Solan Park & Robello

Our downtown San Francisco law firm is seeking a highly motivated Paralegal with excellent skills to become a part of our growing team! The ideal candidate will be available for full-time work. We help clients care for their loved ones by planning for death, disability, and taxes. Our practice areas are related, yet different enough to be interesting: estate planning, estate administration, probate and trust administration, conservatorships, and civil litigation. We forge long-lasting relationships with clients. We value employees who enjoy rewarding relationships with clients, and who know how to work hard and have fun.

Paralegals perform substantive billable legal work under the direction of one or more attorneys in the office. A Paralegal’s goal is to relieve the attorney(s) she works for of a portion of the tasks involved in the practice of law, so the attorneys can focus on more substantive and valuable tasks. This paralegal position will be currently remote until transitioning into a full-time in-office position as the Covid restrictions start to relax.

A Paralegal provides billable service to clients at a lower billable rate than an attorney, providing a benefit to the clients of the firm.
