About Nevin Law Firm, A Professional Law Corporation
Thinking about being a trial lawyer?  This law firm is a place to get a great view of 
what jury trials look like, how they are prepared, by people with decades of experience 
in civil trials.  We are a small, often remote litigation firm where teams work 
together litigate diverse cases, the run the gamut from intellectual property to 
catastrophic personal injury cases.  There are few dispute subject matters that we 
will not litigate or try because once one learns the process of trial by jury, 
it is fundamentally transferable to nearly any type of civil trial. If you've 
always wanted to be an actor/actress who has to make split second decisions 
in a public battle, one who "plays chess" on multiple boards,  where scholarship,  
persuasive written and verbal argument can change lives, this is a great and 
congenial place to work!

To apply for the job, send your resume and cover letter to (staff@nevinlawfirm.com) 
with "Administrative Assistant application" in the subject line. We do not have 
a deadline for hiring but we are looking to fill the position ASAP.
