About the Organisation 

Stacks Law Firm is a family-owned, Australian organisation that provides full-service, expert legal services through a network of local offices owned and operated by local professionals. They are committed to supporting the legal needs of everyday Australians and businesses across every stage of life.

Since the firm was first founded in 1931, they have ensured that client care is at the core of their practice, treating all clients with genuine compassion and providing practical advice in clear, plain English.

With their relaxed, country-town origins, Stacks provides an alternative to the high pressure, cutthroat environment of typical law firms. Although they have the resources and leading-edge technologies that are expected from a national legal practice, each office is owned and operated by real people who are proud and active members of the communities they serve.

About the Opportunity 

Stacks Law Firm is now seeking a Senior Paralegal to join the team in their Murwillumbah office on a full-time basis.

Working in the Personal Injury team and with the direct support of a legal assistant, you will be responsible for liaising with clients, preparing applications and drafting documents.

More specifically, your responsibilities will include (but not be limited to): 

  • Preparing out of pocket schedules, lists of documents, and chronologies;
  • Providing briefs to Counsel, doctors, and experts;
  • Sending documents and medical reports to insurers, clients, and other stakeholders as required;
  • Liaising and general correspondence with clients to arrange meetings and advise of medical appointments;
  • Assisting with brief client advice and minor legal tasks;
  • Drafting documents for motor accident matters and work cover claims; and
  • Preparing applications and supporting docs for a range of NSW and QLD matters.

About You

Stacks is looking for someone who can hit the ground running, with significant Paralegal experience in the Personal Injury field in either NSW or QLD, with experience in both highly regarded.

Importantly, you will be a patient and empathetic individual, with the ability to show compassion for those experiencing significant physical or medical hardships, in addition to a range of psychological injuries, often as a result of workplace bullying or similar. You will be passionate about social justice and have a genuine interest in working to help people.

It is vital that you can work autonomously on a variety of tasks, effectively managing competing deadlines whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy. You will also require strong Microsoft Office and general computer skills, and ideally be familiar with the use of legal software, particularly Practice Evolve or similar.

About the Benefits

In exchange for your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with a competitive salary plus super and Relocation Assistance, negotiable for the right candidate. You will be joining a supportive, family-friendly business with flexible hours and enjoy the opportunity for additional bonuses in the future.

Stacks Law Firm offers the chance to escape the competitive 'climb to the top' culture of typical practices, with small, close-knit teams and a friendly, harmonious working environment. With incredibly low staff turnover, this is a great opportunity to start a long-term career with a modern, progressive organisation.
