Qualified candidates will have a college degree or paralegal certificate (or an equivalent combination of education and experience) and possess a minimum of three years’ experience as a Trusts and Estates paralegal.

This includes the ability to independently work with clients to obtain the information to complete all required forms, effectively manage and complete all probate and other court filings, and prepare federal and/or state gift and estate tax returns. Experience with drafting estate planning documents, real estate closing documents and property transfer tax returns, and other practice related documents is a plus. A working knowledge of Word, Excel and Outlook is required, and experience with Vermont and New Hampshire’s online court filing system is preferred. The ideal candidate will be skillful in connecting with clients during difficult times, work collaboratively with legal professionals, and possess strong communication, problem-solving and analytical skills. Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC - DRM serves a wide range of local, regional, national, and international clients. Our lawyers have worked at some of the largest firms, boutiques, and corporations in the U.S., and are now at DRM because they have found they can continue to have sophisticated practices while enjoying the many benefits of living in the New Hampshire-Vermont region. DRM is committed to investing in the professional growth and development of our attorneys and legal professionals. We offer excellent mentorship and training, as well as leading technology, competitive salary, and a comprehensive benefits package, including industry-leading paid parental leave and two generous retirement plans.

"Open environment but restrictive advancement path"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

A lot of work is needed to manage a suitable work life balance. Management should promote work-life balance and should treat everyone fairly instead of playing favoritism.

Pros : The firm has very open team environment and great work life balance. The firm has good and friendly environment considering its small to medium size. I really like the knowledge base and experience of some of the attorneys here.
Cons : The worst part is restrictive advancement path for new attorneys and small unbalanced team structure. I have also spent here long frustrated hours without any direction or definition from upper management.
