We are a small Plaintiff's PI, WC and SSD firm in business at the same location on Central Avenue for over 30 years with an expanding state-wide practice seeking to fill two immediate openings in Personal Injury and Social Security departments.  Our firm has growing pains with two long-term legal assistants leaving to attend law school in August and two new associates coming into the practice after taking the July Bar Exam.  Our preferred candidates would have some experience (1-2 years,) in either PI (Plaintiff's,) or SSD law.  They would both be self-starters who have excellent verbal and written communication skills, are computer savvy (we are a cloud-based, paperless law firm,) and are punctual and reliable.  Bi-lingual Spanish is preferred but not required.  Starting pay is between $12-14 per hour plus liberal performance based monthly bonuses.  We also offer health and dental benefits, 401(k) and ample paid time off including legal holidays, time off with pay between Christmas and New Years, and, "Early Fridays."  This is an ideal position for a college graduate wishing to pursue a law degree as we have molded and mentored many young lawyers in the past 30 years.  This is a fast-paced, smoke -free working environment.
