Myers Law is Hiring Intake Specialist-Law Clerk

While many businesses and even law firms are contracting their personnel and staff, laying off people or furloughing them, Myers Law is hiring.  We have had a rapid increase and influx of consumers contacting our office for help with bad businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are also engaged in some large class action matters and industry-changing litigation.  We are looking to hire a new law clerk who’s job will focus on client intake and communication, and will also involve legal drafting, research, and outreach / marketing.

This position is critical to our mission of making big change for Ohio consumers–on individual cases, class actions, and through new consumer protections.  Candidates must be interested in helping every-day consumers fight against bad businesses. Candidates must be interested in fighting against unfair, deceptive, and unconscionable business conduct. For a description of the work that we do, and clients that we assist, check out our website.

Please note:  if you applied for a position with Myers Law through Indeed.com in the past calendar year, it was not a position with us, nor was it our posting.  It was a scam posting from someone else trying to take money from job seekers.  You should NEVER pay money to someone as part of any job seeking or application process, and you should always look up the company and its staff first to see if the people hiring even work at the company.

This position requires task-oriented team members who have excellent organizational skills, are detail oriented, are able to solve problems and have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, and experience scheduling with Clio and/or Google Calendar.  Email and technological proficiency (laptop use, Microsoft Office software use, webmail, social media use, and ability to learn new programs, systems, and other software) is a must.  Reliable transportation is also a must. Candidates must be self-drive and be able to work from home, as this position is mostly a remote working position due to the current pandemic. That will change at some point in the future to working from the office, but for now, we are almost entirely working remotely.

If you are interested in applying this position, please submit an application via email to Info@MyersLawLLC.com.  The Subject line must be “Law Clerk Application for Myers Law” and the email must contain two paragraphs: one about why you are interested in working at Myers Law or fighting for consumers, and the second one stating whether you are looking to work part-time or full-time and when you could start.  If you write for a blog currently or did so in the past, please feel free to include in the second paragraph or a third paragraph a link to that blog.  You must attach the following documents to that email:

  1. Your resume;
  2. A writing sample of a Complaint or dispositive motion brief that you drafted (some assistance from professors on editing is permissible), preferably a brief for a motion to dismiss or summary judgment motion (without exhibits);
  3. A brief list of the courses you have taken in law school, if any.

LAW CLERK

Either a current student in a law school or a graduate of a law school.

We are looking for a law clerk who can assist the office with reviewing client documents, communicating with current clients about scheduling and other litigation-related events and needs from them, and the initial investigation, complaint drafting, and discovery process.  This is an hourly position that reports to Dan Myers and the Office Manager, with hourly pay beginning at $12 per hour or higher, based on experience and ability.  Part-time law clerks would be expected to work 20 or more hours per week, and be full-time in the summer months.  A full-time law clerk would be expected to work 40 hours per week.  Those hired would work mostly remotely, with potential for 1-2 in-office working days, with a return to the office when it is safe and advisable based on the current health crisis.  Some light, local travel could be involved to various building departments, courts, or occasional business networking events.

There are other benefits, such as a Simple-IRA with matching after payment and length of employment criteria are met, and reimbursement of certain profession-related expenses.

This position will involve a large amount of telephonic client interaction and coordination, as well as some writing and preparation of discovery and pre-suit related communications and letters, as well as subpoenas and other discovery-related communications.  Our office uses Clio for practice management, and the candidate should have experience using Clio efficiently.  Procedures are in place for certain tasks, and candidates should be able to follow and perform those tasks according to the procedures in place.  If no procedure is in place, candidates should be able to assist in creating a written procedure for different tasks.  Duties may vary from time to time.

For law clerks, there is no guarantee, but there is a possibility, of future employment as an associate attorney with Myers Law, LLC upon successful work as a law clerk, and passage of the bar exam, based on the needs of the practice at the time.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please email Alise at Info@MyersLawLLC.com as outlined at the top of this page.
