Title : Real Estate Paralegal Or Project Assistant

Location : California - Costa Mesa
Refer to Job # OQHD701905

This is one of the largest firms in the State of California. We met a hiring authority of this firm for lunch recently, and because this individual did not know us, we were seated at the table next to them. We did not talk to them for over an hour of waiting time, until we discovered that the hostess had forgotten to seat us together, and had seated us a table apart. Needless to say, we both got a good laugh out of that. This firm is very strong in most of its practice areas, including litigation, labor and banking work. Some of the more distinguished litigators in the State of California call this firm their home. The management of this firm is also awfully good and has managed to stay small despite the proliferation of massive management committees at other large law firms. Associates at this firm also seem to fraternize together quite well. One recently held a "keg party" at his home for other associates and there was a large and enthusiastic turnout. This is a real quality of life law firm, and the people here seem to enjoy their lives both at and outside of work. Not surprisingly, a firm of this caliber is able to attract top attorneys of all backgrounds and has managed to remain fairly selective in its hiring. We also like the diversity of this firm and its people. Finally, we think the associates working here tend to be quite "chatty," and the partners even seem this way too. We like chatting because we talk on the phone for a living so this firm gets thumbs up from us. This is the ideal spot for bright, ambitious attorneys with solid work experience and outstanding academic achievements.
