Legal Secretary Jobs

Legal Secretary Jobs at Orchard Legal

Legal secretaries work in law offices and perform secretarial tasks that are specific to the legal sector: writing legal documents, such as contracts, court papers, and wills as well as summonses, motions, subpoenas, etc., conducting research and reading legal articles, and more; as well as standard secretarial duties, that might include drafting letters, often from templates, answering phones, scanning, taking initial client calls, arranging meetings and dealing with email. Some attend police cells with lawyers or solicitors. Many run office filing systems and order stationery. In bigger firms such duties are the responsibility of Practice or Office Managers who might also look after HR, facilities, insurances, office social events and so forth. The legal secretary’s main objective is to assist the fee earning solicitor or lawyer to bill by reducing as much non-essential work from their work-load.

One of the main differences between legal secretaries and paralegals is the type of client contact that they have. Legal secretaries have administrative roles, in which they perform administrative tasks for an attorney, such as scheduling meeting, taking messages from clients, and collecting information from clients.
