DESCRIPTION:

Impeccable judgment, maturity, and ability to self-manage assigned litigation/trial projects are absolute requirements. Ability to maintain an affable yet closely-coordinated professional relationship with colleagues is a must. The position is subject to a 1,750 annual billable hour minimum.

The firm is presently litigating a number of high-profile cases involving public corruption, and the applicant will gain first-hand experience with these matters through litigation and trial. The firm’s primary focus is Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) and Labor Code § 1102.5 retaliation litigation.

We operate a friendly, professional, and no-nonsense working environment conducive to professional and personal growth. We are excellent to each other and to our clients every day.

The position is contemplated to provide ample opportunity for second-chair trial experience, if desired. We are an equal opportunity employer.
