The Law Offices of Joshua L. Goldstein, P.C., Boston’s leading immigration law firm, is seeking a full-time paralegal.
Although a large portion of the job involves administrative responsibilities (e.g., making copies, answering the phone, scheduling appointments, billing clients, delivering documents to court), our paralegals receive significant client contact and thorough training in immigration law.
Our ideal candidate would be a highly-organized person with excellent people skills and strong writing abilities. We would prefer someone with experience working in an office. Computer skills are essential as our Mac-based office uses various software and online applications for legal research and administrative purposes. To demonstrate your attention to detail, please list the name of your favorite kind of cake in the subject line of your email (we won’t judge you!). Legal experience and knowledge of immigration law aren’t required–we’ll train you. Foreign language skills (especially Spanish and Portuguese) would be helpful but certainly aren’t required.
Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in international, human rights and immigration issues. Recent liberal arts grads are encouraged to apply. A minimum 2-year commitment is expected, with a start date in early June 2016. This position would be ideal for someone seeking meaningful legal experience before possibly going to law school, and all of our paralegals have done just that.
The hours are 8:30 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday. We offer a competitive hourly salary and benefits such as health insurance and vacation time.
