About PJI Law, PLC

We are a forward-thinking, well-managed organization that was founded in 2010 on the idea that having a happy team and having happy clients are interconnected goals. This is a concept that we see in many industries but far too rarely in the legal profession.

See, we listen to our team members. Much of the time, we’re working with them one-on-one to help them reach their personal and professional goals. Other times, we’re listening to their suggestions on how to improve the firm. So many of the changes we’ve made that have catapulted our growth have resulted directly from feedback we’ve actively solicited from every single person here. It is no surprise we maintain an incredible retention rate!

In order to preserve the integrity of our culture, we are selective in our efforts to identify good people who are also motivated professionals. If this is what you’re looking for, we would love to hear from you.
