Foster Law Firm

We are seeking a family law associate attorney, licensed in the State of Georgia, with at least 3 years of experience, including motion practice experience, who is passionate about helping people.

We are not your typical small law firm. Our enterprising law firm is poised for aggressive growth, and we’re looking for an attorney who can hit the ground running to give clients outstanding representation. Ideal candidates have 3 or more years of experience as lawyers in family law or who have strong litigation experience and can demonstrate the ability to learn quickly.

We are looking for a team player willing to take ownership of a client’s case, including direct contact with clients and opposing counsel, drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, and handling mediations, status-conferences, pretrial hearings, and trials. You will need to have strong skills in the following areas: research, writing, courtroom presentation, and common technology.

Skills and experience are appreciated and valued, and certainly considered, but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are also extremely important considerations.

Salary is commensurate with skill and experience. There will be opportunities for merit bonuses. [We offer paid time off, pay for continuing legal education, bar dues, and E&O insurance]

If this exciting opportunity appeals to you, we look forward to reviewing your resume.

Responsibilities
  • Prepare correspondence and legal documents such as contracts, pleadings, briefs, affidavits, motions, and settlement agreements for contract negotiations and proceedings
  • Maintain client files in an organized fashion to ensure up-to-date information is handy for other attorneys, paralegals and support staff
  • Analyze conflicts in legal matters, advise clients on solutions, and negotiate on behalf of clients
  • Conduct legal research, prepare for and attend hearings and/or other legal proceedings, and provide legal counsel with the help of senior associate attorneys
Qualifications
  • Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree required from an accredited law school
  • Successful completion of the bar exam
  • Solid communication skills and problem-solving skills required in order to work with clients, staff members and senior attorneys
  • Prepared to learn from senior attorneys to meet our client needs and grow our client base
