Hodes Milman, LLP is looking for an experienced paralegal to join our litigation practice. Our case work primarily involves the prosecution of medical malpractice claims against physicians, hospitals, nurses, and other health care professionals whose action or inaction has caused our clients harm.

You will be asked to draft responses to Form Interrogatories, Special Interrogatories (including contention interrogatories), Requests for Production of Documents, and Requests for Admission. Working with clients to obtain information and documents responsive to discovery requests will be an essential task, as will reviewing medical records and other documents. You may also be asked to assist with the preparation of discovery directed at the opposing parties, the preparation of motions, the preparation of trial and arbitration materials, the service of pleadings, the updating of client files, and other litigation support tasks. The ideal candidate will be able to work closely with our firm’s lawyers in effecting an efficient work up of a case file.

Required skills:
1. Strong computer skills, including a proficiency with the Microsoft Office suite of products such as Word, Excel, and Outlook;
2. Experience in preparing discovery responses in compliance with the California Code of Civil Procedure;
3. Experience in preparing pleadings, briefs, motions, and other legal documents for filing, including formatting, proofreading, and creating tables of contents and authorities;
4. Experience in corresponding with and communicating with clients to obtain information relevant to their litigation matters;
5. Proficiency in reviewing and summarizing medical records as part of completing discovery in a litigation matter;
6. Knowledge of court filing requirements, including experience with e-filing in state and federal court;
7. Ability to work with multiple attorneys and other staff members regarding several unique matters.

Required Experience:
1. College degree preferred or paralegal certificate;
2. Must have a minimum of 3-5 years of litigation experience where drafting discovery responses was a primary job responsibility. Experience with plaintiff-side personal injury and medical malpractice matters is a significant plus;
3. Spanish language fluency is a plus.

This is a full time position. In-office work is preferred, but remote work capabilities can be provided. Health, dental, and 401(k) benefits are available. To be considered for this position, please submit your resume to: csimancek@hodesmilman.com
