A Little About Us
We are a busy plaintiff’s personal injury firm located on the southside of Chicago with a second office in Northwest Indiana. We pride ourselves on providing superlative legal work and customer service. We use cutting edge technology in all aspects of our practice.

You must have drafted and argued motions, taken depositions and ideally, taken cases to jury trial. The compensation package will be tailored to your level of experience, but will involve a base salary plus a percentage of your results. While this is an associate position, we are always willing to hire trial lawyers laterally and will pay accordingly.
You must be proficient in Microsoft Office suite as well as Adobe. You must be comfortable in learning and using our case management system, Smart Advocate. If you don’t have experience in some specific items, be forthright and honest. You will learn how to do all of these things.

Show us, don’t tell us. We do a thorough job in the hiring process to ensure the right people work for the firm and maintain the firm culture. If you make it through the hiring process, we expect you will work here for a long time. We treat our employees well. We encourage personal and professional growth which makes working here rewarding.
