Family Law Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Oakland)

Hart Ginney LLP, a family law firm in downtown Oakland, is looking for a paralegal/legal assistant with prior family law experience to join our growing practice. 

This is a fantastic job working with great people at a highly respected firm. Our firm handles interesting, challenging, and complex family law cases.  We offer competitive compensation, have generous employee benefits (including parking, good health insurance, a 401K plan with employer matching contributions and profit sharing), and a friendly, informal, collaborative work environment. Simply put, this is a great opportunity. You will do high quality work and learn from the Bay Area’s most respected family law attorneys. 

We have a great office culture. We work hard, but we all like each other and take care of each other. Like being part of a “team” and talking case strategy with your colleagues? Chances are we’re doing that right now while walking to Starbucks. Want to develop actual, meaningful friendships with your colleagues? Come join us. We have created a very special work environment here, and we don’t want that to change. If you lack a sense of humor, have a huge ego, can’t roll with the punches, or are delicate and easily offended, you won’t fit in here. But all others, please keep reading!

You must have prior family law experience to be considered for this position. In addition, you must be a good fit for our office culture. Translation – be friendly, be willing to pitch in to help, be smart, be organized, take pride in your work, write well, and be able to handle (and perhaps even welcome) direct honest communication without being overly sensitive. This position has the flexibility for full- or part-time employment, depending on the needs of the firm and employees’ schedule.

If this sounds like the kind of job you want, in an environment that you think you would thrive in, reply to this post and tell us more:

  • Attach a copy of your resume.
  • Include a cover letter that tells us why you think you are a good “fit” for our firm and our culture, given what we’ve told you 

Finalists will be notified by email and will be invited for in-person interviews.
