Established in 1937, Baker Newby is one of the largest Fraser Valley law firms with offices in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. We are currently considering a General Solicitor’s Assistant for our Chilliwack office, to begin employment closer to May/June. This position may be suitable for any of:
– Graduated Legal Administrative Assistants with law firm experience in solicitor-related areas of law such as real estate, corporate, and commercial transactions;
– Established General Solicitor Assistants with land and commercial transaction experience looking to relocate to Chilliwack or the Fraser Valley; or,
– Mature experienced legal assistants who may have left the legal industry for any amount of time, looking to re-establish themselves within a law firm.
You would initially report most directly to a Senior Paralegal, which provides an excellent and encouraging environment for continued training.
The successful candidate will have meticulous attention to detail, established writing skills, the ability to work in a team-oriented environment, and possess very strong computer skills as we work in an ever-increasing paperless practice. Candidates will be familiar with LTSA, BC Online, ETray and Steps, and may have experience with Amicus, ESILaw and ALF.
While we appreciate all applications, only those candidates considered for an interview will be contacted.
