POSITION: McKenzie Scott PC seeks a litigation paralegal with state and federal experience who is interested in joining a dedicated team of justice-seekers.
JOB DESCRIPTION: Our mid-level paralegal will collaborate on civil rights and personal injury cases under the supervision of a more senior litigation paralegal. An ideal candidate will have experience preparing pleadings and filing in state and federal courts; preparing initial drafts of discovery requests, pleadings, and requests/subpoenas for medical records; calendaring discovery deadlines per state and federal court rules; assisting with trial support; and communicating with clients, experts and court personnel. We are a small law firm committed to providing excellent service to our clients and enabling access to justice to traditionally underserved communities. It is essential that all team members work collaboratively to fulfill these goals.
This is primarily a remote position but we come together regularly as a team to improve systems, move cases forward, and brainstorm. If the team is in trial, our litigation paralegals will be supporting in the courtroom, so the ability to travel within California and beyond is essential.
QUALIFICATION AND REQUIREMENTS: Applicants should be paralegals as defined by Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 6450. Two to five years’ experience is preferred but all candidates will be considered.
SALARY AND BENEFITS: McKenzie Scott PC offers a competitive compensation and benefits package including health, dental, and vision plans, and SEPIRA retirement contributions proportionate to salary.
HOW TO APPLY: Please submit your name and information in the fields above and indicate that you are interested in the paralegal position. We will reach out to you with additional information on how to apply!
