Daily duties will include drafting and filing routine motions, reviewing discovery including DUI videos, attending court appearances, conducting field investigations, interviewing witnesses, and documenting case files.--

You will adhere to high expectations for professionalism, five-star client service, team-based casework, creative problem-solving, and meticulous, process-oriented workflows.

As a startup firm, we will also need your help in developing best practices for training the team members we hire after you.--



Your start date could be as early as August (after you have completed the bar exam) and your compensation will start at $51,600. After you've passed the bar and completed a 90-day probationary period, your compensation will increase to $67,200 as a licensed attorney. At your six-month performance review, if your employment continues with our firm, your compensation will raise to $74,400 and future raises will be based on performance.
