DAY PITNEY LLP

TRUSTS AND ESTATES PARALEGAL

 

 

Day Pitney LLP seeks an experienced trust and estates paralegal to be resident in its West Hartford office.  The position requires the ability to manage and timely produce a high volume of complex, detailed work involving domestic estate administration, trust administration, and fiduciary accounting.  We seek a candidate who can work independently, handling the administration of an estate from beginning to end collaborating with attorneys as needed.  Because much of the work is in the areas of accounting and estate taxes, the preferred candidate must have good mathematical skills, good organization skills, and strong technological skills.

 

Day Pitney’s Trusts and Estates practice is among the largest in the nation, with nearly 65 lawyers supported by 35 paralegals, 30 legal assistants, and other direct practice staff in trust operations and estate planning support.  The firm services clients from Boston to Florida from nine locations, providing the full range of services needed by individuals and their families as well as fiduciaries. The operating culture of our trusts and estates group is anchored on a commitment to collaboration and teamwork.  The trusts and estates paralegals work closely together across offices and jurisdictions.  Paralegal professional development training sessions are held monthly; regular meetings among paralegals in a location are also held to ensure that work is balanced and to discuss resource and training issues.  Our cultural commitment to collaboration encourages associates to work with various partners in multiple jurisdictions; our paralegals have the same opportunity. 

 

Responsibilities of this position include:

·          Identifying, gathering, and valuing assets; preparing various probate and accounting documents;
·          Preparing accountings for both estates and trusts
·          Preparing death tax returns, including the federal estate tax return and state estate tax returns
·          Reviewing and interpreting wills and trust agreements, in collaboration with attorneys, so as to implement the plan during the estate and trust administration process and to fund trusts
·          Although attorneys generally research issues of law, the paralegal must be able to use reference materials and perform basic research using a variety of resources

 

Education and experience required includes:

·          Undergraduate degree and paralegal certification (or equivalent)

·          Familiarity with probate court procedures and regulatory agencies

·          Experience working with Microsoft Office resources (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint), with PDF software and related scanning and production utilities, and with document management software

·          Experience working with tax preparation and accounting software (e.g., OneSource Trust & Estate FAS)

·          Ability to learn and use advanced software programs and new technology and desire to seek and attend training to improve skills

·          Good understanding of basic business relationships and client confidentiality principles
