“There’s a lot of variety..I really enjoy being able to jump in and be creative in the ways I can help. I’ve gotten to wear a lot of different hats with Lawtrades”.
Meet Jill! She is a newbie talent with Lawtrades, working as a paralegal specializing in legal operations. Originally from rural Minnesota, Jill’s dad actually pushed her toward the legal profession. Jill began her legal career after graduating from junior college with a paralegal certification. Interestingly, she ended up working in the area she said she never wanted to be- in real estate. Jill went on to get her business degree in organizational management & communications from Concordia University. After this, she moved to California and found a contract with Google that led her toward the start-up community.
Path to Lawtrades
Jill’s freelance career began after she discovered her love of working with start-ups. She particularly enjoys working with tech companies as she thrives amongst a fast paced environment and can work on multiple engagements simultaneously. She’s been freelancing in the legal industry for over thirteen years! Lawtrades connected with Jill as she was a strong fit for numerous paralegal based legal operations positions our clients had open.
Success with Lawtrades
Jill is just beginning her journey with Lawtrades and has already found herself working on multiple engagements. Since she can implement several projects at once, Jill found variety and stability in that she has not had any pauses without work. Jill has continued to work with start-ups through Lawtrades, and has really enjoyed working a recent engagement where she was able to assist in growth on the ground floor, by instilling processes and procedures to assist a company growing much faster than expected.
Flexible Working Hours
Outside of work, Jill is a stand-up comedian! Since Lawtrades provides an environment that promotes a healthy work-life balance, she has the flexibility to work remotely wherever she needs to be- so she can pursue comedy at night.
