A South Carolina personal injury firm with multiple South Carolina offices is looking for an Attorney to handle South Carolina personal injury cases. The attorney will work with a team of Paralegals and Legal Assistants but needs to be able to work and function independently to drive the success of a case. Most importantly, the person we hire will be tech-savvy, highly organized, detail-oriented, work well without direct supervision, and enjoy a fast-paced work environment. This position would be remote but will be required to report to any of our locations in South Carolina for occasional meetings.
Subject to Firm and client needs, this position would not generally require the applicant to work from a physical HawkLaw office location. We are a “distributed” workforce, so the daily duties that would ordinarily be performed in a physical office may, if the attorney wishes, be undertaken from home, although the attorney may work from an office location if he or she prefers.
What you would do:
Treat every client like family.
Maximize the value of personal injury cases.
Skillfully negotiate with insurance companies.
Treat your team members with the highest degree of respect.
Move cases expediently from beginning to end.
Attend Approved Legal conferences to obtain necessary CLEs each year.
Licensed in South Carolina State and, preferably, Federal Court
Have Rule 403 Certification and be able to attend Court Hearings, Including Minor Settlement Hearings and Wrongful Death Hearings
Outstanding written and oral communication skills.
The ability to work in a rapidly changing environment.
Strong attention to detail and excellent work ethic.
Outstanding computer, research, technological, and organizational skills.
Outstanding people skills.
The ability to think strategically and execute the fine details of a plan.
Dual licensed in Georgia.
At least two years of experience in a high-volume personal injury firm.
Willingness to work on partial commission-based compensation transitioning to full commission upon attaining a full case load.
Hunger for advancement and financial opportunity. Grit is a plus!
In addition to your resume, please include a writing sample as well as 3 references.
**Typically, pay is a hybrid of base salary and commission upon hiring.
