Hit the ground running, but don't rush through document preparation. If you don't know the answer, ask. Understand that little mistakes can become catastrophic; which is why you must always review your work before presenting it to your boss. It is your job to make your Attorney look good. Never, ever, ever chance making your Attorney look bad in court because of a mistake you made. Always calendar EVERYTHING! Don't miss a setting notice and keep up with which cases are flagged for trial. Lastly, don't get sideways with a client; that's your Attorneys job, if need be.
