Top credentials necessary with a desire to flourish in a small firm environment. Associates get immediate, substantial client contact and responsibility. We do not have a minimum hourly requirement because our focus is on client service. We are driven by results and not number of hours billed.

We are regularly hired by other lawyers or law firms to represent their firms. This is a great opportunity for someone with the skill set and desire to learn and develop at a faster pace than at much larger firms. An entrepreneurial attitude is desirable and business development is strongly encouraged and rewarded.
