Interesting and challenging place to work.
Legal Secretary/Administrative (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 18, 2013
A typical day involved typing and editing documents regarding real estate, zoning and land use. I typed correspondence and memos from dictation or handwritten notes for 2 attorneys. I answered phones and either took messages or directed calls, sent faxes, made copies and scanned documents into file site. I talked with clients and managed day-to-day calendars for my attorneys. I entered time for my attorneys and monitored their CLE credits. I learned the new software and hardware as it was added to the original system. I assisted in the trusts and estates department by typing and editing documents for the attorneys there.
I found my co-workers to be interesting and fun.
The hardest part of my job was when people didn't return my calls with information that I needed in order to go forward with a project.
I was happiest at work when I was busy and felt that I was accomplishing something.
