--- Providing Paralegal/Legal Assistant support at a law firm in Florida to two lawyers with an active litigation caseload.
--- Demonstrating the ability to be a dedicated and valuable member of a legal team for at least 3 to 4 years at the same firm.
--- Doing substantive work on cases that could alternatively be given to a new, young associate lawyer.

You are awesome at:
--- Creating order out of chaos. You LOVE organization, keeping track of key dates, and keeping the right people informed so that we never miss a deadline.

--- Spanish speaking is a plus.
