EXPERIENCED LEGAL ASSISTANT/PARALEGAL

ANONYMOUS - Lakeland, FL

Full-time

Experienced, professional legal admin/paralegal who is able and willing to take on a leadership role in this growing law firm. Ideal candidate is someone who is going to commit to showing up every day, on time, prepared to work. This position is a front-line position that requires flexibility and a multi-tasking approach, since it involves not only interacting with people, such as conducting intake interviews, communicating with Judges/JAs, opposing counsel, and clients, but also substantive legal work like drafting simple motions, preparing court filings, and such. The position also requires knowledge and study of both the federal and Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, local rules of courts, and judges’ preferences.

Importantly, this position requires, first and foremost, the ability to work independently and to be resourceful in getting things done.
