Associate Attorney

Company: Phil Harvey Law, PLLC
Location: Marion
Posted on: July 5, 2024

Job Description:

Do you have two to five years of experience in criminal defense or prosecution? Are you looking to join a small, growing firm with an opportunity to advance your skills and experience in criminal trial practice? If so, we are looking for you! Our firm is hiring an associate attorney who will assist in all aspects of criminal casework and client care.



The ideal candidate will have two to five years of criminal law experience with at least some trial or preliminary hearing experience and strong legal advocacy skills. If you're ready to jump-start your growth in the industry and learn how to strategize in the courtroom to successfully represent clients, reach out to us today!



As the firm's first-ever Associate Attorney, you will assist with minimal supervision in all aspects of criminal casework and client care. Daily duties will include new client onboarding, motions practice, discovery review, DUI video review, court appearances, case negotiations, and settlements, field investigations, witness interviews, preliminary hearings, client updates, phone consultations, office consultations, and case file upkeep.--



As a regional firm, Phil Harvey will cover most out-of-town court settings, but we will expect you to use your personal vehicle to attend out-of-town court settings as needed, which we will reimburse at the federal mileage rate.--



Listen: We're not like other firms.



You will adhere to high expectations for professionalism, five-star client service, team-based casework, creative problem-solving, and meticulous, process-oriented workflows.--We will give you the support and resources to meet our high standards. Your bar fees, professional privilege tax, and annual CLE requirements will be covered. Your development in handling larger and more serious cases will be encouraged. Our goal for you is to become a self-sufficient trial lawyer capable of first-chairing the most serious trials while also growing in your leadership skills to help associates who come behind you.--



That said, we're also a startup. We will need your help developing best practices to better train the team members we hire after you. And, there will be times when we need you to use your best judgment in handling difficult situations with very little support at the moment. So, if you're a self-starter that likes a challenge, we hope you'll apply.

Responsibilities:
--- Attend court settings, negotiate with prosecutors, and conduct preliminary hearings
--- Evaluate criminal cases for sentencing exposure and defense strategies
--- Advise clients of their rights and options
--- Guide clients in making legal decisions that are best suited to the client's goals considering the exposure and defense strategy of each case
--- Maintain digital files in an organized and detailed fashion to enable team-based delivery of legal services and client communication
--- Adhere to internal law-firm guidelines and standards to ensure consistent, excellent service is given to each client
--- Contribute to the development and implementation of systems, processes, and checklists in a growing law firm that believes in team-based, client-centered representation

Qualifications:
--- Licensed to practice law in Tennessee (please include your B.P.R. Number on your resume)
--- Two to five years of experience in criminal law (defense or prosecution)
--- Willingness to travel throughout West Tennessee as needed
--- Strong commitment to upholding the rights and dignity of every client

About Company:
Do you like a fast-paced and varied work environment? Are you energized by being part of an organization that helps people through some of the most difficult chapters of their lives? Would you like to help build a world-class law firm from the ground up?
