The Life and Death of a Legal Secretary Here’s my story. Sad but true, sometimes I wish it could have been different. But that’s another life. It started about six weeks ago in a law firm downtown, but for you to completely understand, I need to go back a little. A little over a year ago, I was hired by a very prestigious firm. Which happened to do mainly corporate law, dabbling in a few, shall we say less than ethically correct areas of our judicial system. Like I was saying, this firm was one of the larger and more prominent firms, dealing mainly with the importing and exporting end of the corporate structure. The companies we dealt with made the docks move and stop, literally. I went there with resume in hand fresh out of school wanting to become a part of any firm that would have me. Pushing paper and keeping my nose in the books made me wanting of a more congenial lucrative source of employment. I got the interview through an agency here in the city and was surprised and happy after getting the phone call. After waiting for about 40 minutes a kindly older man called me into his office and had a sit down. We hit it off like I had known him for years. I’d say he was in his fifties, more like my dad than I’d care to mention, and well groomed. He smiled and waited for the usual job interview schpeal to end and waited for my reaction. I liked him from the first. He was kind, yet I could tell that if it came to it, he’d eat who ever sat on the other side of the table for breakfast, and wouldn’t think twice about it. “You know, I have a reputation of going through secretaries.” he said sitting back on his chair. He smiled. Slowly I scanned the room and found it peculiar. But I sat there waiting for his next move. “Oh, I see. Well, aren’t we lucky to find this out before I say yes.” I told him, leaning against the back of the expensive leather chair. I knew what he was thinking before he said it. All through my life I could tell what people were thinking, no matter how hard they tried to hide it. “What makes you think I’ll hire you.” he said putting his hands behind his head. His Armani suit was not reacting well to the movement and he felt the material resist. “I know more than you think.” I smiled. I got up and made my way over to his 32nd story window and looked down. I didn’t like the height, but then again, I didn’t like being stuck in some menial clerk job down at the Department of Justice making 9 dollars an hour and putting up with a lot more than the paycheck could compensate for. “And how is that so?” he asked wondering what trump card I had up my sleeve. The lucky thing is I had a brain. Let’s just say I had more than a full deck. Mine was a stacked deck. I ran my fingers through my hair and looked at him and said, “I am the one who will make you richer than you have ever dreamed. I can handle your books, make your clients feel like they own the world, make you look like someone should saint you for your benevolence towards the city, and make sure that your ‘enemies’ know that they’re meat for the beast when they come up against you.” “Oh and how is that?” he said playing the game. “I have been around a long time little one and what makes you think you can do all this for me?” “I know what it takes to make it.” I told him sitting back down in the chair. “I have an MBA from Columbia in New York, and several other degrees so when I look at those very important legal documents I know what I’m talking about, and a set of legs that will make any legal lackey the opposition dares to send up forget why he came here.
