Elizabeth Morgan & Associates, a small, boutique law firm is currently accepting applications for an Executive Assistant in its Austin office.

About:

We are a rapidly growing boutique law firm in Austin, Texas and are looking for a well-organized Executive Assistant to support our founder. As a firm, we exist in a very unique niche—we have big law/big accounting firm clients, but we operate like a small firm. Because our practice is small and very close knit, we are looking for someone who will fit into our culture. Our clients are mostly ultra-high net worth, and our work involves structuring the personal, estate, tax, and business aspects of their lives. Our practice is planning, problem solving, and reporting focused.

This position requires someone who can master new skills quickly and is clear, concise, and professional in their communications. The position also requires someone who is incredibly organized, calm under stress, and willing to support Ms. Morgan with a positive attitude.

Persons who thrive at our firm are those who love detail-orientated problem solving, organizing, and facing new challenges each day. They must also be loyal, discrete, punctual, and professional.

  • Maintain firm responsiveness to client needs, including facilitating preparation for client meetings, drafting follow-up correspondence, and assisting with new client onboarding.
  • Develop relationships with the clients and field calls on Ms. Morgan’s behalf.
  • Assist with electronic and paper filing.

Requirements:

  • Valid authorization to work in the U.S.
  • Ability to relocate to Austin, Texas. 
  • Exceptional knowledge of Microsoft Office, particularly Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
  • Excellent time management and project management skills.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.
  • Strong organizational skills and ability to multitask.
