Law Office of Jennifer L. Bennett

The Law Office of Jennifer L. Bennett is seeking a Legal Administrative Assistant. This is a great role for a current student looking for law office experience.  We are a small law firm that specializes in immigration and family law. This role will provide administrative support primarily to the family law portion of the firm. Candidates with experience in family law will be given preference. Specifically, we are interested in candidates with 1-3 years of experience in the following areas:
• E-filing
• Preparing appearances, summons, drafting motions and petitions
• Assisting attorneys with all family law legal tasks

A strong applicant will have superb written and verbal English communication skills, paired with excellent customer relations skills and experience in a client-facing role. Bilingual candidates who also speak Spanish are a big plus for our firm.

This position will require a candidate who is analytical, has strong problem-solving skills, is tech savvy and is comfortable working with new applications.

Flexibility is key as this role will cover more complex administrative tasks, such as mail scanning/filing, document tracking in Trello, as well as more general administrative tasks such as printing, filing, shredding and appointment/schedule/time management.

This role is full-time (40 hrs per week). Our office hours are 9am-5pm. Preferably, the applicant will live in close proximity to our office in Chicago, but absolutely must live in Cook County, IL.

We strive to be a very modern law firm, so the right candidate must be eager, self-motivated and demonstrate strong initiative and drive. A BA degree or equivalent experience is required for this role and prior experience is strongly preferred. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in family law, to applicants with experience in a small office setting, to applicants who are bilingual and fluent in Spanish.

This job is to begin immediately. Salary is negotiable and will vary depending upon experience, but we anticipate a range of $15-20/hr. Benefits will be offered.

Please submit a Cover Letter and Resume via email to abigail@jlblawgroup.com. Please start the subject line of the email with ‘JLB-Job’ and in the body of your email, please state whether or not you live in the City of Chicago.
