Howard Stallings is an equal-opportunity employer. We seek self-motivated individuals who want to experience the challenge of a sophisticated legal practice in a firm that also values the quality of life of its employees.
Hiring decisions for associates and summer clerks are made by the partners of the firm based upon recommendations from the recruiting committee. You may contact the chair of the recruiting committee, Brian E. Moore, for more information.
The firm hires paralegals, office assistants, receptionists, and other support staff on an as-needed basis. If you are interested in applying for an opening with our firm, you may contact our office for more information.
Associates can expect that early in their career they will have significant client contact and case management responsibility. This additional responsibility is balanced with readily available supervision and guidance from the firm’s principals. The “open door” policy of our senior attorneys provides a valuable training ground and mentoring experience for our new associates.
The annual minimum billable goal that our associates are expected to achieve is reasonable and attainable. Associates who exceed this goal qualify for a bonus.
Our firm has traditionally hired at least one summer clerk each year to work on a variety of matters during the summer following the second year of law school. Our summer program is for the full summer. We allow our summer clerks to work on projects of real importance, and we incorporate our summer clerks into the work of the law firm with as much responsibility as their skills and experience will allow.
Because our program encourages collaboration with people within several different practice areas, it provides both a valuable learning experience and an opportunity for summer clerks to fully assess their compatibility with the work and their colleagues as they consider their options for future full-time employment with our firm.
Our firm operates through teams of paralegals, attorneys and office assistants. Each paralegal works in conjunction with one or more attorneys to meet our clients’ needs. In turn, office assistants work with our paralegals to perform non-billable, clerical tasks, and run errands outside of the office. This team approach is designed to provide our clients with efficient services, while allowing our staff to work together to maximize each person’s potential.
