Legal Secretaries

The Legal Secretarial duties require considerable knowledge of office, secretarial and administrative practices and procedures. Legal Secretaries perform tasks of an administrative nature in support of a Judge, Magistrate, or other court official. They are directly assigned to a Magistrate in a legal secretary/assistant capacity. Secretaries process court orders, reports, forms, correspondence, and decisions by the Judges and Magistrates. They receive, screen and refer telephone calls from the public and attorneys.
