Legal experience - we prefer candidates with NO or LITTLE experience as we prefer to train our legal assistants, attorneys, and interns to handle matters according to our preferences
First four (4) weeks are without pay. We invest our time and best effort in training you at the risk of you making mistakes. This may sound harsh but the reality is that we will likely spend just as much time correcting your work in the first few weeks as you spend doing it. At the end of the 4 weeks we will hire you depending on the skill level demonstrated and/or acquired by you during your training. If you demonstrate superb skills early on we will not hesitate to hire you at that point. If hired, your pay will be:
Associate attorney: $15 to $25 per hour
Admin Assistant: $10 to $17.50
Intern: $10 to $17.50
