Do you want to help people through divorce with dignity? Do you want to help deliver excellent legal services? Are you looking for an opportunity to get into a courtroom with your own caseload? We are an entrepreneurial family law firm that is on track for aggressive growth and we need an associate attorney who can hit the ground running as we build our tribe. Personality, character, and integrity are priority considerations for our firm. If you desire a position where you can go home at night knowing that you made a difference in somebody’s life, this may be a position for you.

We are looking for a hard-working team player who wants to take ownership of a client's case. This includes regular communication with clients and opposing counsel, drafting of pleadings and motions, taking depositions, supervising aspects of discovery for assigned cases, and the ability to take matters to hearing/trial.
 
The ideal candidate will have five years of experience in family law or have demonstrated strong equivalent experience. For the right candidate who may not have the proper experience, if you have a demonstrated ambition and willingness to learn, we are willing to teach you.
 
Salary is commensurate with skills and experience. There will be opportunities for merit bonuses in addition to salary based upon performance and exceeding billable requirements. If this exciting opportunity appeals to you follow these instructions that you will receive after the initial screening.
