Associate Attorney

This job requires imaginative, creative and analytical thinking, with a strong motivation for finding solutions to aligning the law with complex family scenarios. The approach to work is systematic and patient, characterized by introspection and the development of new ideas. Sufficient opportunity to express and act on these new ideas is very important. Your communication style will be factual and authoritative when discussing matters in your area of expertise, and you may be quiet and reserved with those outside your inner work circle. Most of your work will be done on your own, but you will interface with others on a project basis. The job requires a deliberate, unhurried pace, providing plenty of time for serious introspection to be sure you get it right. Most of your decisions will be made alone because you’re an expert and you don’t require consistent input. If the job requires delegation, you will follow-up closely to assure the accuracy of the work.
