My duty as a legal secretary includes overseeing all clerical tasks that are necessary for keeping a law firm running efficiently. I often prepare documents, including legal briefs, Motions, Formal Offer of Exhibit, Affidavits and other kind of letters. I also organize and maintain all legal files kept on-site. I also maintain electronic-filing databases.
I often provide lawyers with direct assistance, such as helping with research for cases, gathering necessary documents for trials and submitting paperwork to courthouses. My other duties include scheduling client appointments and answering phone calls.
Our law firms deal with multiple clients simultaneously, as a legal secretary I am effective in multitasking. Strong organizational skills and attention to detail are also my essential characteristic. I am a computer literate. I am also doing legal documents. I have also a good communication skill in dealing with foreign clients. I converse directly with attorneys, clerical personnel, courtroom staff members, clients and witnesses.
