Work Traits of a Successful Legal Secretary

By Sally Kane

So you’ve mastered the core skills of a legal secretary. How do you set yourself apart as an in-demand secretarial professional in the legal field? The answer is learning how to be a good legal secretary by going above and beyond to master these seven important work traits.

1. Be Reliable
 A legal secretary is the attorney’s right-hand person, so reliability is a crucial work trait that will ensure success. This goes beyond showing up promptly. You might occasionally find yourself called upon to stay at your desk long after other offices have closed for the day. Your attorney may have to appear in court first thing in the morning — with an orderly file so he can put his hands on whatever he needs at trial without rummaging.
