Downey Brand’s family law practice handles sophisticated family law issues for clients throughout California. We are looking to hire an associate with a distinguished academic record and exceptional research and writing skills. Because family law associates have substantial client contact and make regular court appearances, strong verbal communication skills are required. Applicants also must have significant experience with all aspects of discovery and law and motion practice. Familiarity with basic business valuation principles, financial statements and tax concepts is preferred, but not required. Experience in family law is a plus. Must be a current, active member of the California Bar Association.
Associate salaries are based on years of experience and bonus consideration is given for productivity and/or performance. Please address cover letter, resume, law school transcript, and a brief, recent writing sample that demonstrates the candidate’s analytical skills to Maureen Cooper, Recruiting Director via the firm’s web application.
