Legal Assistant (Entry Level)


hank you for your interest in our entry level legal assistant position!

Are you considering law school, but want to view the profession up close before committing to three more years of school and an additional mountain of debt? Do you want to learn about the profession from some of the best? Do you want to find a position where you’ll develop skills and be challenged? If you answered yes to these questions, our firm is the place for you. No prior legal experience is needed — we’ll train you. But because of the resources we’ll devote to your training, we ask that you remain with the firm for a minimum of two years.

We’re a special place to work. The firm abides by one core principle:
Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity.

You’ll interact directly with clients and the firm’s attorneys to deliver gold medal client services. This is a fast-paced position — no two days will be alike. So our ideal candidate will be nimble, collaborative, creative, and reliable, and bring a detailed-oriented approach to professional life — those without these attributes are a better fit for a different position.

This is an non-exempt position eligible to participate in our health insurance (including prescription drug coverage), dental insurance, vision insurance, life insurance, long term disability insurance, and short term disability insurance plans, as well as our 401(k) program with matching benefits managed by Fidelity. Relocation assistance is not available for this position.
