Careers

Associate Attorneys

 

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
