Portland Legal Jobs
When searching for jobs in Portland, consider expanding your search to Portland legal jobs. Legal jobs can cover a wide range of legal departments, skill sets and preferences. We cross paths with the legal world every day, even if we aren't aware of each occurrence. For example, we need legal advice when we are preparing to buy or sell a house or draw up a will.

Portland is a popular city with a lot of waterfront access. Locations such as these have a high tourist population and many businesses with a service focus.

You may want to consider working for a firm focusing on family law. A lawyer specializing in family law encounters a number of family law matters, including divorce, child custody disputes, child abuse and neglect cases, and adoptions.

Exceptional communication skills are a must for this position. Family law matters can be highly emotional and will require a calm demeanor with quality communication skills. Superior communication is necessary between the attorney and clients, court employees and witnesses.

If you have a background in another field, such as a Registered Nurse, there are often consultant positions open. As a legal nurse consultant, you will likely have a nursing degree and general experience or training in the legal field. As part of your duties, you may be required to oversee paralegals who are working with medical records for specialized law practices, such as medical malpractice or personal injury practices.

A legal analyst works with attorneys or other staff members in a law firm to review and analyze documents and other facts with either civil or criminal proceedings. A successful analyst has superior research and analytical skills, impeccable writing and critical thinking and very good interview skills. A law firm may require a legal analyst to hold a paralegal degree, associate's degree or a Bachelor of Science degree, but legal experience can often be substituted for education.

When searching for legal jobs in Portland, consider your job skills, your own personal goals and your education level. The legal world is always changing, and you might just find the perfect job for your needs.
