Job Description:

We are looking for highly motivated entry-level associates to join our team! We are not like other law firms. We are innovative in every respect. Our firm focuses on Family Law exclusively! We are passionate about helping our clients through their most difficult trials when their families are at risk.

If you are interested in growing professionally and personally in an environment that promotes growth both in a collegial atmosphere, this may be the opportunity for you. We have built a solid reputation by taking care of our clients, which we couldn't do without a dynamite team of attorneys. We are dedicated to providing a workplace that you will love. Law is mentally and physically tough, but with the right team, staff support, and positive atmosphere, you will be able to provide your clients with the top-notch service they deserve while feeling accomplished!

We value our attorneys. We want you to succeed and have a fantastic legal career. We want employees for life. The attorney will carry a reasonably sized caseload, with the expectation that he or she will provide service that surprises. We expect our attorneys to focus on the mission to develop stronger families by empowering clients to make healthy choices. That is almost impossible with attorneys on the verge of burnout. We need you happy - we like you happy - and we'll do our darnedest to help you develop a healthy work-life balance.
