Are YOU at the point in your career where you are looking to create something magical in a team oriented environment where your legal knowledge and leadership skills can shine and be honed? Do YOU want to join an influential Central Florida immigration law firm where you can flex your legal muscles with the greater goal of helping our clients transform their lives? Are YOU looking for a high-level role where you contribute to the firm’s overall voice and vision?
In other words - You are looking for work that has purpose. You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and get stuff done. You learn quickly. You move fast. You love a good challenge. You are just as comfortable managing a team of paralegals as you are advocating for a client in the courtroom or before USCIS. You believe you have something unique to contribute and you aren’t afraid to raise your hand. You are looking for a place to grow and an environment where everyone has a seat at the table and is genuinely welcome.
Who WE Are:
The BLC Crew is a team of talented people who change lives through skilled immigration work and collaboration. We pursue excellence in all that we do, but never at the expense of our values. There’s no denying our work is demanding, both in volume and pace, but we love the balance of hard work and fun – you’ll see us in cool matching sweaters and participating in “Fun Friday” activities at our monthly team meetings. We seek opportunities to be of service to others and our communities. We are committed to your development and want to set you up for success here at BLC and beyond.
We’re Better together:
A bright, driven person like you and a growing powerhouse like the BLC? It’s a colossal combination! We truly want to see you succeed here and become an integral part of our mission to help every immigrant achieve their own version of the American Dream. We’re looking for a seasoned immigration attorney to join our practice, who shares our core values, is a special self-starter who wants to build a career at our firm, and is ready to rock and roll from day one. Can you:
Represent clients in immigration law matters including but not limited to family petitions, waivers, consular processing, DACA, VAWA, U Visas, and T Visas, etc.?
Represent BLC clients before agencies such as USCIS, EOIR, BIA, etc.?
Write rings around other attorneys, in concise, well-researched prose?
Manage complex and difficult cases and clients in a way that reflects our cultural values?
Oversee and manage a team of 3 paralegals in case preparation and submission?
Work independently, but also work alongside and collaborate with a dedicated team?
Manage multiple deadlines and handle staff questions without breaking a sweat?
Interact and communicate with our clients and team members from a place of compassion, while adhering to the firm’s mission, values and goals?
Network like a boss and make contacts who might need our firm in the future?
Be involved in the local legal community, including attending AILA & Bar functions, to rep the firm?
If you’ve been nodding “yes” to most of these questions, you’re probably the unicorn we’re looking for … and want to hear from you! We offer a competitive salary that’s commensurate with your experience, along with incentives and paid time off, 401K, health insurance, and possibly a Caribbean cruise (yes, you read that right!) To apply, email a short cover letter, your resume, and a writing sample to our CEO, Bridgette M. Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org), and our Law Firm Administrator, Marina Lopez (email@example.com). The email should tell us where you are currently, why you’re looking to make a change, and how your skills can benefit Bennett Law Center and our clients.
