Paralegals

Most offices and practice groups at the Firm enjoy the support of paralegals. We currently employ over 40 such individuals as well as legal investigators. While the highest number of positions are in our litigation section, the real estate, tax, corporate, employment, environmental and intellectual property groups all include paralegals on their teams. Our compensation is competitive, and includes bonuses based on merit and productivity, as well as the payment of overtime.
