This position works out of our Richmond, Virginia office. The City of Richmond frequently appears on many "best cities to live" list because of it’s affordable cost of living, beautiful river with outdoor experiences, dozens of breweries, great neighborhoods, and robust economy.
This opening is for an Associate Attorney position that primarily practices in General District Court. This will include handling mostly Traffic cases (DUI, Reckless Driving, Speeding etc.) and misdemeanor criminal defense (drug possessions). It is a great position for someone that wants to develop their trial skills because you are in court, on your feet, five days per week and you meet most judges, prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys in Central Virginia. Although we’d love to make a permanent connection, we understand this position is a good stepping stone to handling more serious criminal cases or developing the skills to continue in any type of trial practice after a few years.
Qualified candidates will be self-motivated, organized, have the ability to work independently, and possess a willingness to make regular court appearances in a 50 mile radius of Richmond (we provide a company car and gas card). You must also type a minimum of 65 words per minute (it's a fast-paced environment and you need to make notes about cases quickly). Also, you obviously must have an active Virginia bar license. Recent bar admittees are welcome to apply as well as those with experience in criminal defense or as public defenders.
Compensation package includes mostly a base salary plus bonuses, bar dues, malpractice insurance, 50% of employee’s health insurance, gas card, use of company car, retirement plan, dental, vision, life insurance, CLE’s, holidays and paid-time off, some professional organization dues.
The Core Values of our firm are:
-Nothing freaks us out,
-All clients from any background,
-Requirements are just the start, and
-We think like owners
Life is short and we believe you should enjoy what you do and the people you do it with. This is a professional environment and our mission is to provide access to the legal system to people who might not otherwise get it and to provide opportunities to grow to our team.
If you strive to be a top caliber lawyer and our core values speak to you, then we encourage you to apply. Include your resume with a cover letter that states your typing speed and your SALARY REQUIREMENT. Title of the email should read "TRAFFIC ATTORNEY RICHMOND". Resumes without these items will not be considered for the position.
