Administrative Assistant duties vary depending on the assigned division; however, each will have daily duties, periodic duties and general duties. The degree of efficiency the employee is able to maintain has a direct bearing on the performance of other personnel assigned to the court or division. Administrative Assistants are expected to perform the usual duties of a legal secretary and filing clerk. These duties include typing of motions, pulling daily dockets, typing of letters, and other secretarial duties the prosecutors and investigator may request.
Basic skills tests are administered to include spelling, grammar, synonyms/antonyms, proof reading, and typing with a minimum of 40 words per minute.
