Tax Legal Assistant                           Galleria                                  $65k - $75k

The process from the beginning of a case to the end, is generally the same on all cases and will typically run anywhere from two months (for cases that settle) to a year.  Most of our legal assistant work requires the use of templates for pleadings, motions, discovery, etc., e-filing and keeping their attorney’s calendar/docket up to date at all times.  Unlike commercial litigation where a practice may have a moderate number of large cases, our case files are very small but we have a tremendous volume.  Because there are so many cases for each attorney and legal assistant to handle, attention to detail and organization is essential.  They must be proactive and manage their attorney’s docket effectively, making sure their attorney is where he/she needs to be every day.  They must be able to follow up, follow up, follow up and not be shy about reminding their attorney (repeatedly, if necessary) of deadlines and getting essential documents and answers from the attorney when they are not responsive.  Since we have so many cases, these attorneys are flooded with emails every day.  I have found that the most effective way to get answers from them is to ask face-to-face to which they are all very receptive.  Basically, the legal assistants that work well in this practice have taken ownership of and manage their attorney’s practice.
