Law Office Manager

One of the people that lawyers rely on the most in their office is the law office manager since he or she is essentially the person that is the connector between the lawyers and the other legal staff that helps the lawyers (paralegals, title examiners, etc). The connection that this office manager can have with both the attorneys and the other legal staff is essential because of how important it is for all of the legal staff to get along and work together well.

However, the law office manager is more in touch with the other legal staff since he or she is considered their supervisor to oversee what they’re doing during the course of the day in order to help the lawyer that is in charge of the office win his or her cases. In supervising the legal staff, he or she will also oversee everything that occurs in the office including the receiving and giving away of office supplies and equipment as well as the handling of law records. These responsibilities are very important to the law office that he or she will be working for since the attorney in charge will need all of this to be recorded; it’ll all prove helpful when taxes are done and if they are needed.

When a legal recruiter sees that you want to try to become a law office manager, that recruiter knows that you’re determined to utilize your skills in various fields such as management and finance because of the responsibilities that you’ll have to learn to do when you apply and get hired by a recruitment agency such as Boston Legal Recruitment.

The finance portion of this job is in looking at how to reduce costs in order to save money whether you’re trying to save on supplies or just get taxes done faster. One of the skills needed in order to succeed in this job is to be great with numbers because of what you’ll learn to do if you go to a recruiter when it comes to the budget that your office has.

The management portion of this career comes with overseeing and motivating the other legal staff in the office to do their jobs quickly and efficiently since some of the staff that could be potentially hired could need a bit more motivation than expected. However, this doesn’t happen often but attention to detail is also necessary when taking this position as well as the ability to communicate with your staff and the lawyers that you’re answering to.

If becoming a law office manager interests you, then you should send your curriculum vitae (or CV) to a legal recruiter such as Boston Legal Recruitment and we’ll look at it to give you the proper training depending on what you desire to do in the field of law.
