Butler Law Firm is Hiring a Paralegal!
Our goal is excellence, at all times and in all things. We handle personal injury cases, and we pride ourselves on superior results and peerless client service. In our five years in business, we’ve earned over one hundred five-star reviews, and we want to keep that up.
We are a small firm devoted to a positive office culture and high-quality work on a limited number of cases. The Butler Law Firm currently has two lawyers, two paralegals, and one Labrador retriever who comes in once or twice a week. You can learn more about our team here. (One of our current paralegals is leaving to pursue a teaching career, which is why we have this job opening). Our office is a pleasant and productive place to work. We like it that way, and so do our clients.
We handle cases the right way. We are not a volume practice. At any given time, we keep only a handful of cases per lawyer. Those cases tend to involve wrongful death or serious injury, and they tend to be more complex than two-party automobile collisions. They may involve product liability, roadway maintenance, medical malpractice, or sexual assault. In every case, we represent the harmed person, the victim, or the victim’s family.
For practices like ours, attention to detail is crucial. For instance, when we respond to discovery requests, we think about each response instead of simply copying and pasting from the last case. When it is time to take a deposition, we don’t just use the same outline we used last time. We want to keep our clients happy and maximize our client’s recovery in every case we handle.
We are pleased to be hiring another full-time paralegal . We want someone who wants to grow with us in the years to come. The person who fills this role must be motivated, smart, personable, and pleasant to be around. The person we hire should be great at legal work, but willing to pitch in in other areas as well, such as (depending on who we hire) maintaining the website, blogging, handling intake calls, ordering office supplies, keeping a calendar, or organizing lunch. We intend to hire the best candidate, whether that person has decades of experience or is just starting out. We want a great person, not just a great resumé.
Our office is located at 10 Lenox Pointe, Atlanta, GA, near the intersection of Georgia 400 and Interstate 85 (see map below). Our staff hours are 8:30am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday. Our new paralegal’s salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience and abilities. Benefits include life insurance and long-term disability insurance. Our employee policy is available here.
If you are interested in joining us, we’d love to speak with you. To apply, download our Paralegal Application (which is not just a recitation of your resumé) here and complete it. Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of the email, include 1-2 sentences that tell us the single most important thing we should know about you. Attach to that email:
- > your resumé,
- > any references (preferred but not required),
- > a short writing sample (which can be something you’ve already written), and
- > your completed Application.
We’ll then get back to you and, if appropriate, schedule an interview. We look forward to hearing from you!
