We believe there is a better way to handle personal injury claims. We are looking for a Professional Legal Administrator to help us put Personal back into Personal Injury Law. Our Legal Administrator will work directly with our Owner to oversee everything except the practice of law. This includes not only strategic planning, project management, and critical administrative and financial oversight, but is also a key leadership role in shaping and sustaining Firm culture. Employee recruitment, training, and periodic reviews will be conducted by our Legal Administrator, along with handling all aspects of human resources.
This is an executive-level position for a bona fide Legal Administrator who will be responsible for a wide range of activities in all phases of administration, personnel, finances, facilities, and business systems. Our ideal candidate is not just comfortable with growth and change but thrives in an environment where people are constantly looking to improve the business and themselves. Our business grew fast, and while we are not a “start-up,” we have a growth-focused environment. Creating efficiencies in our production is a priority that allows to help more people injured in car accidents. Working with us can prove to be the best job you've ever had … depending on your flexibility, team spirit, commitment to clients, and your realistic expectations about what it's like to work in a fast-paced growing business with a passionate and enterprising owner.
Included benefits: health insurance, life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, long-term disability, periodic performance bonuses, and profit-sharing/retirement contribution (SEP Plan). Salary is dependent upon experience and includes an incentive program commensurate with performance. We will define specific KPIs for expected law firm growth, profitability, and culture. Compensation:
Our Legal Administrator will be responsible for planning and managing the day-to-day operations of the Firm and for implementing Firm policies and procedures under the general guidance and supervision of the Owner. Our Legal Administrator will create or improve all administrative functions in our Firm. We are building a Firm where systems run the business, and people run the systems.
We need someone with the professional experience and maturity to keep the Firm's needs in the forefront and work closely with the Owner and key staff on strategy, policy, problem-solving, and decision-making. The ideal candidate understands that you cannot manage what you do not measure - and can help us figure out how to build and optimize more systems to ensure we can measure and manage the Firm's business operations effectively.
You must be able to show evidence of your prior success with:
- Business process refinement and systems management to ensure profitable operation of the Firm
- Systems management to ensure matters are handled appropriately so that client needs are met, legal ethical requirements are met, and clients receive excellent service
- Employee leadership, performance management, supervision, and human resources
- Management of physical plant
- Management of logistics for supplies, technology, and office equipment
- Understanding and using common financial reports to make decisions (budget variance, PL, cashflow forecast)
- Management of bookkeeper, accountant, and technology systems
- Management of all aspects with the Firm's vendors
- Assist with management of Marketing Director and monitoring the success of all marketing efforts
We need someone with significant hands-on experience managing a team of more than 15 people and a budget of more than $5,000,000. This is not a position for an “Office Manager,” "Paralegal," or an “Administrative Assistant.”
Nothing makes us happier than the expression of relief or gratitude on a client's face at the end of a job well done. The Legal Administrator will play a key role in helping us hire and train staff and implement procedures that maximize client and employee satisfaction. We want to be profitable, too, so that we can help more people. We create careers that help our team pursue their hopes and dreams and we want to help you pursue yours. We care about our team and are dedicated to maintaining a positive and upbeat work environment.
