Experienced Paralegal (Workers' Rights)

This is not your typical paralegal position.  For the right candidate, it will be an amazing opportunity.  Are you up to the task?

About you:  Excellent organizational skills.  Detail-oriented.  Flawless English grammar/spelling.  Comfortable with technology and standard office software. Nice. Spanish bilingual is preferred but not required. [Additional details in the application packet.]

About the job:  The work you do will directly contribute to work that helps clients in very real ways.  Positive working environment.  Remote work environment available, with supporting infrastructure. High expectations for quality of work, but high rewards for true value-added.

About the firm:

You would be working primarily for a firm that seeks to recover unpaid/underpaid wages on behalf of employees. This is mostly in federal court.

The firm’s mission is to empower our clients to stand up for themselves and recover the wages they should have been paid in the first place.

The founders believe that:

  • There is a better way to handle conflict.
  • Each client is best suited to determine what he/she wants in order to feel they were treated fairly.
  • We can better serve clients by helping them build the future that they want, instead of imposing “traditional” legal solutions.
  • The members of our team thrive in an environment focused on empowering our clients.
  • And we are hiring.

We are looking for experienced paralegals who would like to work with a team that believes as we do, who want to reduce the attorney-induced drama and needless escalation of conflict and focus instead on finding solutions with and for clients.

The system as practiced in many firms seems designed to wear down the clients, the attorneys, and the staff. There is a better way of doing things, so that the balance, most days, have you feeling awesome about how much you are positively affecting people’s lives. We can't eliminate the tough days ... we're not magicians ... but we are on a mission, and that makes it a lot more fun!

To be a good fit for this role, you should be someone who is looking for an opportunity to focus on helping people navigate the process. You will help them reach the best outcome that is consistent with their values. You are committed, above all, and in everything we do, to an excellent experience for clients. If you're still reading this, and believe this might be a role for you, let me tell you about us. We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Assist with the organization of client meetings, research activities, and witness coordination
  • Draft subpoenas and coordinate with process servers
  • Answer telephone calls and ensure that the case filing system is properly organized and documents are accessible
  • Interview clients to obtain information relevant to their legal matters
  • Use technology to work efficiently, such as e-filing

  • Perform administrative duties to support lawyers in their work

About AndersonDodson, P.C.

Change The World

Our mission is to change the way disputes are resolved.

We empower our clients to stand up to employers who have treated them badly. We talk to our clients empathetically rather than “talking down” to them with a lot of legalese; we provide detailed, clear guidance to them about what’s likely to happen; we help them feel really great about good results gotten together.

We strive to do everything with excellence (ἀρετή in Greek). We work to be lawyers that clients feel great having on their side. We relentlessly work to be better than we were yesterday. We believe that if you do your job with ἀρετή it will reflect well not only on you but on the firm and on our clients and their claims.

We take care of ourselves as human beings. We have a culture that embraces our need to be full human beings, with lives outside of work, and a great team culture while at work. (Heads up: we do discriminate – against jerks.)
