From the President

Hello!

We have included articles this month which cover several technical approaches to making your life simpler as a legal secretary or legal office manager.

Also, here is an article from our blog on “electronic” deposition exhibits.  This is a concept (and a service we currently provide) that you can share with your attorneys.

Have a great start of summer!

Best,
Sheila

Proud to be a Legal Secretary

By Carol Ann Wilson

A voice on the telephone recently asked me, “Are you his secretary, or do you prefer to be called his administrative assistant?”  I told him, “I am his secretary and very proud of it.”  You could hear the relief in his voice as he replied, “Thank goodness.  I can deal with a real person the one who really runs things, and I don’t have to deal with a prima donna who takes offense at the least little thing!”  Now, I’m serious.  This really happened.  I think he voiced a common feeling because people know that a secretary, especially a legal secretary, is close to the boss, can be trusted with information, and will handle all matters correctly.   (But we know who really runs things, and it’s not the secretary.)
