Job Description:

We take on the ugly in family law cases, so our clients don't have to. We do what we do because it's our mission to get-----every--client--to the other side of an--ugly legal situation.--We believe every client deserves the opportunity to see (and taste) the rainbow on the other side. Can you visualize what that feels like? Looks like? Many of our clients cannot.-----We're in the business of getting them there.

Our firm is a female-led, minority, woman-owned, LGBTQIA+-----allied--law firm-----with clear values.--We are candid. We want and help our staff to grow, personally and professionally. That means there is accountability. That means there are opportunities. That means there is communication. That means there is introspection. If those things are your vibe, you're probably going to do well with us.

Why Work with Us?--



--- Be a part of a team that is passionate about helping our clients get to the other side of a difficult time in life
--- We only employ competent and accountable professionals---so we operate by empowering our team - not micromanaging
--- Begin with competitive base pay AND enjoy a generous performance-based bonus system to recognize your success
--- Enjoy generous health benefits
--- Opportunities to grow and develop within this fast-growing firm

If you align with our vibe (and you read all the stuff above), we are looking for a Senior Associate Attorney to join our team.----
Here are some of the qualities we have found will help you excel in this position:

--- You are imaginative, creative, and an analytical thinker
--- You have a strong motivation for finding solutions to aligning the law with complex family scenarios
--- Your approach to work is systematic and patient, characterized by introspection and the development of new ideas
--- Sufficient opportunity to express and act on these new ideas is very important
--- Your communication style will be factual and authoritative when discussing matters in your area of expertise, and you may be quiet and reserved with those outside your inner work circle
--- Most of your work will be done on your own, but you will interface with others on a project basis
--- The job requires a deliberate, unhurried pace, providing plenty of time for serious introspection to be sure you get it right. Most of your decisions will be made alone because you're an expert, and you don't require consistent input. If the job requires delegation, you will follow up closely to assure the accuracy of the work.

If you're the right fit for this job, you know you will appreciate these things about the role:

--- Working at a deliberate pace and having ample time to delve deep into your work
--- Being about to use your strong analytical and problem-solving skills that are based on serious introspection and being deeply involved with the facts
--- Able to make decisions independently, relying on your own knowledge and technical abilities without needing to involve others when problem-solving
--- Being open and friendly amongst coworkers without needing to be a social butterfly
--- You will be somewhat assertive, confident, and direct when speaking about your area of specialization because, after all, you are an expert
--- And for the most part, you will only delegate minor details, checking for accuracy along the way.
