Legal advisor in family law

Remote

Job description

Neolegal was founded following an observation: traditional access to justice is sometimes cruelly lacking in accessibility. Its cost, its slowness but also its complexity sometimes make it the worst enemy of the person who nevertheless has a real need in this area.

Today, the great Neolegal family continues to grow and continues over time. We cover most areas of law: criminal law, business law, civil law, family law, etc.

We contribute together to protect and guarantee the rights of our customers, all different, but so unique to us. We are at Neolegal, a big devoted family and what drives us is the interests of those who call on us.

If you recognize yourself in our story, now is the time to align your career with your values.
