Accounting Manager - Law Firm (Full or Part Time)

Why Work with Us?

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to feel valued and important, join a growing business with a variety of services, and be part of a team of happy, friendly, and caring people, who enjoy laughing while working together and focusing on high-level service for our clients.

Our firm culture is welcoming, warm, and focused on interpersonal relationships with each other and our clients. Our team comes from a variety of backgrounds with diverse personal interests and we appreciate each other's differences. As one of our team members stated – “This is a fabulous place to work” and as another stated – "Working in our office is a lot different than where I worked before – I feel valued for my input and appreciate the focus on helping me grow, with support for education and training."

You would be valued for your hard work and efforts and included in our team-building activities during our work days (such as water-color painting parties – yes, it’s fun - and next month, we plan screen printing). 

This is also a great opportunity for someone to change his/her/their work-life from a stressful environment with a lot of demand to one that is more relaxed, more friendly, and more collaborative, and with others who would appreciate your perspective.

There is also an opportunity for growth in the position and promotion as the firm grows, as you expand the scope of the position, or if you outperform our expectations for the position, all through your initiative and knowledge base.

The Opportunity

We are a dynamic, consultative, and enterprising law firm seeking to add an experienced Accounting Manager to our happy, highly reputable, and growing team. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to join a growing business that is expanding its current base of services and has plans to develop other areas of professional service that will help our clients and be interesting for everyone on our team. The right person for this position will be someone who likes working collaboratively with others - you would work closely with the firm’s owner, bookkeeper, and outside CFO to develop internal accounting procedures, policies, and processes, in addition to the daily, weekly, and monthly responsibilities of accounting and financial reporting matters; overseeing client invoicing; employee time reporting; cash flow budgeting; revenue and expense projections; and other related tasks and responsibilities.

About Us

We collaborate on providing high-level estate, tax, business planning, and reporting services. Our practice is focused on advisory services in addition to the traditional work of preparing estate documents, and tax returns, with varied daily work.
