We are Hiring a Paralegal

Our goal is excellence.  We handle a small number of high-value personal injury and wrongful death cases and we pride ourselves on superior results and top-notch client service.  We’ve earned over two hundred and fifty five-star reviews, and we want to keep that up.  We want to talk with our clients often, keep them happy, and maximize their recovery in every case that we handle.

Here what we offer.  The position is primarily remote.  We pay competitive salaries and will give you at least a 10% raise over your current salary.  We offer good health insurance, dental and vision insurance, life and disability insurance, and twice-annual performance-based bonuses.  Occasional in-person work will be required for trials or other court proceedings, and some office time may be a good idea in the early stages of your work with us.

Butler Kahn currently has five lawyers, three paralegals, and one Labrador retriever who comes in occasionally.  You can learn more about our team here.  We are a small firm devoted to a positive office culture and high-quality work on a limited number of cases.  Our main office is at 10 Lenox Pointe in Atlanta.  We invite you to take a virtual tour of our office, including the upstairs and the downstairs.  Our staff hours are 8:30am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.  Our employee policy is available here.

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 are often more complex than two-party automobile collisions.  They may involve product liability, roadway maintenance, fraud, or sexual assault.  In every case, we represent the harmed person or their 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 believe in making the world a better place.  To that end, our firm makes sizable donationsoffers a scholarship, and has believes in community service.

We are hiring a full-time paralegal to grow with us in the years to come.  The person who fills this role should be motivated, smart, 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 and helping with other needs that arise.  We want to hire the best person, not just the best resumé.

We are a hardworking firm.  We believe that this position presents a great opportunity for the right person, but that person needs to have a strong work ethic and take pride in his or her professional life.  It is rare for us to ask a paralegal to stay late or work on a weekend, but that does happen occasionally.    We customarily invite the firm’s paralegals to attend trials, hearings, and some depositions.
