Description

We are looking for an experienced divorce and family law paralegal who has a passion for helping families navigate divorce and custody disputes. The ideal candidate knows their way around the Texas Family Law Practice Manual, an I&A spreadsheet, and fielding escalated client calls, sure – they also understand that families benefit when our team can craft property deals and parenting arrangements outside of the courtroom. The right candidate believes that a legal team who educates and empowers clients to make smart, thoughtful, goal-focused decisions in divorce and custody litigation is both our privilege and our responsibility.

We’re looking for an experienced paralegal who can hit the ground running alongside our stellar team to give our clients outstanding service and support from initial strategy meeting to post-judgment client care. The right person’s technical skills and client management finesse are coupled with empathy, practicality, and the ability to build meaningful relationships with clients.

This position is not an entry-level job and requires experience handling highly contested divorce and family law matters. You’ll need a minimum of 3 solid years in family law litigation.  Salary is commensurate with skill and experience. We have all the employer bells and whistles – health, dental, vision, great PTO, a 401(k), incentive-based compensation plan, CLEs, AFLAC policies, tons of professional development – and more great benefits are added all the time.

Our team at HBLF is comprised of top-notch professionals in each and every position – the sort you’d trust with your children, your money, or your business.  We’ve diligently focused on nurturing the HBLF culture and protect it fiercely.  You’ll love joining this team.

If this exciting opportunity appeals to you, we look forward to reviewing your resume and cover letter.

Responsibilities

  • We are looking for an experienced family law paralegal who can support the team by contributing to the development of the case strategy and where to find the rules of procedure to back up that case strategy
  • We need a paralegal who is technically skilled in all things property and custody who also knows how to project confidence and competence in highly contested family law cases
  • The right person will refer to themselves as a “dealmaker” when helping the team support families in crafting creative solutions to their property and custody disputes outside of the courtroom
  • Our ideal paralegal knows the ins and outs of property division, custody mods, parenting plans, the TFC, and the TRCP
  • The right person will be a pro and help clients think through whether they really want to spend $500 to fight with the ex-factor over $50 worth of airline miles
  • If the cynical, burned-out, grumpy paralegals you know get on your nerves, you’re probably our people
  • If the concept “we do serious work but don’t take ourselves too seriously” resonates with you, you might be our next team member
  • Technical skills and experience will get you in the door with us – your personality, character, intelligence, integrity, and plays-nice-with-others attitude are what will get you the job
  • High-maintenance, humorless, self-entitled, or self-important individuals “can’t sit with us”
  • We’re a fast-growing firm – if change, opportunity, and forward momentum excite you, you’ll love it here

Qualifications

  • Must have a minimum of 3 years of experience in taking ownership of a client’s contested family law case – discovery, pleadings, motions; support of collaboration and mediation; prepping attorneys and clients for pretrial hearings, motion hearings, and trials

Compensation
