Job Description:

Full-Time Remote, Associate Attorney (Transactional) - Must Be Licensed in State of Georgia, United States You know you re a great attorney; you just haven t found the right fit for where you want to be to continue to build your career. You provide excellent client care along with high-quality work product. You want to be at a firm that values what you bring to the table and allows you to actually enjoy the practice of law.
Perhaps you are a solo attorney with your own small firm. Though you like the idea of being your own boss, you now realize that you don t want all that comes with running your own firm. It s a lot. Yes, you can do it, but . . you just don t want to anymore. The demands of both owning and operating a law firm no longer align with how you want to live your life.
Maybe you took the Big Law route and now realize that it is not where you want to be long-term. You re exhausted . You can t make it through another 2,200 billable hour year and wouldn t want to even if you could. The work you ve been doing is kinda . . meh . . and definitely not worth all of the sacrifices you re making in your personal life to do it.
The bottom line: you just want to be an amazing lawyer, but don t want to spend your every waking hour lawyering. You want to help clients, deliver amazing service and enjoy yourself while doing it.
