Job Description

We are an Estate Planning and Asset Protection Law Firm and our mission are to help our clients preserve and protect their family, assets, and ultimately, their legacy.

Our down-to-earth approach requires that everyone is included as a critical part of the team. Your suggestions and opinions about how to serve our clients better are not just welcome but are required as we are constantly striving to grow and improve. We also expect you to have this kind of GROWTH mindset – both personally and professionally.

We are looking for a sharp Estate Planning and Probate Associate with 3+ years of relevant experience who can handle Probate files from opening through close.

Compensation: $72,000 - $90,000 yearly (with quarterly bonuses) Depending on Prior Relevant Experience, Skills, Effort, and other Key Performance Indicators.


$72,000 - $90,000 yearly


The ideal candidate MUST be able to work independently. You must be able to handle working with several different databases of information and we expect you to move a client file from start to finish while remaining within deadlines and delegating necessary work to others on the team, including other Partner Attorneys.

We are looking for a person who is organized, process-oriented, and can manage our clients’ matters without details falling through the cracks. If you do not possess these skills, please do not apply.

This is a client-facing position. You will be dealing directly with clients and responsible for communicating with other counsel/advisors so you must be reasonably personable and understand that the practice of law is a service industry. We are here to serve our clients so they must LIKE to work with you. All our clients must have the same “Wow!” experience. If clients complain about your attitude or demeanor, this isn’t going to be a good fit for you.

At an absolute minimum, you should have a strong work ethic, common sense/good judgment, a professional appearance, and most importantly, a POSITIVE demeanor.

Is this an easy job? No. But, we believe that anything great is worth working for, and our most significant growth comes from the biggest challenges...
