The Law Offices of Kimberly Butler Rainen

We are actively searching for an attorney to work with our current team of three attorneys, support staff, and our awesome clients to help them through their estate planning or administration. This person performs legal services including legal research; designing, drafting, and implementing comprehensive estate plans, crafting and implementing estate tax and long-term care planning strategies, administering probate and trust estates, and occasionally appearing on behalf of and advocating for clients at probate court (though we are not a litigation firm). If you love dotting i's and crossing t's, we are the place for you!

Work in cooperation with firm staff to efficiently, cost-effectively, and promptly deliver the client's work product. The associate will conduct regular file reviews and other procedural duties as required by firm policy and communicate status changes and updates to clients regularly. Great people skills and communication are a must!
