My career as a legal assistant began in 1991 working with a malpractice attorney in Austin, Texas. For the next 10 years, I had the opportunity to learn every aspect of administering and supporting a law office – from secretary to office manager to paralegal duties. This gave me a wealth of experience spanning the legal field, particularly in litigation (my personal favorite).
Since then, exposure to other firms’ procedures and programs gave me a diversity of experience and the ability to quickly and efficiently assimilate information. Having worked with differing court systems, I am comfortable with e-filing, coordinating hearings, scheduling depositions and the necessary notifications and follow up.
I am a fast and accurate typist and am proficient with many software programs. You’ll find me easy to work with, reliable and responsible as I pay close attention to every detail. My clients tell me they especially appreciate my excellent grammar, writing and editing skills. I am extremely organized, always meeting deadlines with quality work.
Since starting my virtual assistance services in 2007, I have enjoyed working with a variety of clients in both the legal and business arenas.
I’d love to hear from you today to see what I can do for you!
