06-2015 – 10-2016 Peterson, Logren & Kilbury, PA, St. Paul, MN

I support several attorneys in the Workers’ Compensation Department. There is heavy typing and dictation; preparation of correspondence; backup answering of telephones; heavy faxing and scanning of documents being sent externally to clients; maintenance and follow-up of tasks on files; filing of legal documents with various Court systems, electronic and otherwise. I was instrumental in assuming the responsibility of clean-up of the firm’s voluminous files and archiving of old cases, a task no one wanted to assume. I have created various lists to aid in the retrieval of old files from storage, shortening time to locate closed files. My tasks include the need for confidence in making quick and accurate decisions; working with little or no supervision, and the ability to prioritize workloads with another legal assistant.

08-2012 – 03-2013 United Talent / Pullin Fowler Flanagan, Brown & Poe, Charleston, WV

I worked on temporary assignments as an Administrative Assistant and Legal Assistant. The last assignment lead to full-time employment with the law firm Pullin Fowler Flanagan, Brown & Poe in the capitol city. United Talent can provide excellent scoring from my tests taken there and testimonials from their other clients that I served. The attorney that I supported at PFFB&P can also attest to my competence and skills in the performance of my job there.

Johnny Brown, Partner, Pullin Fowler 304-***-****)

After moving to West Virginia from D.C./Northern Virginia, I soon realized that the economic climate and increase in crime in West Virginia was not as I had hoped. I opted to move back to the beautiful Midwest where employment is steady and crime is lower.

02-2011 – 03-2012 PilieroMazza PLLC, Washington, D.C.

Initially hired to support a Partner in governmental contracting, I also supported the firm’s Senior Associate in Litigation and their Of Counsel in Corporate and Transactional work. My responsibilities involved heavy maintenance of calendars and emails, as well as maintaining the firm’s docketing calendar. I maintained litigation files and reorganization of electronic files to mirror our physical files. In June 2011, my partner left to join another firm and within months, the Senior Associate also left the firm. With impending news of the firm realignment with reassignment of support, I felt my employment future was reaching a natural conclusion there.

Reliance upon email and Outlook calendaring was critical to our success as a team. In addition, I supported four other individuals in a wide variety of secretarial and administrative duties.

I was responsible for compiling background information in preparation of reports to other departments, initiating judgment in scheduling appointments and meetings, trouble-shooting problems, and handling a variety of tasks simultaneously.
