Wilson Legal

Are you the next attorney for our law firm?

  • Are you looking for a growing, innovative culture with the support you need and want to do the job?
  • Do you thrive as a big fish in a small pond, with the owner’s ear tuned into you? Would it be great to not only feel heard but be heard by the other attorneys with whom you work?
  • Would you enjoy the opportunity to interact with clients daily, design and execute strategies for clients, and shape firm processes changing the efficiency and overall value to the client for the better - rather than push paper all day?
  • Do you get excited about opportunities to grow personally and professionally? Are you ready for your potential to be seen? Are you ready for a new challenge and the chance to chase your potential?

For solo practitioners: Are you tired of paying all the bills for the office yourself? Would it be nice to have a little help so you can focus on what you do best? Would you like for someone else to deal with staffing and manage the operations?

For senior attorneys: Would you like the option to practice start taking fewer cases and create a life with better hours? Would you appreciate the option of handing off the duties of managing the office and staff? Are you looking for ways to slowly wind down your practice, connected to a firm with a good reputation in the community, and ensure your clients are in good hands? An “of counsel” position may be the perfect solution.

If yes, then this position could be a great fit for you. We help clients care for their loved ones both while they’re here, and after they’re gone. We forge long-lasting, generational relationships with our clients. We value employees who enjoy creating and fostering rewarding relationships with clients, and who know how to work hard and have fun.
