Polish Speaking Paralegal

Looking for a full-time energetic and committed paralegal who is very organized and able to multi task.  As most of the clients in my sole practice speak Polish, fluency in the Polish language is required.

You will be responsible for handling all aspects of real estate closings, preparation and follow through of bankruptcy petitions, evictions and divorces, and preparation of estate planning documents.  This is a position with heavy client contact, answering the telephone, and following up with client inquiries.

This is a great opportunity to learn in a very pleasant environment where hard work is rewarded.

Please e-mail a resume with cover letter to Christine R. Piesiecki, Attorney at Law:  padwokat@gmail.com
