The Law Office of Jennifer J. McCaskill, LLC

Do you enjoy being a Family Lawyer? Have you been practicing Family Law on a full-time basis for at least 10-12 years?

We are an Divorce and Family law firm that is on track for growth and we need an experienced Senior Associate to join our team and work directly with the owner and attorneys to support the team and help clients.

You MUST have a MINIMUM of 10 years with exclusively Family Law experience or your application will not be considered.

We love to help people learn and grow. But we don’t have the time for that right now. We need a Senior Associate with experience in exclusively Family Law. The ideal candidate will be able to take initiative on work that needs to be done and complete tasks with minimal hand-holding.

This is a full-time job where you are expected to manage a caseload, so you absolutely must be able to work *in the office* for 40 hours per week and bill the amount of time expected. There is an opportunity for bonus compensation for those who can demonstrate their profitability.

Prepare a cover letter with no more than TWO paragraphs and a closing sentence. In the first paragraph explain what you believe are the 3 most important qualities needed in someone who works with family law clients and why you believe they are the most important qualities. In the second paragraph, explain why you applied to this particular ad. As a closing sentence please write, “I have read the instructions contained in the job posting and have followed the instructions.”

We look forward to reviewing your application.
