The Law Office of Lena A. Clark is seeking a detail-oriented go-getter and a problem-solver for a position as a Paralegal for our busy Estate Planning and Probate law firm. We are a small business and looking for a perfect candidate who has a great deal of attention to detail, is able to follow specific instructions, and can figure things out with minimal hand-holding.

  • Draft Estate Planning and other legal documents
  • Work directly with clients to gather/ request missing information
  • Orchestrate signings of Estate Planning documents
  • Prepare Probate Inventories and Accountings

Qualifications

Who are we looking for? Someone who wants to work in the heart of downtown Frederick and sees themselves doing this type of job long-term with an opportunity to grow. At the moment we are not looking for someone hoping to relocate across the country or going to grad school in the next few years. 

We are an Apple-based office, so you will need to know how to navigate and troubleshoot a Mac computer without needing the assistance of others. We use a lot of technology, so it is essential that you can use and learn technology quickly in an independent manner.

You are welcome to apply here but this is how you can immediately stand out from the crowd:

Prepare a cover letter with no more than TWO paragraphs and a closing sentence. In the first paragraph describe your paralegal/other office experience and how technologically savvy you are (especially with Apple products). In the second paragraph, explain your ties to Frederick, and where you see yourself in 5 years. As a closing sentence, please write, “I have read the instructions contained in the job posting and have followed the instructions.”

Email your resume and cover letter in PDF format to admin at lenaclarklegal dot com. The subject line of the email should be your last name (all caps), followed by the position you are applying for in lower case, followed by one word that you would use to describe yourself in all caps (for example: SMITH paralegal AWESOME).
