Apply Now

I am an exceptionally busy sole practitioner in the beautiful City of Kingston with offices located in the beautiful and historic downtown core. I practice exclusively in the area of Wills and Estates and have a large and loyal group of clients.

I am looking for an experienced Law Clerk or Legal Assistant to join my busy firm. Responsibilities will include: reception; scheduling; preparing preliminary drafts of Wills, together with all ancillary documents; generating Probate Applications; basic Estate and Trust Accounting; and generally taking good care of our clients in a timely fashion.

The ideal candidate would have a Diploma from either a recognized Law Clerk program or a recognized Legal Assistant Program. In addition, the ideal candidate would also possess keen editorial skills, a love of language, exceptional computer skills, self-discipline and the capacity to learn and expand with each file. At least one, but preferably two, years of experience in Wills and Estates is also a prerequisite, as is a familiarity with all the usual legal office and legal practice programs.

If you are someone who is committed to excellence, to customer service and who loves what they do, I would like to hear from you. Regrettably, I am not in a position at this time to train recent graduates or those with little to no relevant experience. I would, accordingly, ask to hear only from qualified candidates.

Compensation will be commensurate with experience.

Interested candidates should submit their resume in confidence by Thursday, September 12, 2019 to:
