Our client, Thomas Law, is a small firm based in Fairfax, VA that is growing and looking to add an Associate Attorney to their team. 

Outside of mandated court appearances, the position is 100% remote so you have to be happy working on Zoom with a small, close knit and happy remote team. This is a client-facing/interacting position with legal support so you can focus on truly practicing law and counseling our clients.

Aside from the technical requirements, here is how you naturally work:
  • You tend to research in depth.
  • You maintain order, follow processes and identify inconsistencies.
  • You navigate uncertainty rather well.
  • You meet deadlines but can flex to changing priorities or last minute requests.
  • You are able to think and respond on your feet and do it with ease.
  • You love the details and thrive on having multiple balls in the air at once.
  • Quality matters to you in every client interaction- writing and in person.
Responsibilities:
  • Conduct legal research, prepare for and attend hearings and/or other legal proceedings, and provide legal counsel with the help of senior attorneys.
  • Collaborate with clients and other staff to move cases toward resolution efficiently.
  • Prepare correspondence and legal documents such as contracts, pleadings, briefs, affidavits, motions, and settlement agreements for contract negotiations and proceedings.
  • Review client issues on legal matters, analyze available options, and diligently work to determine the best course of action.

The technology we use includes: Zoom; Office 365: Word, Outlook, Excel, One Drive, Teams and SharePoint; Adobe; and Clio.

This is a position where you can truly just be a practicing attorney.  There is not much administrative time and you will not be overburdened with a ton of meetings, outside of our daily team check in’s (5-10 minutes), weekly case review (1 hour) and a monthly virtual luncheon.

Qualifications:
  • You have been there, done that, and have excellent research and writing skills.  State court litigation experience a must.  Federal court litigation experience a plus!  
  • You can litigate a case in a Virginia court with minimal oversight, outside of case analysis and check-ins.
  • You essentially can be handed a file and run with it.
  • 3-6 years’ related litigation experience, preferably in a medium to large firm, as only @ 20% of our cases are transactional in nature.  So, you have to be good at all the moving parts and pieces included with litigation.
  • JD from accredited school of law
  • Member of the Virginia bar in good standing; DC and/or MD bar license(s) a plus!
  • Strong writing skills
  • Effective communication skills and problem-solving skills
  • Must be able and willing to travel for occasional court appearances/depositions and litigate business cases
A few other things you should know:
  • Standard work hours: 9:30 am – 5:30 pm, but we are flexible! 
  • No set billable hours as a goal; rather we focus on finding the right solutions to our clients’ problems and providing stellar, responsive and timely communication to clients.
  • You will have legal assistant support- full time!
