We are a thriving, boutique family law firm with offices in Pleasanton and Oakland (we are all currently working remotely due to COVID). We are looking to add the right person to our team. Our founding partner is a member of the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and a certified family law specialist. That means we do the highest quality legal work. We don’t cut corners, we don’t churn files, and we genuinely care about our clients. We value our relationships with local judges, opposing counsel, other family law attorneys and their staff, as well as our local communities. Each one of us knows the firm has high expectations stemming from its stellar reputation, and that makes us proud to work here. Each of us has a clear sense of perspective and we value one another and each person’s input and expertise. Despite our high expectations, we are a friendly and relaxed office. Nurturing our relationships as friends as much as colleagues is very important to us. We understand that life is about more than just work.

The person we’re looking for doesn’t just want any job – they want to be part of a firm that produces top-quality family law work. That person needs to be available full-time, share our values, take pride in their work, be open-minded and friendly, and be willing to pitch in to help others.

Does this sound like you? If so, we want to hear from you! Please reply to this post and:
1. Provide a copy of your resume.
2. Include a cover letter that tells us why you want this particular job at our particular firm.

If your background does not include prior family law experience, please also tell us why you are looking to make the transition to family law.
