Growing Law Firm Is Hiring an All-Star Litigation Paralegal - 5-7 years of experience

 Our boutique firm is growing rapidly and we’re looking for a Litigation Paralegal who can hit the ground running to provide outstanding representation to our clients and support for our attorneys. We are looking for a Paralegal with strong litigation experience who has the “professional chops” to join our plaintiff litigation firm that is solely dedicated to assisting policyholders with their property damage insurance claims.

 Our ideal candidate has full-scale legal support experience and extensive knowledge of the work necessary at every phase of litigation. This role requires that you have experience taking initiative on litigation matters, the experience necessary to handle a heavy caseload, and the trial experience necessary to ensure our clients receive outstanding legal representation and the best outcomes for their legal matters.

Responsibilities

This important position involves direct attorney support. The basic duties of the position are:

  • Review, organize and summarize reports and other case materials
  • Prepare routine or complex legal documents for review by attorneys
  • Draft pleadings, subpoenas, discovery requests and responses, correspondence, and other legal documents
  • Pre-trial investigations, trial preparation, including assistance with preparation of witnesses for deposition and/or trial
  • Prepare deposition and trial binders
  • Prepare exhibits and other demonstrative evidence for use at trial
  • Provide litigation support at trial

This is a full-time, key position in the Firm, so you MUST be available to work 40 hours per week. The requirements for this position are as follows:

  • You must be a Florida Registered Paralegal or possess a certification as a trained Paralegal or have completed a course of study offered by a college or university especially for Paralegals
  • 5 to 7 years of experience as a Paralegal is required
  • Trial and first-party property damage litigation experience is preferred
  • You will be working on many tasks and cases concurrently, over long periods of time. We expect you to keep track of key dates, keep the right people informed, and prioritize your time so that we never miss a deadline
  • You embrace technology and have strong practical experience with cloud-based platforms for case management, document management, calendars, e-mail, spreadsheets, and word processing
  • You have extensive practical experience with common office applications (Word, Outlook, Clio Manage, Dropbox, etc.)
  • You must have excellent spelling and grammar
  • You have a penchant for accuracy and attention to detail and will work tirelessly to avoid mistakes that can cost our clients (and us) dearly
  • You MUST be a positive person. If your middle name is “Drama,” you will not be successful here
  • You should treat a client, case, or task at 4:30 pm on Friday with the same care and compassion as if it were Monday morning at 9:00 am
