Equivity is looking for a part-time virtual legal secretary based on the West Coast who has 3+ years of experience working as a legal administrative assistant or legal secretary in a law firm and is comfortable remotely managing the administrative needs of a law office. If you enjoy supporting attorneys, pride yourself on your organizational abilities, pay meticulous attention to detail, have excellent communications skills, and thrive in a work-from-home environment, we want to hear from you!
Equivity works closely with our clients to provide them with virtual assistants who are experienced in their field and have successfully worked in a remote or virtual environment. Our law firm clients range from solo practitioners to multi-partner firms, and run across all specialty areas of law including litigation, family law, bankruptcy, real estate, and much more.

This particular candidate will be well-versed on day-to-day administrative needs of a law firm and busy attorneys, and will have worked for at least three years in a law firm setting.
More about our company:
Equivity provides virtual assistance to clients across the United States, with specialties in administrative, marketing, and paralegal support services. Our virtual assistants work with a high degree of autonomy and are responsible for developing relationships with our clients. Because we provide extremely attentive service to our clients, you must be available to respond to client communications during business hours within one hour by email, phone, and text, and be available to work on projects during the business day. All of this work is done remotely, meaning that you can work from home.
The selected candidate would be hired as a part-time employee of Equivity, not an independent contractor.
