Associate Attorneys

Employment Opportunities:

The Employment Law Practice Group at Boutin Jones is seeking a mid to senior level associate to join its ranks. The attorneys in the Employment Law Practice Group work closely as a team. Associate attorneys can expect to practice at the highest levels of the legal profession. We also provide a collegial work environment and professional development for those interested in becoming a shareholder. Candidates should have at least 3 years of significant experience in employment law and litigation. Class action experience is preferred, but not required. We are also open to the possibility of hiring a second attorney who is interested in advice and counseling exclusively. This is an excellent opportunity for a hard working, smart individual suited to the private practice of law and committed to serving our clients. High class standing from a top-ranked law school required. Qualified candidates may submit their resumes, writing samples, and law school transcripts with a cover letter to .


Does this sound familiar to you? You’re assigned a mentor you have little in common with or never hear from. You’re surrounded by boxes and spend hour after hour looking through documents. You’ve waited years to meet the client for whom you’ve been working. While this may sound familiar to new attorneys at other law firms, it’s not the experience new attorneys have at Boutin Jones. We don’t talk about mentoring programs—we spend time developing associates because we enjoy it and it’s the right thing to do. We are the ideal size to make sure associates have engaging work and learn from more experienced attorneys. We aren’t afraid to let associates work directly with our clients. If you’re not sure all that is possible, we invite you to speak with one of our associates.

During the interview process, I was amazed with how protective they were with the culture they’ve created here. I quickly became more and more attached as I got to know the people. – Ashley Connell, associate attorney at Boutin Jones
