Family Law Attorney
Who you are: First and foremost, you love helping people with their family law issues (divorce, custody, community property, adoptions, etc.). We envision you are well on your way to becoming a superstar attorney and you prefer to do the legal work versus the business side of the practice (you know – the marketing, collections, etc.). You are a go-getter with drive and an ability to learn quickly, but you also see things through to the end. You are technically adept and able to handle many moving parts with style and grace. You can have a bulldog mentality when needed but you are not a jerk. You can handle changes to routine effortlessly and like to improve along the way. And, you are detailed oriented, great with follow-up, and your clients, friends, and family agree on your trustworthiness and dependability. Louisiana bar license required.
What you will do: You will handle a growing docket of family law cases including hearings, client meetings, preparing motions and discovery, and generally helping manage the caseload, move cases towards a successful conclusion, and provide the care and compassion our clients expect. You will provide guidance and recommendations directly to clients, work with other necessary parties in family law cases from filings through final judgments and beyond, including but not limited to: initial interviews and investigations, monitoring and advising on other client concerns, negotiating with opposing counsel, and others, obtaining statements and other helpful information needed for successful resolution of cases, filing petitions, conducting depositions, preparing and responding to motions, discovery, and other necessary trial work. You will provide direction and assistance to our intake team for new potential cases and help our growing firm establish and follow best practices. You may follow up on representation agreements, scheduled appointments, and ensure callers and clients are treated with compassion and care. You will utilize our case management system to ensure our cases are flowing properly and you will be primarily responsible for the success of our family law practice area. You will work hard and become a valuable asset on our team handling cases across the area and extended area!
Who we are: We are a small firm based in Luling, Louisiana with a second office in Metairie (by appointment only). We serve a diverse clientele and have complimentary practice areas. Our focus is on great results while showing care to our clients, potential clients, and team. We offer a great quality of life and a friendly atmosphere.
