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, and be willing to relocate to Sacramento if not from the area.
Associate base compensation is determined by class year and substantive experience, and salary for attorneys at the level of experience indicated ranges from $152,000.00-$198,000.00. Bonus consideration is given for productivity and performance. Information about training, mentoring, and benefits may be found here. 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.
