RSH Legal is Cedar Rapids-based law firm dedicated to representing injured people and their families. We do not represent insurance corporations. Our firm proudly handles claims involving work injuries, motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, premises liability, trucking accidents, and social security disability.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT THE JOB ENTAILS:
RSH Legal is seeking an associate civil trial attorney with 0 to 5 years of experience. You will work alongside Pressley Henningsen on significant wrongful death, professional negligence, and complex tort cases. We aim to be Iowa’s preeminent personal injury law firm and have had the good fortune and experience in hiring some Iowa’s best attorneys and staff. We look to continue that tradition with this hire. Your job will focus on dealing with large amounts of documents. This will include being primarily responsible for management of the written discovery, motions, and appeals. You must enjoy organizing cases, working within deadlines, and balancing numerous projects at any given time. You will need a mind for detail as you will be discovering needles in haystacks, smoking guns, and patterns of bad behavior. You also must thoroughly enjoy and excel at practical-minded research and writing. You will take and defend depositions. You will help develop trial themes, strategies, and presentations. You will argue before the courts on motions and appeals. You will assist at trial, again primarily focused on the related pleadings, motions, evidence, and jury instructions but you will also engage in actual trial practice dependent upon your abilities and desire to do so.
WHAT WE OFFER:
You will be provided with a competitive salary, employer-paid health insurance and a retirement plan, talented support staff, the best CLE, and an efficient comfortable office with mentorship and the tools you need to succeed. We are a forward-thinking law firm and do not prescribe to the antiquated law firm “partnership track” so you will not need to worry about keeping track of your time, overhead, HR, bringing in clients, etc. You will join a true team united by our shared goal to help people and in exchange you will receive what you need to succeed.
