The right candidate will be very analytical, have a keen attention to detail, enjoy research, and gathering data to formulate information for easy review.

Traditional requirements are knowledge of litigation procedure, familiarity with ME (NH a plus) court systems, preparing pleadings, calendaring, scheduling, proof reading, document production (including Excel documents) and case management.
