Company Name: The People's Law Firm
The People’s Law Firm has an immediate need for a self-starting, hyper-organized litigation paralegal (or legal assistant with substantial litigation experience). This person will have primary responsibility for management of the Firm’s vibrant personal injury and civil rights litigation practice – from docketing and calendaring to trial work and everything in between (organizing records; drafting discovery and disclosure statements; scheduling, preparing for, and attending depositions; and preparing for and attending trials when necessary). They will be expected to do so with modest administrative support and zero micro-managing.
The optimal candidate will:
• have plaintiff’s and/or defense tort litigation experience, particularly cases involving large powerful entities who are adverse to settlement;
• boast exceptionally strong organizational abilities, and efficiency and productivity habits;
• be intellectually curious, a quick study, willing to ask questions, and unintimidated by new areas of law; and
• feel excited at joining a unique law firm doing unique work and re-thinking everything about how law is practiced.
