  • Our ideal candidate has prior experience working in a small law firm environment or can adapt from a mid-size firm. This means that you are not tied to titles, job descriptions or hierarchies.
  • We are seeking an individual who is extremely confident and capable but who also works well with co-workers and helps them to grow.

  • Our successful employees are also reliable, loyal, trustworthy, honest and self-driven/self-motivated.
  • You will be required to complete a comprehensive background and submit previous work references. A good driving record and no criminal record in any year or any state is required. We have 100% non-smoking work environment.
