Importance of Support Staff
The success of Hite, Fanning & Honeyman is dependent on the success and quality of both our attorneys and our professional staff.
Legal assistants are responsible for assisting lawyers in a wide variety of tasks. Some of their duties include such things as preparing and managing documents, interviewing witnesses, researching, investigating, preparing files, meeting with clients to obtain information and preparing for and attending trials with lawyers.
Legal secretaries provide additional support roles for our attorneys. Legal secretaries are responsible for handling telephone calls, opening and sorting mail, filing and typing. In addition, they transcribe dictation, calendar, check conflicts, make travel arrangements, set up conference rooms for meetings and other duties as assigned.
