Careers

From the moment you step into any of our office locations, you realize we are not your typical law firm.  You won’t see stuffy boardrooms or leather clubs collecting dust; what you will see are energetic lawyers dressed comfortably and working hard for their clients.  You will see collaborations taking place and entrepreneurial minds thinking outside the box to create common sense solutions to complex problems.

Our offices are filled with people who want to put energy and ideas into everything they do, who want to do things differently.  To keep that energy high - we seek the talented, the exceptional, the experienced and the entrepreneur.  When we find them, we offer a great working environment, competitive compensation,  full benefits and the opportunity to work at a law firm that recognizes that it doesn’t take a three-piece suit to make an outstanding attorney.


Who you should be: hard working, detailed oriented, analytical, entrepreneurial and one who never says “it’s not my job.”

Why you should work here: competitive compensation, exceptional benefits package, paid parking or bus pass, flexible time off policy- did we mention amazing office locations? And we throw one mean summer block party.
