A small law firm in Central Texas is seeking an associate attorney with 0-5 years of experience who can jump right in to a heavy case load with strong support from two partners with a combined 40+ years of experience. Cases will consist mainly of family law cases to start, with the opportunity to grow into other areas as the firm expands. Must be a member in good standing with the Texas Bar. Federal licensure a bonus.
Job Duties: Handle cases from initial intake through mediation or trial. Draft pleadings (whether from forms or from scratch, depending on the circumstances), discovery requests and responses, litigation, informal and formal settlement conferences, mediation, counseling clients on applicable laws.
Qualifications: Texas Bar license. Strong organizational skills, strong multi-tasking skills, strong writer, excellent communication skills, knowledge of Texas Civil Procedure and Rules of Evidence, knowledge of Texas Courts and Local Rules. Knowledge of Texas Family Code not necessarily required, but certainly a bonus. Experience with Clio, TxDocs, and/or Microsoft Office a bonus. Strong research skills and court room advocacy are a necessity.
The ideal candidate is a quick learner, hard worker, and is looking for an opportunity for long-term growth in a small firm, and truly wants to help our clients and the firm achieve success.
