Responsibilities:

On-site position supporting the DOJ Environment and Natural Resources division in conducting comprehensive title and deed research and testifying as an expert witness on research and results. Most common subject matter relates to Rails to Trails. Research typically includes identifying, acquiring, analyzing and summarizing various conveyance documents that predecessor railroad entities obtained to construct, operate, and maintain railways. Most of these title documents, which show how the railroad acquired its interest in a given rail corridor, were entered into in the late 1800s or early 1900s. These documents typically are handwritten and often contain terminology that differs from modern-day documents. Title documents, maps and other necessary case-related documents are obtained from multiple sources, some of which may require travel in order to identify and copy documents.

Once documents and related materials are obtained, tasks include reviewing the materials and working with the assigned trial attorneys to determine the legal significance of each document. Excel is used extensively to document research results. Collaboration with GIS specialists is frequent. A strong working knowledge of document management software (such as Relativity) and Excel is needed. Tasks also include assisting in preparing these documents for use as

exhibits for court filings and for trial.

Position requires maintaining files in order provide written and/or verbal testimony regarding the research performed and conclusions reached in the performance of the above tasks. Travel may be required in the performance of the above tasks. Travel is expected to be within the United States, but may occasionally be international.
