Legal Case Management
In order for a case to progress there are often deadlines that need to be met, items that need to be obtained from the client, communication with the client and co-counsel, and a myriad of other items that attorneys need help staying on top of. This responsibility is often shared with legal assistants, who are typically detail and task oriented. By taking a team approach, the likelihood that something “falls through the cracks” is reduced significantly.
Many attorneys will admit that so much of their attention is on the “big picture” that they find it difficult to also manage the endless other details that make up a case. This is where a properly trained legal assistant truly shines. At the Legal Staff School, legal assistants and clerks are trained to know the most effective strategies for keeping a case on track.
