Background: My law firm has been in business since 2011 and is approaching the 10 year mark. Before I hit that mark however, I would like to grow by adding additional like-minded lawyers to the firm at the partner, of-counsel, or member level. I've had many associates over the years, but most have left for higher paying jobs before they were at the level where they were able to develop their own book of business. So I'm seeing if this route will work instead.
Qualifications: Any NY licensed lawyer can apply for this position, whether they be newly admitted or many years out. The only requirements are that you be self-sustaining, ambitious, and have a normal and kind personality. Self-sustaining means that you are not dependent on earnings (for example, you are part of a dual-income household, or live at home, or have savings, or have a book of business that will sustain you). Ambitious means that you are eager to get clients and create a successful firm. Finally, normal and kind means you are well-grounded, whether that be by family, friends, or other loved ones. Please note, knowing how to rainmake is not necessary; I will train you. Nor is any particular type of experience in a particular type of field required. Every field of law has something in common; we'll find that commonality.
Profile: My profile on my website gives you an insight into the type of person I am. Please take a look.
Tentative: I understand this ad is unorthodox. There is no expectation of blind commitment. The ad is only an invitation to have a conversation and to see if there are any other ambitious lawyers out there that want to practice the way I do. I enjoy building a business and practicing law. I hope you do too.
