CAREERS

Surround yourself with exceptional people.

Our work is challenging and rewarding. We look to hire outstanding attorneys and professional staff who value hard work, want to provide exceptional representation, and seek a diverse and intellectually vibrant workplace.

Overview

We are proud to represent individuals and small businesses with challenging and important legal claims. Through the courts, we advocate for those who have been harmed by unsafe, unscrupulous, or discriminatory conduct, often by powerful entities with substantial legal resources. We seek to hold those responsible accountable, while advancing a more just and equitable society.

Our team is nearly 200 strong. We’re from different places and backgrounds, with diverse experiences and points of view. Together, we are committed to creating and sustaining a firm where everyone’s unique identity and ideas are valued. We place a premium on talent—and building a community that allows our people to thrive. We work hard to understand and support each other, and we encourage everyone at the firm to identify, develop, and leverage their strengths. The work is never done, but we are all committed to it. Embracing diversity is crucial to unlocking our true potential. Join us in our efforts to create inclusive spaces both inside and outside our firm. 

Our history is one of steady growth and high-profile cases. A team of three attorneys in 1970 is now more than 100. Along the way, we’ve insisted that our firm grow and change in ways that are consistent with the strong culture we’ve built.
