Social Security Disability Paralegal/Case Manager
Ascend Disability is seeking an experienced Social Security Disability Case Manager to take the reins of a growing case load. As a young firm, we are looking for a superstar A-Player to help define this position and set the tone for future Case Managers. The Case manager is responsible for assisting clients throughout the Social Security Disability claims process, from filing the initial application to developing the record for hearing. While experience in this field is absolutely necessary, we are also looking for more important qualities such as iron clad integrity, an unrelenting drive to obtain results, a deep desire to help others, and a commitment to operational efficiency and excellence. The right candidate for this job will also show stability and poise under pressure when working with clients who are experiencing tremendous financial and medical hardship. This job is perfect for medical-legal professionals with a medical background and experience handling Social Security Disability claims.
If you are tired of the corporate grind, this is an incredible opportunity to make a change and work for a small but growing law firm. By getting in on the ground level, you will be able to chart your own path, as we continue to grow and add more positions. You will have the chance to work in an environment where office politics, gossip, and laziness are not tolerated. Rest assured that—once you are part of our team—you will be surrounded by excellent, supportive people, and you will be given the opportunity to shine.
Ascend Disability is a young law firm planted as firmly as an ancient oak tree near the mighty Mississippi River in New Orleans—a city where the past and present cohabitate. We planted our roots here, and opened our doors with the hopes of growing with this amazing, resilient, beautiful city, filled with exceptional people. Charged by the electric, entrepreneurial atmosphere that now fills the Crescent City, we are growing rapidly. Our reach extends to more and more people every day, as we constantly search for the tired, the needy, and the downtrodden.
