Crowley Fleck PLLP
Got approval to hire a new admin/paralegal for my transactional group. Firm isn’t doing a great job advertising the post and I think the best pitch we have is “Give us two years making around $40k before law school, work here during law school, and you’ll have a job paying $190k already set up for when you graduate.” Any suggestions how to find this person? I’m in DC.
