Employment Type Full-Time
MARIETTA FAMILY LAW FIRM SEEKS ASSOCIATE
We are seeking an associate who is passionate about helping parents going through a divorce and protecting fathers’ rights to be an equally present parent in their child's life.
We are not your typical small law firm. Our entrepreneurial law firm is poised for aggressive growth, and we’re looking for an attorney who can hit the ground running to give our clients outstanding representation. Ideal candidates have 5 or more years of experience as lawyers in family law, or who have strong litigation experience and can demonstrate the ability to learn quickly.
We are looking for a team player willing to take ownership of a client's case, including direct contact with clients and opposing counsel, drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, and handling mediations and conferences, pretrial hearings, and trials. You need to have strong skills in the following areas: research, writing, courtroom presentation, and common technology.
Skills and experience are appreciated and valued, and certainly considered, but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are also extremely important considerations. High-maintenance, humorless, self-entitled, or self-important individuals will not succeed in this position and need not apply.
Salary is commensurate with skill and experience and is negotiable. There will be opportunities for merit bonuses.
If this exciting opportunity appeals to you, we look forward to reviewing your resume. Please follow these instructions. APPLICATIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Prepare a cover letter with no more than two paragraphs and a single closing sentence. In the first paragraph explain what you believe are the 3 most important qualities that must be possessed by an attorney working with people experiencing divorce. In the second paragraph tell me why you applied to this particular ad. As a closing sentence please write, “I have read the instructions contained in the job posting and have followed the instructions.” Do not send your resume through the job posting site. Email your resume and cover letter in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line of the email should your last name (all caps), followed by a hyphen and the word “associate,” followed by one word that you would use to describe yourself (lower case).
