Always Make all Prospects and Clients Feel Welcome!

This is #1 – we’ll provide you with the tools, training and team to support you, but we can’t train for this, so if you don’t have it, this is not a fit.

This position includes connecting with clients, inputting their information into our database, following up with them by email and phone to share and collect documents and information, and schedule and confirm meetings.

Ensure attorneys are prepared for the week ahead, know who they are meeting with, and make sure they have everything they need.

Maintain office equipment and supplies.

Assist Client Service Director with various office function to ensure office is running smoothly.
