Higgins, Hopkins, McLain & Roswell, LLC is looking to add a new associate to our construction law practice. Our firm has always focused on construction law and the litigation of construction claims, so a background in engineering or construction would be beneficial. We are not necessarily looking for someone with previous legal experience, just someone who is licensed to practice law in Colorado, and who is willing to roll up his or her shirtsleeves and get to work. We have a lot of trials and arbitrations on the calendar for the next year to two years, and will need an associate to participate in all facets of a litigation practice.
Instead of assigning new associates to the same, repetitive task in each case, we typically assign a new associate to a new file and mentor him or her on all aspects of that case as it proceeds through the initial investigation and pleading stages, written and testimonial discovery, motions practice and, eventually, trial or arbitration. To be successful a candidate, you must be an optimist, well spoken, have exceptional research and writing skills, and be able to think on your feet. Given that our files are very document-intensive, you must be very organized and detail-oriented.
For additional information about our firm, please peruse this blog and visit our website. To apply for the position, please send a cover letter, resume, unofficial transcript, and writing sample by regular mail to David M. McLain, Esq., Higgins, Hopkins, McLain & Roswell, LLC, 100 Garfield Street, Suite 300, Denver, CO 80206. We will be collecting resumes through the end of July.
