MillerAsen is Hiring – Legal Assistant

MillerAsen, P.A., a boutique law firm in Portland, Maine, is seeking an experienced full-time legal assistant in the family and estate planning/probate areas of law. Our legal assistants skillfully manage a fast-paced workload, docketing and tracking deadlines, drafting correspondence and court documents while working well under the pressure of a busy law practice. The candidate must be a dependable self-starter, who can work both independently and as part of a team and be detail-oriented with superb organizational skills.

The candidate must enjoy working with people and helping them with their legal situation. Because family law often involves discrete, confidential, and emotionally charged issues such as child custody and finances, the successful applicant will have professional, compassionate, and excellent interpersonal communication skills and must be capable of handling clients who may be anxious, upset, or distressed.

Requirements include significant experience and knowledge of family law, estate planning/probate, or litigation, superior administrative support skills, a proactive attitude, and a good sense of humor. A successful applicant for this position will also have excellent listening, verbal, and written communication skills as well as the ability to multi-task, prioritize, and timely follow up. MillerAsen maintains all files digitally, so strong IT skills (Microsoft Word, Outlook, and Excel) are essential.

Interested candidates should reply to this ad with the submission of resume and cover letter to: jlamscha@millerasen.com and cmiller@millerasen.com.
