5) Law Firm Job

Law Firm Job

Wykowski & Associates, a boutique law firm located in San Francisco’s Financial District, is looking for an independent and self-motivated individual to assist us in a part-time capacity with our legal practice. We are a business and tax litigation law firm. We also specialize in the representation of individuals, corporations, and non-profit entities in the nation’s burgeoning cannabis industry. Our principal attorney, Henry Wykowski, is a nationally-recognized authority on issues pertaining to cannabis and has been trial counsel in many of the industry’s leading cases.  We regularly litigate cases in State and Federal Courts.

The ideal applicant should possess strong oral and written communication skills, and have experience with Microsoft Office, Google Apps and cloud storage systems such as DropBox. Experience with QuickBooks and Sage Timeslips is highly desirable, but is not necessary. Duties will include answering phones, maintaining office files, monitoring daily correspondence, communicating with clients, attending to office billing, and assisting attorneys in drafting court briefs, as well as corporate transactional documents. Throughout the semester, the student may have the opportunity to attend court hearings and interact with clients. Depending on interest and ability, you may also be asked to participate in case strategy and implementation. This position is an excellent opportunity for an undergraduate considering law school or working in the broader cannabis business space. Prior assistants have attended top-tier law schools and transitioned into practice with solid lawyering skills gained through their work experience.

We are particularly interested in students in their second or third year who are available to continue through graduation provided we are a good match for each other.  This is a part-time position (10 to 20 hours a week) with the opportunity to move to full-time. Availability on Tuesdays and Thursdays is preferred. Compensation is competitive and based upon experience.

Our office is located in the heart of the Financial District, 2 blocks from the Montgomery Bart Station.
Please send our office a cover letter and resume addressed to Henry G. Wykowski by email: rjv@wykowskilaw.com
