Legal Jobs in San Jose
What are your personal goals and ambitions? Do you want to work in a legal department? Would you prefer a courtroom job? Regardless of your needs, there are many legal jobs in San Jose that you may want to consider.

San Jose is the third largest city in California. With just under one million people, the city is expanding with a wide technological job base, earning it the nickname, "Capital of Silicon Valley."

As the economy expands, construction does as well. You may want to consider becoming a construction attorney. You will need to be versed in governmental agency practices, working with them to ensure that permits and licenses are granted in a timely manner. If there are issues, you will be responsible for negotiating a satisfactory resolution. As a construction attorney, you will be tasked with preparing all legal documentation, including contracts, necessary to complete the construction project. This includes all necessary construction permits and licenses that are necessary to complete the job.

An attorney who focuses in government contracts will work with United States government agencies to ensure that all applicable contracts are completed, submitted on time and negotiated to fruition, if necessary. This is a great option in San Jose with so many tech companies that often deal with government entities. Working with government agencies often requires strict timelines and you will need to budget your own time wisely to ensure essential documents are submitted and followed up on in a timely fashion.

If you are not interested in the attorney side of careers, there are plenty of other areas of interest. A court advocate, for example, is a liaison between clients and the courtroom. An advocate works with the client, often in situations related to abuse or assault. As a court advocate, you may be asked to travel to speak with a defendant before a trial, to help seek appropriate social services or simply to support a defendant while waiting to testify in a court case. A court advocate may also work with social workers to help prevent or resolve issues related to substance abuse, damaging relationships or rehabilitation.

Consider these jobs, but keep your options open to many different ideas. You are likely to find some great suggestions looking through San Jose legal jobs.
