We are seeking to fill TWO ATTORNEY POSITIONS. The associate position is for a civil litigator with 3 to 5 years’ experience, preferably in personal injury law. The Senior associate position is for a lawyer with civil litigation and jury trial experience.
Where do you see yourself, professionally, five years from now? If that vision includes the challenge, responsibility, and reward of helping run a topnotch plaintiff’s firm, this is the right opportunity for you. We have an open partnership track. If you have excellent legal skills and an entrepreneurial spirit, we should talk.
The Efron Firm is growing. We are looking for talented employees to join our team. The Efron firm has never advertised or promoted its services through websites. For over forty years we have been thriving through word of mouth referrals from satisfied clients and lawyers in other specialties.
We are a four-lawyer Portola Valley practice primarily handling plaintiffs’ personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, government entity liability, construction disputes and insurance bad faith cases. Our firm is top-rated AV, preeminent, by fellow lawyers and judges. It has held this highest rating and honor for over 35 years. We are looking for talented attorneys, paralegals, and secretaries.
This is an opportunity to develop your own cases and client following. Start on the ground floor and grow with our firm. We are ready to train and mentor our firm’s next generation.
We are not looking for attorneys with a book of business. There is plenty of work here. You will be responsible for developing the cases assigned to you from start to finish.
We are a collegial group of experienced litigators who support each other in myriad ways, especially when formulating case strategies. In the associate position, you must be ready to interview and educate injured clients, track down and acquire evidence, craft settlement demands, negotiate with claims professionals and opposing counsel, propound discovery, take and defend depositions, write and argue motions, use expert witnesses efficiently, negotiate liens, mediate and ultimately help try cases. The senior associate should be ready to take cases to trial and train second chair associates.
We generally consider attorneys with experience in our firm’s specialty. But we can make an exception for lawyers with 3-5 years of practice who demonstrate a solid understanding of negligence law and the positive role that tort lawsuits play in society.
Compensation is commensurate with skills and experience. We are competitive with firms of our size and legal emphasis. Full time employees receive group health insurance and the opportunity to participate in the firm’s generous profit-sharing plan.
What Sets Us Apart
Almost all of our new clients come to us by referral from former clients. We have never advertised or promoted on electronic media. Since our firm thrives based on achieving excellent results and our clients’ satisfaction, we are focused on the quality of our representation rather than the quantity of cases we can close. Our commitment to excellence makes this a rewarding environment to work in if you are looking to make a positive impact on client’s lives.
Our office is located in scenic Portola Valley. We work in a country setting, just 5 minutes from Highway 280 and ten minutes from Stanford Shopping Center. There is always plenty of parking. The trail head to the Windy Hill Reserve and Trail System is a short walk away.
