We are seeking a legal assistant that is passionate about litigation and is looking for a career, not just a job. You will be most interested in this opportunity if you enjoy interacting with clients and are comfortable working with minimal supervision. We are looking for a legal assistant that understands our mission and is committed to delivering the outstanding level of service our clients have come to expect.

About Us

We are expanding our operations and are looking for outstanding individuals to join our team. We are located just west of downtown Edmonton in the trendy 124 St. district. In addition to a general civil litigation practice, we practice real estate, corporate / commercial, wills / estates, construction, and municipal law.

We believe in what we do and are committed to delivering results. This means delivering high quality work and only working with great clients that will benefit from our expertise. Our commitment is to providing quality services that provide our clients with excellent value for your money. We know that if someone is hiring lawyer, they have something serious and important happening in their life - we take this seriously.

Our commitment is to provide a quality of service that reflects the serious and important reasons a client needs a lawyer. We do not cut corners and make sure we focus the time and effort required to properly represent our clients.

The Opportunity

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who understands that our definition of success requires more than just showing up for work on time and completing assigned tasks. We want to work with someone that can understand what needs to be done without specifically being told what to do. The phrase "that's not my job" is prohibited in our office.

We reward talent and initiative - if you have what it takes, there are opportunities to expand into a management role and earn performance bonuses that are directly tied to both your efforts and the success of the office.

Key Requirements

Although we will be hiring a person that we believe possesses the skill and mindset that fits well with our firm's core values, we have some minimum requirements for you to be considered.

You must have at least two years of work experience as a litigation legal assistant to be considered for this position. You also need to be a proficient writer - your success in this position requires you to be able to write letters and prepare documents without making spelling or grammatical errors. For that reason, please submit a cover letter with your application.

We want someone positive and outgoing - you should expect to be interacting with clients in this role. The way you interact with clients has a direct impact on how much they enjoy working with our firm and members of our team need to enjoy and be comfortable with interacting with clients.
