  • Delegate work to legal assistants and collaborate with them to serve our clients.
  • Working together with other lawyers in the firm to meet clients’ more complex needs.

  • You are happy in fast-paced work environments, enjoy working in a team, and have an empathetic approach with clients.
  • You can contribute to developing the strategy of a case and you know where to find the rules and caselaw to back up that case strategy.
  • You are comfortable in a courtroom and know how to project confidence and competence when representing our clients.
  • You excel at setting realistic expectations for our clients and managing those expectations as the case progresses.
  • If you see a case file as an opportunity to help someone build their new life, you will like the way we think.
  • You appreciate the value of streamlined policies and procedures to ensure that each client receives excellent representation and you are comfortable adapting your personal style to incorporate our high standards of care.
  • Skills and experience are important and valued, but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are extremely important considerations.
  • We are growing, and you will be called upon to wear many hats. You are someone who is not afraid to pitch in and help where the team needs it.
