Posted on: September 15, 2022

Equivity is looking for a part-time virtual paralegal with recent experience supporting attorneys in personal injury law firms. If you have at least three years of personal injury paralegal experience, have previously assisted attorneys directly, and are looking for a long-term, part-time virtual paralegal role, we want to hear from you! 

This role requires a paralegal familiar with total loss offers, property damage claims, filing claims, and ordering medical records from hospitals (including different departments such as the ER, physician’s offices, radiology records, etc.). In addition to requesting records, the selected candidate will summarize medical records, communicate with clients and insurance companies, and prepare demand letters. You should be available for at least 20 hours/week. 

More about our company

Equivity matches clients with virtual assistants that provide long-term paralegal, administrative and marketing support. Our virtual paralegals work with a high degree of autonomy and are responsible for developing lasting relationships with our clients. Because we provide extremely attentive service to our clients, you must be available to respond to client communications throughout the business day (Monday through Friday, 9am – 6pm Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern Time) within one hour by email, phone, and text. You should also be available to complete tasks and work on projects during the business day. All of this work is done remotely, meaning that you can work from home.

The selected candidate would be hired as a part-time employee (W2) of Equivity, not an independent contractor (1099). We are looking for somebody who has at least 20 hours per week of availability, and the starting pay is $20 per hour. We are a growing business and are looking for a virtual paralegal who is excited to partner with us and is interested in a long-term role with our company.

  • Organization
  • Dedication
  • Initiative
  • Reliability
  • Attention to detail
  • Resourcefulness
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Responsiveness
  • Ability to work independently with limited oversight
  • Self-starter
