As an Estate Planning Paralegal, you play the vital role of being the main line of communication with our clients. Thanks to the robust initial and ongoing training that we provide you with, you are able to provide our clients with competent service. You are self-motivated and respected by the attorneys, taking on a role more similar to a junior attorney than an office manager. You get to help manage and execute legal estate plans.
Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills come in handy, as you interact with clients a lot! You greet each prospect and client with a warm, down-to-earth smile, helping them feel at ease. In addition to in-person appointments with clients, you also communicate with clients via email and telephone on a daily basis.
During meetings, you sit second chair with the attorney and take notes, following up with clients after. You draft documents for the different client packages and run meetings with clients yourself in the later stages of the process. Your organizational skills also help you excel in this position as you do help with filing, maintaining office supplies, appointment scheduling, and event workshop support. You're always up for a challenge and thrive in our fast-paced environment!
