CLIENT CONCIERGE

We have an immediate opening for a Rock Star Client Concierge to join our team.

We want to assure you – this is a real position at a real company that really needs a rock star on our team. We are looking for a Client Concierge for our Murrieta, CA office. This important position involves administrative duties related to reception, customer service, client intake, client retention, management of paper and electronic files, and direct support of our entire team.  Most importantly it is an opportunity to be our ambassador of first impressions.

We are not your typical small family law firm. Our entrepreneurial law firm is poised for aggressive growth, and we’re looking for a Client Concierge who can hit the ground running to give callers and visitors an outstanding customer service experience.

Our Client Concierge will build relationships with people who contact our firm looking for help with a legal or personal crisis. Our clients are in a place of vulnerability. Sometimes they’re scared, sometimes they’re angry and they’re almost always stressed.  Success in this position requires that you display a combination of being calm under pressure, empathy, respect, and maturity. You will play an integral role in creating memorable experiences for clients and everyone else who contacts our firm.

Ideally, you will have experience as a Receptionist, Secretary or Legal Assistant in a law firm, but we are willing to train the right Administrative Assistant, Secretary or service-minded office professional.   Your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are also extremely important considerations. You must have positive energy, adaptable to change and not easily offended.

  • You are eager to learn new tasks and computer systems
  • You know your ABC’s without singing (and know why that’s important)

  • You know what happens in the office, stays in the office

SENIOR ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY

If you are a Family Law Attorney with 5-7 years’ experience ready to join a rapidly-growing firm with a positive team culture and opportunities for personal, professional and financial growth, then we’d love to hear from you! Our Family Law firm is currently accepting applications for a Senior Associate Attorney. We are ready to hire as soon as we find the right candidate.

What you should know about us before you apply. We are not your typical small law firm! Our founding and managing attorneys are entrepreneurs who are passionate about helping their clients keep what matters to them most – their children and their money. We have our sights set on being the “go-to law firm for divorce” in Riverside County, so you need to be ready to hit the ground running to serve our clients with outstanding representation.

This will probably be the most honest and most detailed job posting you will ever read. That’s because we want to be very up-front about our expectations about the job and our ideal candidate. If you are up for a job that is as rewarding as it is demanding, please continue reading the rest of this ad. If you are up to the challenge, we look forward to seeing your resume’ and cover letter.

If the following describes you, then YOU may be a great fit for our team:

We need people who are not afraid of computers, technology, or learning new things that will make their jobs easier. If you aren’t confident in your tech skills and ability to learn, you are not the right person for this job. You MUST be competent and proficient in the use of Word, Outlook, and X-Spouse at a minimum. You MUST be able to navigate the web like Magellan. You must be able to handle working with several different databases of information. If you are familiar with legal case management software and CRM programs, that is a plus.

If you lose stuff, are not organized, or get easily distracted, please don’t apply.

We are fully invested in policies and procedures and systems. We appreciate and nurture creativity and innovation, and we expect you to follow the rules. We also expect your input in creating and improving our systems to best serve our clients.  If you don’t think that’s possible, please don’t apply.

If, while you have been reading this, you were distracted by the buzz of your cellphone or had to check a Facebook alert, this might not be the job for you.

If you think showing up for work 10 minutes late is no big deal, or if you need take more than 2 coffee, smoke, or cell phone breaks during the work day, this job is not for you. If you want to spend time Monday through Friday surfing the internet, Facebooking, or chatting on the phone and still expect to be paid, this is not the job for you.

You must be an optimistic, positive person. Our office does not do well with toxic people or drama queens, gossipers, or victims. You will not fit in here if you even think that you may fit into one of those categories of negative people.

  • Independent
  • Calm Under Pressure

    • Short Cause
    • Long Cause/Evidentiary Hearings
    • Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
    • Mandatory Settlement Conference
    • Sit second chair in Trials, as needed
    • Trials, as needed

We are growing, so you may be called upon to wear many hats. We need someone who doesn’t think scanning their own documents on occasion is beneath them. We are a team and we all pitch in to get things done.

Job Requirements:

  • The Senior Associate Attorney must have graduated from an ABA or California accredited law school and be admitted to the State Bar of California.  The Senior Associate Attorney must also not have any discipline record with any State Bar.
