Collins Family Law Group

We are a Family Law Group and we are looking for members to add to our team who are fierce, strong, and compassionate as well as ethical, professional, and trustworthy. You must be committed to excellence, value clients, and want to be a part of something extraordinary. This position is ideal for someone looking for long-term potential and not just a stepping stone.

You will be investing in yourself to grow a firm and create a culture that will break the mold and change people’s lives.

You must understand that customer service is king (queen?). We want referrals from thriving clients. We want to deliver an experience that is above and beyond the norm.

If you believe that this is the “home” you’re looking for – a place where excellence is rewarded, where you can be significant, and where you love coming to work every day – then please apply.

Keep in mind that even though we want only excellent people to apply, not-so-excellent people will inevitably still apply. So, we’ve devised a series of tests to weed those people out. If you are as serious about this position as we are, then you’ll follow it through to the end. If not, then let’s all be glad we figured that out now rather than later.

We look forward to receiving your resume!
