The Zolman Law Office is expanding their legal team, and is now accepting resumes from qualified candidates in order to fill an opening for a paralegal position. They began accepting resumes last month on October 24 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants may submit their resumes to the office via mail or to the email address provided on the company website.
As family law continues to evolve in order to adapt to the dynamics of modern American family units, the Zolman Law Office prefers that candidates have experience primarily in family law practices, as well as some criminal law. In addition, candidates should feel comfortable working both independently and in team settings, as well as multitasking in a fast-paced environment.
“We’re looking for someone that’s team oriented and ready to help people through some of the most trying times of their life, " said Carla Zolman, owner of the Zolman Law Office.
Paralegals play an integral role in any law office, as they execute a number of administrative and supportive tasks in order to assist the lawyers at the firm. Duties include client intake, which requires paralegals to have an understanding and empathetic demeanor as they may be working with emotionally distraught clients. Additional tasks may include petition preparation, motion practice, maintaining and organizing client files, drafting legal documents, conducting research, and extensive client communication.
While technological advances have rendered many positions obsolete, paralegals and legal assistants enjoy a high level of job security and satisfaction. According to the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of paralegals is expected to grow 17% between 2012 and 2022, which is higher than the average for all other occupations.
