The cozy, adaptable environment of the small law firm lends itself to more flexible work schedules among lawyers and staff. Because staff is limited, attorneys and paralegals perform more substantive legal tasks with less supervision than mega-firm counterparts. As a small law firm, our paralegals are given the opportunity to put into practice a mix of skills that include a wide range of skill levels. For example, a litigation paralegal may interview a witness, communicate with clients, train a co-worker on a new database and research a legal issue within the same one-hour block of time. The most successful paralegals are able to think flexibly, prioritize assignments and balance the demands of multiple supervisors and clients. #### Benefits Benefits include health insurance, paid vacation and sick leave, and 401(k). Previous experience as a paralegal or other legal field is preferred
