Our law firm is looking for the next associate attorney to assist in providing legal counsel to our clients. You will work closely with our senior partners and associates, conduct legal research, draft documents, and maintain client files.

  • Attend court hearings or other legal proceedings, perform legal research, and work with senior associate attorneys to provide legal advice
  • Analyze conflicts in legal matters, advise clients on solutions, and negotiate on behalf of clients

  • Provide full immigration services: family immigration, employment immigration, deportation defense
  • Manage cases from start to finish
  • Conduct client meetings and recommend strategies

  • Confident when faced with a highly emotional client and the ability to handle the situation with a professional demeanor and top customer service
