Profile

We are seeking an associate litigation attorney.

Description of Duties

We're looking for someone with civil litigation experience who can take over cases and handle them with minimal supervision. We do not expect you to know everything; but you need to be able to (i) know how to look up what you don't know, (ii) know that you don't know something and need to look, and (iii) be able and willing to ask someone else in the firm when you need help. This person will be expected to handle discovery, briefing, arguing motions before courts and arbitrators, etc. You will also be involved in a team on larger, more complex cases.

More About the Position

This position is almost entirely remote. You will be expected to work from home most of the time. You will need your own working space at home (or some other location you supply) and a solid, fast, internet connection. You may need to make trips to go to court, visit clients, take depositions, etc. You would not need to visit an office unless it is related to a client meeting or deposition.

Your hours will generally by 9-5 Monday through Friday, but because the work is remote you will have some flexibility if you need to take time off during the week occasionally for personal reasons. The primary goal is for you to complete your work timely.

Requirements

  • Active California law license
  • High proficiency with computers and computer systems
  • Ability to work remotely at home
  • At least two years of civil litigation experience OR significant trial experience (civil or criminal)
  • An outgoing personality. You need to enjoy speaking with clients and be relatable.
  • Willingness to learn new areas of law. Our areas of practice span multiple jurisdictions and include many diverse areas of consumer protection law (state and federal). You must become conversant in these areas to litigate the cases for our clients.
  • Understanding and familiarity with your state’s rules of civil procedure and the Federal rules of civil procedure
  • Ability to handle a large case load. This means you must be highly organized and efficient in working your assigned cases.

Preferred

  • Additional bar licenses, preferably in one or more of the following states (Georgia, New York, Texas)
  • Experience in conducting trials and/or arbitrations
  • Experience and knowledge in one or more of the following
    • EFAA, TILA, EFTA, and the corresponding regulations
    • Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
    • Class Action procedure and litigation

Interview & Hiring

Applicants will be asked to participate in multiple Zoom chats, provide writing samples, and provide references. Applicants that we wish to hire will need to complete a conflict screen and execute a confidentiality agreement (not noncompete).

Salary & Benefits

  • $130,000 per year salary. Health insurance is available.
  • Bonuses based on objective criteria. Bonuses are not capped and are designed to allow highly successful litigators to greatly exceed their base salary.
  • Work from home. You must have a home office in which you can work without interruption. You will not be required to travel to an office daily. You may be required to travel for court appearances and for other tasks that require you to be present in-person.
  • Flexible hours. If you complete your work timely and meet deadlines you will be permitted to select your own working schedule.
