Youngblood Law, PLLC

Do you love helping good people through high-conflict family law situations so they can seize the life they want? Do you have a heart for comforting people who are facing the stress of divorce or a case involving their children? Maybe you are a solo lawyer who has discovered the daily grind of running a firm cuts into your time to just be an awesome lawyer and advocate for your clients. Maybe you are working for a firm that uses a cookie-cutter model for family law cases, and you know you can do more for your clients than what your firm allows. Whatever your circumstance, this may be the opportunity for you.

We are a family law firm that is on track for aggressive growth (no seriously! We are expecting to DOUBLE this year!) We need an experienced associate attorney to join our team to help us reach more people with our caring, thoughtful model. You will work directly with the owners and support staff to support the team and be the lawyer you want to be.

We want to be known for helping our clients come out of an extremely emotional process feeling as though they are a better person, in a better position, and that they had a thoughtful and assertive team behind them that really cared and fought for them.

If the statements below appeal to you, then you may be our next Associate Attorney!

  • You seek opportunities to help people.
  • You value thoughtfully negotiated solutions over mud-slinging adversarial hearings.
  • You see the value of solid preparation for hearings even if the case settles.
  • You know that high-value work for the clients costs them money, so you avoid wasteful processes.
  • You do not internalize client drama. You remain professionally detached from the toxicity clients are going through while still caring for the client.
  • You are an awesome juggler of tasks and can change gears quickly.

This is a full-time job where you are expected to manage a caseload, so you absolutely must be able to work in the office for 40 hours per week. This is a salaried position, and there is ample opportunity for bonus compensation for those who can demonstrate their profitability.

The ideal candidates (we are currently seeking two experienced associates) may come from other firms or maybe solo attorneys with their own firm. Either way, we will consider bringing quality paralegals onboard as well. So, if you work with a fantastic paralegal already, you won't necessarily be abandoning your colleague.

If you are an associate attorney seeking professional growth or to make a name for yourself in the local legal community, we could be a great fit for you. If you are a solo lawyer who has discovered that running a law firm cuts into your time to be the awesome lawyer you want to be, let us run the firm so you can be a lawyer!

We have an office waiting for your name on the door!

Responsibilities

The ideal candidate will manage litigation cases and resolve legal disputes on behalf of clients by developing case strategies based on the clients' desired outcomes, draft and edit pleadings, negotiate with opposing counsel, and litigate fiercely for clients in court. All of this will be in addition to building client relationships and providing an excellent customer experience.

We are growing fast, and we need a family lawyer who can hit the ground running. This position will be responsible for important work, including:

  • Litigating contentious hearings
  • Planning client-centered strategies
  • Negotiating thoughtful settlements
  • Preparing tactical operations to influence successful outcomes
  • Working directly with clients to advise them on best practices to minimize client stress and mitigate client risk during the proceedings

Qualifications

  • We love to help people learn and grow. But we don’t have the time for that right now.
  • We need an associate attorney with experience in divorce, SAPCRs, protective orders, and adoptions.
  • The ideal candidate will be able to take initiative on work that needs to be done and complete tasks with minimal hand holding.

Compensation
$100,000 - $130,000 yearly
