We are an entrepreneurial criminal immigration law firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an experienced paralegal to join our team and be a total superstar – working directly with the owners to support the team and help our clients.
We want to be known for helping our clients come out of an extremely difficult process feeling as though they are in a better position, and that they had a team behind them that really cared and fought for them. We are growing fast and we need a Paralegal who can hit the ground running.
If these statements appeal to you, then you may be our Superstar:
- You think in terms of outlines, chronologies, and indexes
- You see an opportunity for organization where other people see a mess
- You understand that sometimes it’s OK to leave a message, but sometimes you gotta keep trying until you speak to a person
- You can say your ABCs without singing them (and you know why that matters)
- You smile when you answer the phone
- You are an amazing scheduler with a sickening degree of attention to detail
- You are very good with calendars, email, spreadsheets, word processing, and the internet
- Your middle name is “No Drama”
- You are an awesome juggler of tasks and can change gears quickly
- You do not think scanning and copying are “beneath you”
We love to help people learn and grow. But we don’t have the time for that right now. We need a Paralegal with experience in immigration, civil litigation, and/or personal injury. The ideal candidate will be able to take initiative on work that needs to be done and complete tasks with minimal hand-holding.
This is a full-time job where you are expected to manage a caseload, so you absolutely must be able to work *in the office* for 40 hours per week. During the first 30 days of employment, the pay will be $20.00/hour, with opportunities for an increase after that. There is an opportunity for bonus compensation for those who can demonstrate their profitability.
