Victoria Ring began her legal career in 1977 as a legal typist. Back in those days, law firms sought out exceptional typists to type documents. (The job role as a paralegal did not exist at that time.) Since Victoria graduated from high school with a typing speed of 90 words per minute, she worked for many law firms as a “floater” typist. She choose to work in this capacity so she could be exposed to all areas of law as well as trying her hand at various types of careers to determine what she enjoyed the most.
