Legal Receptionist Resume Example

Very often the first point of contact for clients who call or visit the office, legal receptionists play an important role in attorney-client communications, new business development, and client relations. Additionally, your administrative support helps keep the office efficient and attorneys and legal assistants focused on billable client work. Your resume is a chance to showcase your experience in making this a reality at the firms where you’ve worked. These competencies need to be expressed through the accomplishments you spell out in the experiences section of your resume. Your customer service skillsets need to be conveyed in the highlights and experience sections of the resume. See our legal receptionist resume example for more ideas.
