Exceptional communication skills with stellar attention to detail

What You'll Do
The legal industry is exciting and complex — and online content related to the law must follow strict, precise requirements to meet industry standards and ensure only accurate, well-researched information is presented to readers. At WebFX, we're looking for a talented, research-minded writer who's excited to explore the legal world in their work. Someone who's passionate about covering everything from workers' compensation to whistleblower attorneys, from setting up trusts to state-specific probate processes, from divorce laws to criminal defense topics.
We want you to be driven by a love for knowledge in the legal space and have a knack for asking the right questions to fuel your research. Whatever the topic, you are experienced in reading and parsing professional/academic research, authoritative sources and date sets. In your writing, you know how to translate that information into copy that's user-friendly and in line with a client's specific voice and style.
We're looking for someone who's excited by the idea of diving deep into topics in this industry and helping drive results with the copy you write. If this sounds like you, get in touch!
