Atticus Family Law, S. C.

In the last five years, AFL has helped over 500 clients not just survive their family law transitions, but thrive through their divorces, custody cases, and other matters. How? By creating a law firm where the employees can thrive.

My name is Matt Ludt and I'm the owner of Atticus Family Law. AFL was started in 2013 with the goal in mind to build a law firm that serves clients well. In order to accomplish great things for our clients, we needed the values and systems to host the best staff. In the years since AFL has steadily grown to have 12 employees. Ask yourself:

  • Is your current firm just separate people working side by side? AFL is a team collaborating to advance our client's goals.
  • Do you find your coworkers leaving every few months? We frequently sit down with each employee, hear out their concerns, have conversations about their careers, and make sure they are appreciated.
  • And what about respect? Do you feel respected? AFL puts together salaries with smart bonus packages along with a full array of benefits and serious retirement plans.

The reason this job post considers me at all is that you need to know that I am building a law firm that focuses on the staff because a happy staff makes for successful clients. Let me know if you want in.

To apply for this position, please submit a detailed resume as well as a cover letter telling us why you are searching for a new position, why you are the best candidate for this position, and a writing sample. No emails, phone calls, or in-person applications will be accepted.

Each Paralegal will spend 45-90 days training via a mix of online and on-site; thereafter the position will include the option to work remotely from home. The role requires an extensive background and/or experience with family law and someone with strong knowledge and experience working well with clients.

About Atticus Family Law, S. C.


For family law clients who believe they deserve a fair outcome, Atticus Family Law, S. C. helps them make sure their outcome is not a hammock of misery but rather a springboard to a bright future. The design of AFL is that of a metaphorical law firm pizza – our clear vision and standards, well-chosen personnel, and quality clients are the crust, sauce, and cheese, respectfully. While pizzerias focus on toppings, AFL recognizes that without having proven crust, delicious sauce, and fresh cheese that any innovative law firm features, being the toppings, will not make the excellent pizza that leads to bright futures.

The legal staff of 3 paralegals, 3 attorneys, and a 3rd-year law student are led by the Owner and a Firm Director and supported by finance, sales, and office administrators
