Litigation Paralegal

Our Ideal Candidate:

We know being a paralegal can be one of the toughest jobs at a law firm. Deadlines, especially litigation deadlines, are real, so we value creating an environment to facilitate collaboration. For this opportunity, we are searching for a person with grit, grace, and perseverance. Details must matter. Following up incessantly (i.e., “nagging”) is valued. Turning over every stone is encouraged. In this role, you can expect your feedback and input to be valued. You have a brain, which is valued in our office just as much as a law degree. We expect you to express your opinions and offer insight as to what you believe is the best course of action. We believe we are stronger together, and that works only if you understand the value of your contributions.
