Myers Law is Hiring an Attorney. Come Make a Difference

Myers Law is looking to hire an associate attorney.  Bringing on another attorney is necessary to fulfill our mission of making big change for Ohio consumers–on individual cases, class actions, and through new consumer protections.  Candidates must be interested in helping every-day consumers fight against bad businesses.  For a description of the work that we do, and clients that we assist, check out our website.

This position requires a task-oriented team member who has excellent organizational skills, is detail oriented, is able to solve problems, have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, and experience scheduling with Google Calendar.  Email and technological proficiency (laptop use, office software use, webmail, social media use, and ability to learn new programs, systems, and software) is a must.  Reliable transportation is also a must.

If you are interested in applying, please submit an application via email to Info@MyersLawLLC.com.  The Subject line should be “Associate Attorney Position” and the email should contain no more than two paragraphs about why you are interested in working at Myers Law.  As an attachment, you should include the following:

  1. Your Resume;
  2. A writing sample of a dispositive motion that you drafted (some assistance from others on editing is permissible), preferably motion to dismiss or summary judgment motion (without exhibits);
  3. Optional: if you write a blog that you are willing to share, include a link to that blog in your email.

ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY

Must meet one or more of the following criteria:  (1) 1 year experience in a litigation practice (preferably Plaintiff-side); (2) recent graduate (cum laude or better) with clinical experience; (3) recent graduate (cum laude or better) with clerking experience at a litigation practice.  Must also be licensed and in good standing in Ohio.

We are looking for an associate attorney who can help us advocate for our consumer and employment clients.  This is a salaried position, with base salary ranging, based on experience, from $35,000 to $45,000, with other other incentive and bonus opportunities based on matters brought in by the attorney, meaning that if the attorney brings in additional matters and clients, their is no maximum cap on their earning potential.  Candidates are expected to work in the office between 40-50 hours per week, occasional (rare) additional hours as needed.

Myers Law offers some matching contributions toward a Simple-IRA, and reimbursement of certain profession-related expenses.

We support our attorneys in bringing in new clients and engaging in marketing, and will pay for membership in a local business networking group (not a Chamber of Commerce) of our choosing to assist the attorney in making connections that can help bring in additional clients that we can assist.

This position will involve a large amount of legal writing (motions, briefs, pleadings, discovery requests and responses), some research, involvement in drafting discovery requests and editing responses, client communication, and some court attendance and litigation, including travel to certain Northeast Ohio Courts.  Candidates will be expected to work in our office location.  Candidates should be able to efficiently use, and be proficient with,  Lexis Advance.  Duties may vary from time to time.  If you have experience with Clio for practice management, that will be a plus.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please email Alise at Info@MyersLawLLC.com as outlined at the top of this page.
