We provide opportunities for our associates to develop hands-on litigation experiences from investigation stage to appellate practices, including brief and motion writing, analyzing complex factual situations, creating digests of facts to present to court, contributing to an appellate brief, arguing discovery and/or dispositive motions, and providing strategic direction on several matters. We encourage our team members to become avid learners and develop holistic understandings of litigation, instead of being a cog in the machine.  Our litigation attorneys are graduates of top universities, including N.Y.U., Yale, Stanford, and University of Virginia. 

A Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Environment

DGW Kramer LLP places a high priority on attracting and retaining lawyers with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. This makes us better and happier as people, and as legal advisers.

We are committed to building a cutting-edge practice allowing our employees to work remotely, or at flexible times, to match their work environment with their working style.

Compensation is commensurate with experience. 

To apply to this job, please submit a copy of your CV, a writing sample(s), and two names of professional references.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
