We seek talented associates who embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and who we believe would thrive in our culture. As a mid-size law firm, we seek individuals who would aspire to, with our help, develop their own practice. It is our expectation that every associate we hire will become a partner. Our partners are dedicated to providing training and mentoring, in addition to developing relevant projects for every associate.
As an associate, you will not sit behind a desk for years doing research and writing projects. This is an active practice for associates from day one. You will be meeting with clients, attending court hearings, visiting client sites, and gaining the tools and training you need to become a successful lawyer and to develop your own client base.
Our summer associate program is designed to provide students with a rewarding experience that will better prepare them for life as an attorney. The summer at Carlile Patchen & Murphy provides law students an opportunity to see what life is like in a mid-size law firm. As with new associates, we offer more than desk work. Summer associates get experience in every practice group and are invited to attend and participate in hearings, depositions, meetings, and trials.
A mentor is provided for each summer associate to monitor work load and assignments to ensure maximum exposure.
If you are interested in participating in our summer associate program, please contact Alicia Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org
We recognize that our people are the firm’s greatest asset and the foundation of our success. We are proud that our staff turnover rate has been exceptionally low for many years. The current average tenure of legal secretaries and administrative staff is 12 years.
We are large enough to provide good benefits but small enough that everyone knows your name. Our commitment to our people shows in our generous benefit package, including 401(k) contributions, on-site parking, and a health insurance deductible reimbursement plan.
It is our goal to provide challenging and rewarding work that is performed in an environment characterized by a healthy balance between work, family, personal and community commitments. Investing in our employees is vital to our practice and is central to the firm’s strength and ongoing success. Our commitment is reflected in our dedicated long-term staff.
