Open Position Announcements – January 2018!

Divorce & Family Law Associate

We are beginning our search for a divorce and family law associate attorney with at least one year of domestic relations experience.

  • Candidate must have courtroom experience, and ability to effectively handle motions and other hearings.
  • Dynamic team player who thrives in a small boutique environment with supportive colleagues.
  • Skilled communicator, well-developed writing skills.
  • Motivated self-starter.
  • Good understanding of financial issues related to domestic relations.
  • Mediation and/or Collaborative Certification is a plus, but this position will absolutely involve contested, court-based cases in Norfolk and surrounding counties.

A candidate with local ties to the area is preferred. If you have an entitled attitude and do not understand the business realities of a small law firm, or are unwilling to learn, then this is not a good match.  Seeking someone with a down to earth, friendly personality to provide superior client service and play well with others.

This could be a great opportunity for the solo practitioner tired of the stress of working alone without any back-up or support.


Please email your resume, cover letter (and your law school transcript only if practicing less than three years) to smcdonough@nextphaselegal.com. All applications held in strict confidence.
