Associate Attorney

Who are you: You are well on your way to becoming a superstar attorney and you prefer to do the legal work versus the business side of the law. You are a go-getter with drive and an ability to learn quickly, but you check your ego at the door and are willing to help.  You are technologically adept and able to handle many moving parts with style and grace but can have a bulldog mentality when needed.  You can handle changes to routine effortlessly and like to improve along the way. And, you are detailed oriented, great with follow-up and your friends and family agree on your trustworthiness and dependability. If you have experience with plaintiff personal injury or family law, that’s even better. Louisiana bar license required.

What will you do:  You will help our small staff in multiple ways by becoming our number two for plaintiff personal injury and family law cases, helping manage the caseload, move cases towards a successful conclusion, and providing the care and compassion our clients expect.  You will provide guidance and recommendations directly to clients, work with medical providers and other necessary parties in injury cases from pre-litigation through litigation stages including but not limited to: initial interviews and investigations, monitoring and advising on medical and other client concerns, negotiating with insurance adjusters and others, obtaining statements and other helpful information needed for successful resolution of cases, through filing petitions, conducting depositions, preparing and responding to motions, discovery, and other necessary trial work.  You will provide direction and assistance to our intake team for new potential cases and help our growing firm establish and follow best practices.  You may follow up on representation agreements, scheduled appointments, and ensuring callers and clients are treated with compassion and care. You will utilize our case management system to ensure our cases are flowing properly and you will be primarily responsible for getting cases ready for settlements, hearings, and trials.   You will work hard and become a valuable asset on our team! Prior injury or family law experience is great but not necessary.

Who are we: We are a small law firm growing to meet our client demand.  We are based in Luling, Louisiana alongside the Mississippi River with easy access to I-310 and the entire metro area.  We have a second office in Metairie (by appointment only).  We are growing because of the care we show to our clients, our ability to connect with potential clients, and the results we achieve. We have great client reviews because of the compassion we exhibit, and we expect the same from all of our team. We effectively use technology to communicate with our clients and maintain our “PAPER-LESS” office. We offer a great quality of life and a friendly atmosphere. 

For the outstanding candidate selected, our firm offers semi-flexible scheduling, PTO, and 401(k) after 90 days.  Pay dependent upon experience and potential.
