FSA, a rapidly growing professional services company delivering highly qualified personnel in support of federal law enforcement, has an immediate vacancy for a Paralegal/Legal Assistant II to support the Affirmative Civil Enforcement (ACE) unit at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
ACE refers to filing civil lawsuits on behalf of the United States. The purpose of these civil actions is to recover government money lost to fraud or other misconduct or to impose penalties for violations of federal health, safety or environmental laws. Enforcement actions include health care fraud, defense procurement fraud, grant fraud; fair housing, disability rights, and other civil rights enforcement; and tort actions to recover the cost of suppressing fires on national park or national forest land.
A Paralegal/Legal Assistant II executes the following duties:
Draft and proof motions, briefs, bills of cost, declarations, internal memoranda, production and witness subpoenas, and correspondence. Prepare summaries of testimony and depositions for attorneys.
Responsible for the management and organization of discovery for complex and high-profile cases and civil investigations, sometimes comprised of millions of documents.
Maintain detailed logs of the incoming and outgoing discovery, correspondence, productions, reports, exhibits, and parties to ensure the status on cases is easily discerned to anyone who should need to review the file.
Prepare discovery packets for distribution, and assemble and organize exhibits for use at trial, depositions, and interviews; arrange shipment of exhibits to multiple locations across the United States.
Maintain discovery in-house, processing productions through e-Scan IT to ensure the documents and files are load-ready.
Import the images, text, and data into an in-house discovery database, such as Summation or Concordance. Responsible for the optimization and upkeep of each case database. Once documents are loaded in a discovery database, analyze them and code relevant information into the case database.
With larger, document-intensive cases, manage the delivery of large-scale productions to a third party vendor for import into a discovery database. Relativity and Palantir are database programs used for larger cases. Utilize the various tools in Relativity to discover, analyze, and notate key documents for depositions, interviews, briefs, and trial.
Verify exhibit, case, and statute citations on letters, motions, and briefs to ensure all references are accurate and that the case law is still authoritative.
Create exhibits and visual aids for use at witness interviews, meetings, and for trial. Use trial presentation software to extract video clips from depositions and sync deposition transcripts with video.
Utilize Palantir to search, analyze, and filter relevant and key documents, create visual links and relationships between documents, people, or items, and to build charts and graphs.
Utilize multiple, complex software programs needed for the organization and assimilation of documents and information. This includes: e-Scan IT, i-Convert, Summation, Concordance, CaseMap, TimeMap, and TextMap.
Use the CaseMap Suite programs (CaseMap, TimeMap, and TextMap) independently of each other as well as concurrently to highlight key facts, events, and documents, create timelines, and manage, search, and create clips of deposition transcripts.
