If you’re an experienced Associate Attorney who wants to be an advocate for women, protect families and help them plan for a brighter future, then look no further!  We are a small but rapidly-growing boutique law firm in North Dallas seeking an attorney with 5+ years’ experience in Divorce and Family Law. While we are big enough to offer the security and professional growth opportunities you want, we are still small enough to appreciate the contribution of everyone on our team.

We believe it’s important for everyone to have a safe haven, so we have designed our newly-built office suites to make our guests feel comfortable and secure. You’ll enjoy meeting with your clients and potential new clients in a spacious, uncluttered office that has been tastefully decorated to be warm and inviting. We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients and potential new clients – whether it’s during a consultation, while attending one of the events we host to encourage female businesses and leadership, or in our legal representation of them. We leverage current technology and software programs to ensure a better customer experience, improved communication, ease of research and drafting, and adaptability to the changing court systems.

Our ideal candidate is committed to excellence, with a strong desire to be a voice, guide and advocate for our clients.  You must have the ability to handle yourself in a courtroom but be motivated to apply your creativity and problem-solving skills to find collaborative solutions that avoid the need for litigation. Because you are goal-oriented, focused and have the ability to think long-term, you are not easily rattled by last minute changes or distracted by someone else’s drama. You are strong in body, mind and spirit, value your self-worth and can be a good example to our clients. You are committed to personal and professional growth and proudly take 100% responsibility for what you say and do. You act with integrity, and value it in others.
