Duties Description The Division of Criminal Justice is seeking a talented candidate for the position of Legal Support Analyst (LSA) for the New York City office. The LSA will work closely with Assistant Attorneys General in the Crime Proceeds Strike Force and Criminal Enforcement and Financial Crimes Bureau to investigate and prosecute complex financial schemes and white-collar crimes, focusing primarily on securities and investment fraud, money laundering and tax crimes.
LSAs serve a critical role in the division and perform both investigative and paralegal functions. Specifically, LSAs are responsible for conducting investigative assignments such as drafting subpoenas, reviewing documents, searching commercial and law enforcement databases, analyzing phone and bank records, and monitoring electronic surveillance. In addition, LSAs perform legal support tasks, such as processing documents to be turned over during discovery, preparing demonstrative exhibits, aiding Assistant Attorneys General in court proceedings, and testifying in the grand jury and at trial. Please note that this is not an attorney position and LSAs do not typically conduct legal research. This is a full-time position and we are seeking to fill the opening immediately.
