Legal Assistant (VA)

Your mission is to create a stellar service and support system for the entire Zell Law team.  You assist, draft, coordinate and organize almost every aspect of the company and are critical to our organizational success on a daily basis.

To do this, you are the CEO of:

  • Document organization and automation
  • The Final Deliverable Phase of Estate Planning
  • Coordinating client signings and appointments
  • Time management and prioritization

You played a critical role in helping every employee and client and everyone loves working with you.  Clients were thrilled that you finalized their estate planning binders quickly.  You were exceptional in anticipating the CEO’s schedule and setting up client appointments.  The other employees relied on you to solve document automation functions.  Your changes made the documents more reliable and saved the company time and money. With your strong legal acumen drafting blogs from past videos was a breeze. You helped transform our team into a family by always jumping in with your “can do” “how can I help” attitude.

Thanks to your hard work, new document systems, processes and how to manuals were created that were praised for their clarity and practical application.  As a result of all of this, you helped ensure Zell Law disrupted the entire legal industry by being able to operate efficiently and effectively without errors.

Outcomes (WHAT)

Own and build out the Document automation system with our vendor and team members

  • Interview Zell Law team members to determine the most frequently used documents that would benefit from automation
  • Use technology to create templates of frequently-used documents
  • Create training materials and how-to videos on the process
  • Train staff on new technology

The Final phase of the Estate planning is delivering the original documents and copies in binders

  • You document the process so any team member can create a binder in record time with little assistance
  • You ensure all basic and advanced binders are prepared accurately and quickly and sent out to our clients within two weeks of their signing the originals.
  • You create accurate transmittal letters and coordinate sending this precious final product out to our clients

 Assisting Key personnel

  • The CEO leans on you heavily to schedule client meetings and travel arrangements
  • You draft correspondence and maintain electronic copies meticulously.
  • You partner with the CEO and Marketing Coordinator to draft blogs from current content

Assisting the entire team

  • You support all of Zell Law every day by scanning documents, saving them in the correct manner and maintaining accurately named and complete client files

  • You are a solution finder.  In all of your work, you grab the bull by the horns and take the initiative to do this rather than waiting for someone to tell you what to do because you get how to constantly make our peoples’ experiences better.
  • You are ridiculously organized. You might be the kind of person who color codes your closet or bookshelf.  You excel at managing your time and resources proactively to knock your goals out of the park. You keep highly detailed notes on all client information and make sure they are available for your team members to access.
  • You are the king/queen of reprioritization.  You have an awesome process in place to ensure you are constantly working on the “top 3 things.”  You get the importance of balancing the speed and quality of your work and when you present completed projects to the CEO and team members, their feedback suggests there were few errors or oversights.
  • You proactively solve problems before they can become real problems.   You are adept at anticipating peoples’ needs before they even realize they have them.  You are always looking ahead curve and building proactive solutions rather than getting stuck having to play “reactive wack-a-mole.”
  • Your communication style compels others to act.   You don’t bury the lead but rather cut to the chase in a fun way when communicating both verbally and in writing.  Even though your communications to all team members are about boring things like appointments and our new document automation system, our people get excited to read them.   The result?  You compel people to act and use them!
  • You are the managing up king or queen.  You provide your team members with timely updates on your work.  It’s unlikely that anyone ever comes to you with questions about where your work stands.
  • You are a glass half full kinda person.  Even though it’s sometimes your job to deal with a difficult client or vendor or system, they don’t bog you down. Instead you see them as opportunities to uncover the root problem and design solutions to address them.
  • You love people and believe it’s your job to make sure they love being at work.  You know that everything you do every day impacts the experience your colleagues have at work (including making sure they know when they can expect a response from you).  Others say you are a trusted, smart, helpful and generous and such a “culture add” that you are psyched to ensure that Zell Law is one of the best companies to work for nationally.
