Bryan Schwartz Law is looking for a Paralegal/Legal Assistant!

One of the top plaintiff-side employment law firms in California, Bryan Schwartz Law has received national recognition for its advocacy on behalf of workers in discrimination, harassment, reasonable accommodation, whistleblower and wage/hour, individual and class action matters. Our paralegals work closely alongside attorneys and, as appropriate, take on important litigation tasks, such as drafting declarations and crafting strategies for depositions. Previous law firm experience and/or a stated interest in future work as a lawyer are not requirements for this position; applicants must, however, be interested in social justice and civil rights, and should be prepared to "roll with the punches'' of working in a fast-paced field.

We are a laid-back, collegial workplace that places an impetus on camaraderie and community. Diversity is highly valued. An appreciation of good food and wine is appreciated, but not required!

In addition to the job duties outlined below, our paralegals are encouraged to take on long-term projects in areas of the firm's work that are of particular interest to them. Past examples of these projects include designing class member outreach websites for our cases and integrating live analytics into our system for managing potential clients. Please note that the following lists are not meant to be exhaustive - each new case and client brings along new challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities!

Job duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Conducting intakes with potential clients
  • Investigative research into potential and active cases
  • Drafting, filing, and serving legal documents
  • Maintaining general contact and communications with clients, class members, counsel, etc.
  • Calendaring and managing case deadlines
  • Scheduling court reporters, depositions, mediations, etc.
  • Creating necessary materials for hearings, mediations, and other court appearances
  • Summarizing depositions, interrogatories, and testimony
  • Discovery/document review
  • General office and receptionist duties (as necessary)

*

Requirements:

  • Four-year college degree
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Detail-oriented
  • Multitasking
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving capabilities
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office and Google applications
  • Bilingual not required but a plus!
