We are currently seeking a full-time Junior Legal Administrative Assistant for our Abbotsford office. This position presents an excellent and encouraging environment for continued training for newly graduated legal assistants with less than 1 year of experience, to enjoy gradual exposure to a broad variety of ICBC Defence, Family Law and General Civil Litigation.
Established in 1937, Baker Newby is one of the largest law firms in the Fraser Valley with offices in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. With the changing legal landscape of motor vehicle litigation, Baker Newby is well positioned to continue to receive and service a consistent flow of quality ICBC defence matters for several years to come. As a full-service firm with 20 lawyers, we are also uniquely positioned to gradually cross-train assistants in other areas of litigation throughout their career with us.
You would report most directly to two senior Paralegals and a senior Legal Assistant, which provides an excellent and encouraging environment for continued training, offering great opportunity for younger legal assistants to start and accelerate their careers.
A small component of this position includes Reception coverage, answering the phone and greeting clients/service providers while our full-time Receptionist attends to some other daily administrative matters.
Experience with either of Amicus or ESILaw would be considered an asset, in addition to previous experience in any other professional services environment. Candidates must have their Legal Administrative Assistant Certificate, and possess very strong computer skills, as we work in an ever-increasing paperless practice.
While we appreciate all interest, only those considered for an interview will be contacted.
