Fast Paced and Inivative Law Firm
Case Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – May 24, 2017
McGuireWoods LLP, was a great learning experience for me. This is a very large International law firm that deals with big named clients and various types law. The atmosphere was fast passed and highly stressful, as our office alone dealt with hundreds of case in just the litigation department. On a typical day I would monitor our service inbox, that essentially dealt with every pleading, document or email correspondence that was served on any of our attorneys. I would save, index and circulate the said documents, and then enter the corresponding deadlines or hearings associated with the document. I also would draft pleadings for the attorneys when asked and also handle any administrative tasks asked of me. Everyone from the mailroom staff all the way up to the managing partner were a delight to be around and very respectful, even though the job was highly stressful. The most difficult part of the job was the repetitiveness and the lack of change. The most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling of knowing what I was doing was important. All in all, working at McGuireWoods LLP was an experience I would never change and I would highly recommend to anyone searching to work in a fast paced and thriving environment.
