Job Description

Are you ready to embark on a dynamic journey in the realm of law, where every case presents a unique challenge and every victory brings a sense of fulfillment? Our esteemed firm is seeking a passionate and driven Junior Associate Attorney to join our dedicated team. As a Junior Associate, you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in diverse legal matters, honing your skills alongside seasoned professionals while making a tangible impact on the lives of our clients. If you're eager to unleash your potential and thrive in a fast-paced, intellectually stimulating environment, then we invite you to step forward and become an integral part of our firm's continued success.

Our team is made up of exceptional legal minds who thrive in our professional working environment. Our success is driven by collaboration, teamwork, and respect. Additionally, the firm remains steadfast in its commitment to our attorneys in providing the necessary resources, tools, and mentorship opportunities to foster professional and intellectual growth.

Further, the firm makes it a priority to highlight each individual attorney in order to advance their professional status and personal brand within the legal community. As we spotlight our attorneys on the firm's various social media platforms, use our PR team to help garner local and national attention on our attorneys' successes, and more, we drive them into a position of thought leadership within the legal community.

Last but definitely not least, please note that LS Carlson Law is not your typical law firm. We are constantly striving to reach new heights and never settle for second best. By joining our team, you will need to be exceptional at what you do and continually seek growth on a personal and professional level. If you are looking for a job that’s tedious and uninteresting, you should look elsewhere. If you are looking to take your career to the next level in a fast-paced, challenging environment, you’ve found the right place.

Additionally, our primary goal is to cultivate an environment that nurtures the careers of both associates and partners. Embracing a hybrid work model, we afford associates substantial flexibility while fostering a spirit of collaboration within our workspace. Our commitment to an unlimited paid time off (PTO) policy underscores our recognition of the importance of maintaining a harmonious and sustainable professional life.

Upon joining our team, associates can expect to immerse themselves in our culture and forge connections with our colleagues during their initial month, predominantly through in-office presence. Subsequently, a hybrid work schedule is extended, ensuring continuity while providing the flexibility our team members value.

We are determined to achieve greatness in all we do and look forward to expanding our team of disciplined, hard-working professionals who feel the same way.

If that’s not enough, please see the below additional reasons why you should work here!

  • You will become part of an incredibly thought out and united firm culture spearheaded by an attentive firm owner and teammates who are dedicated to ensuring our team and the firm’s success.
  • You will work with teammates across different departments who are happy to help and/or mentor as you grow in your position with our office.
  • You will experience working for a firm that is constantly evolving and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the legal industry.
  • You will become part of an environment that fosters creativity and makes moves to put those creative ideas into motion.
  • You will grow personally and professionally. Every measure is taken to ensure our team members flourish. From one-on-one mentoring opportunities to foster professional growth to employee events to increase camaraderie, we actively work toward the growth of our team.
