Thanks to the reader who forwarded this job ad, which states: "this is only a job for someone who can basically work at a personal assistant's rate."
I am a corporate lawyer who has a personal litigation matter that I would like to handle myself. However, being busy and without litigation experience, I would like to get some help from someone who can do factual research, a little legal research, FOIA requests, review of documents, first drafts of basic legal documents (I'm sure I'll edit it to death, so I don't need a brilliant writer, but I do need someone detailed oriented to help me with the process and to make sure I'm using all the right forms), maybe join a deposition and help preparing questions, and so on. All around help. Rockland county experience a plus, but anyone who thinks that's irrelevant because they can figure out local practice is welcome. Because this is a personal legal matter that I couldn't afford to pursue at normal outside lawyer rates, this is only a job for someone who can basically work at a personal assistant's rate. I figure this will drag on for months and that we'll have 5, 10 or 20 hrs/week of work to do on average (and a lot more if we get a big discovery request through), but I really haven't been through this before so am not sure.
