Our 60-year old firm is thriving with the addition of nearly 20 new employees (attorneys and staff) over the past two years.  As an equal opportunity employer, we continue to seek experienced lawyers and support staff to take leadership roles in established and still-growing practice areas. If you are a lateral attorney, you will appreciate our democratic approach and enjoy a high degree of autonomy.  Please contact us to inquire.


Our culture is what separates us from the pack. It is performance based yet considerate of a healthy work-life balance. We share an unrelenting drive to exceed our clients’ expectations and deliver them more peace of mind and time to focus on the things that matter most – their families, businesses and personal well-being. Our rallying cry is Expect More, Get More. To do this, we rely heavily on collaboration, our collective experience and diversity.


We offer a comprehensive benefits package, a professional and friendly atmosphere and competitive salaries. We also offer reduced or part-time schedules and part-time partnerships. Our core benefits package includes: comprehensive health/dental insurance for families, a 401K savings plan (with a firm match), vacation, paid time off, family leave and a healthcare reimbursement plan.
