Amazing Opportunity for the Right Person

If you&rsquo;re not afraid of hard work and love challenges and having fun at work, we could be a good fit for you.
You will be responsible for drafting pleadings, discovery demands and responses, scheduling depositions and obtaining medical records. Excellent keyboarding and computer skills are an absolute must! Prior experience in a plaintiffs&rsquo; personal injury and/or medical malpractice law firm in New York State is preferred.
We hire motivated people, set high expectations, and give our people room to be remarkable. We have a beautiful office in historic uptown Kingston and a culture that is stimulating and unique. You will have massive amounts of responsibility and freedom, and you will be rewarded for being a human, not a cog in a machine.
Do You Like Having Fun at Work?
You will get challenges, responsibility, and the best money and benefits in the market. We have an exciting and fun workplace, and you will get to play an important role in improving the lives of severely disabled people. We offer plenty of opportunity for your professional and personal development.

Do You Want to be Part of Something Special?
We are a team of people who love to read books, listen to podcasts, and ask ten times more questions than we give answers. We believe in building systems and policies for our work so we don&rsquo;t have to do the same task over and over again. Getting the work done isn&rsquo;t the goal&mdash;getting the system built that gets the work done is.
It&rsquo;s not just about our law firm. It&rsquo;s about you. We take care of each other and are back to back in the bunker, willing to take shots for each other.
We want you to set new dreams and surpass them. We want you to become the best version of yourself!
