Here at Axiom Legal Solutions, carefully analyzing the cases of our clients is of utmost importance. What analytical skills would you bring to the team here?
To be successful in the field of law and helping to achieve the best outcomes for clients, an analytical and evaluative mind are extremely important. To cut right to the chase, your interviewer will be looking to hear about the skills and experiences you have in analyzing data to come to reasonable and logical conclusions for both Axiom Legal Solutions and their clients. If possible, give a real world example or two where you put your analytical skills to good use.

Ryan's Answer #1
"My analytical skills as a successful attorney start with my ability to see everything from a 10,000-foot perspective and then putting together all of the pieces of the puzzle to build the best case possible for my clients. A recent success story happened a couple of months ago with a client that was going through a very complicated workers compensation claim that was ultimately denied by the employer. By gathering all of the information I could from my client, medical records and from the employer, I was able to use my working knowledge of workers compensation laws in my home state to win the case for my client."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Having been a paralegal in a personal injury settlement firm for the last three years, my analytical skills have been vital in working with the Attorneys in the firm. I'm relied upon to identify and evaluate the key factors in each case that I work on. From there, my analytical skills come through with my working knowledge of the law in this state to pull the necessary information for our Attorneys and leave out the irrelevant information. In looking to make the move to Axiom Legal Solutions, I understand there will be some learning curve to expand my knowledge outside of personal injury settlements and I would work hard to build that knowledge and let my analytical and logic skills take over."

Do you have any particular areas of wage and hour laws that particularly interest you?
A large firm like Axiom Legal Solutions often prefers staff to sub-specialize to be of best use to clients as subject matter experts. For this question, your interviewer will be looking to gauge your familiarity with the different aspects of wage and hour laws and where you find your abilities are best suited. There are no right or wrong answers for this question as your interviewer will be looking to see what clients you will best be suited in representing if hired for the position.

Ryan's Answer #1
"A majority of cases that I have represented during my career so far have revolved around exemption status laws under the FLSA. I have a great working knowledge of the salary basis tests and duties tests to advise clients to make proper decisions when considering statuses of their positions. With changes in law, like we just had recently regarding the minimum salary level for exemption, I am thoroughly versed in changes when they happen and can take swift action with clients to ensure compliance."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I've always had a particular interest in the child labor laws as I feel the United States is falling faster behind the world when it comes to preparing our future through our youth. I've been an advocate at the federal level for real changes in the surrounding this aspect, but I have also advised and represented organizations in their child labor practices in the food and hospitality industries. I think my experience and passion in this area would be a unique fit for the team here at Axiom Legal Solutions."

To ensure that our clients here at Axiom Legal Solutions are served in the best way possible, our staff must ensure that they are up to speed on all state and federal laws. How do you stay in touch with changes to local, state and federal tax laws?
While your years of education and experience in the field of tax law have prepared to you to work with the clients of Axiom Legal Solutions, your interviewer is looking to hear that you do what is necessary to stay up to date on changes in tax laws. Talk about the ways that you keep yourself educated and up to date in the field and make sure to speak with passion to your interviewer to show a true and genuine interest in your field.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As you can see from my resume, my dedication towards the tax law field immediately following law school when I pursued and attained my Masters in Law in Taxation degree. While this provided a very solid backbone for the start of my career, I am always actively learning more in the field through my pursuit of additional CLE credits and attending tax law seminars on a regular basis. And as any good attorney in this field, being tied at the hip to relevant materials directly from the IRS is always a plus. Being the tax nerd that I am, this comes pretty easy to me for some nighttime reading before bed."
Ryan's Answer #2
"In this industry, staying up to speed on changes in policy and law involved staying connected and doing my research whenever necessary. Involvement and regular discussion with colleagues in this industry helps us all stay informed and helps in ensuring that businesses are able to flourish. I have many great contacts in tax law that I meet with and have discussions with on a very regular basis."

Have you been involved in a corporate tax audit before? What did you learn from that experience?
Axiom Legal Solutions is often called upon for their legal guidance when a business is facing a tax audit. For this question, your interviewer is looking to see if you have experience working under IRS audit conditions and to hear what vital information you could bring to the team if hired. If you have experience, talk in detail about the type of organization you represented and what the audit entailed. If you don't have direct experience working with an IRS audit, talk about your working knowledge of the audit process and what your role would be in that.

Ryan's Answer #1
"Two years ago, I represented a small business that retained my firm after being notified of an audit. From the start, it was pretty easy to understand that the business owner had failed to report some pretty significant chunks of business income based on records that weren't reported. When it appeared like the IRS was poised to bring in their criminal investigation team, I worked with the client and the auditor to negotiate the standard settlement of interest on missed payment plus a 20% penalty. The client was extremely pleased to avoid potential stricter penalties and learned some important lessons moving forward with their business."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Two years ago, I was brought in to a very large, well known corporation that was receiving a tax audit from the IRS. While knowing that the accounting and finance procedures of the organization were spot on, my role was mainly to fully prepare them for the field audit that was happening in two weeks. Knowing the audit process well and reading the request from IRS, I was able to work with them on preparation for the field meeting in having all documentation prepared and being ready for any form of questions the auditors would bring. On the day of the audit, I was onsite representing the team and audit went very well."

Ryan's Answer #1
"As I've been searching for the right firm to join, the one aspect about Axiom Legal Solutions that really appeals to me is your international exposure and client base. My background and strong Spanish speaking skills could be a great asset to your firm and my desire to practice in international tax and corporate law would fit very well with what you are looking for."
Ryan's Answer #2
"In all honesty, this position is the only one that would pull me away from my current practice and that drawing factor that you have here at Axiom Legal Solutions is your reputation. The class, dignity and knowledge that are present among the staff here is world class and definitely a practice that I would take great pride in being a part of."
