply. Make a great first impression by following these directions exactly: Send an email to legaljobsatl at gmail.com. The subject line of the email must be "Your next Director of First Impressions is (your name)". You MUST attach, in PDF format, a copy of your resume, which must include your name, email address, street address, daytime phone number, your work history in reverse chronological order (most recent at the top) with all time gaps explained (In school, unemployed, whatever ... honesty is the best policy), and your education. In the body of the email, please answer, in one to five sentences, this question: What traits and skills will make you the ideal candidate for this position?

If you do not follow these directions, we will reject you without further consideration or notice.

We will contact you within ten days if you qualify for the second round of consideration. We will not contact you if you do not qualify.
