HLG is saying a bittersweet goodbye to our current Legal Assistant, Mary. She's been an amazing part of our team for the last year and we're sad to see her go as she continues her work pursuing a Master of Social Work degree (including her placement with our colleagues at LCCR) and her ongoing work with her fantastic organization Bar None. Like Jada before her (who works with the La. Ofc. of Pub. Health and founded Transitions Louisiana), Mary has left her mark on HLG and we are thankful for her time and hard work for our clients.
But with every ending comes a new beginning and HLG is now currently seeking a part-time Legal Assistant at our office in downtown New Orleans. This secretarial and support job is ideal for an organized self-starter with ability to work efficiently with minimal supervision once trained. Familiarity with Clio and Microsoft Office suite or similar software preferred.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Managing client correspondence via phone, email, and mail
Conducting prospective client intake
Maintaining organization of office files, both electronic and hardcopy
Generating court documents and assisting with court filing
Managing office calendar
Position is a minimum of two five-hour days weekly in a casual work atmosphere. Opportunity for additional hours as position advances. Hourly compensation exceeds minimum wage. Spanish-English bilingualism is a plus that receives extra compensation. To apply, please send cover letter and resume to Nicholas Hite at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marginalized and underrepresented applicants are highly encouraged to apply.
