Below we explain what we are looking for, what a successful candidate can expect in return from us, and how to apply to join the firm.
What we are looking for: We require strong credentials from a top undergraduate institution as well as demonstrated success in prior employment or extracurricular pursuits. No prior legal experience is necessary, but a desire to learn and excel in a team oriented environment is essential. We require a two-year commitment and a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.6.
Job description: Our legal assistants perform a variety of tasks that ensure the efficient operation of our practice and our success in court. At our firm, attorneys and assistants work in a collaborative environment where everyone plays a role in producing the best work possible. Assistants conduct research and analysis, craft arguments, and create multimedia presentations used in court before judges and juries. The amount and degree of difficulty of the substantive projects assigned to each assistant depend on the assistant’s performance, motivation, and initiative.
After leaving our firm, past legal assistants have gone on to top U.S. law schools (such as Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Pennsylvania), prestigious graduate programs, and positions in various other industries including finance, tech and government.
