Terpening Wilder Law, a successful and growing boutique federal criminal and civil litigation firm in Charlotte, has an immediate need to hire a paralegal/executive assistant/office manager who can play several important roles as we grow. We are looking for a candidate who will serve as the managing and founding partner’s “right hand” and assistant, performing a wide variety of tasks including: helping to develop the vision for the firm, traditional “paralegal” work, office and staff management, working as a liaison with clients, research, trial and courtroom assistance, and organizing/streamlining the partner’s case load and schedule. The ideal candidate will be hardworking and ambitious, respond well to a demanding environment, intend to stay and grow with the firm, demonstrate excellent judgment, be outgoing and enthusiastic for the work and the opportunity, be a perfectionist and well organized, and be interested in a “career,” rather than merely a “job.” Candidates looking for an easy “9 to 5” need not apply. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to do meaningful work and help build an exceptional, client and solution-focused law firm.
Good “fits” may currently be recent college graduates looking for an exciting introduction to the legal profession, or paralegals at other firms who are looking for more management responsibility and challenge, but we are principally looking for energy, intelligence, and commitment, so will consider strong and interesting candidates with any background.

**We are looking for a candidate who can begin very soon, so please only apply if you already reside in the Charlotte area.**
