Position: Receptionist / Concierge

Location: Fulton, MD 20759

At McCabe Russell we work with clients in family law and divorce matters. We have built our reputation as skilled negotiators and litigators by offering counsel designed to eliminate any uncertainty our clients may have. We are experienced family law and divorce attorneys serving families in Howard, Montgomery, and the surrounding counties. We assess our clients’ levels of preparedness and their goals, help them prioritize their needs, and offer them a path towards the best possible outcome.

Our growing firm is looking for an excellent Receptionist/Concierge to join our team. Because our Receptionist/Concierge is the initial point of impression to all, this job requires impeccable people and phone skills, flawless grammar skills, and an ability to meet the needs of our callers, clients, and guests both on the phone and during their visits to our office.

The ideal candidate strives for excellence in every facet of their work life. The candidate must enjoy helping people, be able to work both independently and as part of a team, be organized, and be proactive. Previous employment experience in a law firm is helpful, but not required. (For instance, we have found that candidates with employment experience in the service industry often make good candidates for our position.) This is a multi-tasking position.
