Job Title: Associate

We are seeking a goal-oriented associate attorney to join our team and develop into a top family law attorney with 2 to 6 years of litigation experience. As our associate, you will be trained directly by the principal who has been ranked by her peers as among the top 5% of Illinois Family Law attorneys. You will be involved in all aspects of family law, including parentage, dissolutions, paternity, negotiations, orders of protection, financial settlements, and related family law issues. This is a rare career opportunity as the principal has decided to take on an associate. You will also have exposure to being a child advocate as the principal is routinely appointed by judges as Guardian Ad Litem, Child Representative, and Parenting Coordinator.

Our clients are going through some of the most difficult times of their lives, and they need to lean on their attorney to help make sound decisions. Individuals are vulnerable during a divorce, and while proper boundaries need to be maintained, compassion and decency go a long way. If you want to use your gifts, skills, and talents to help people through a monumental time in their life, then we urge you to apply.

Larimer Law values integrity, empathy, and professionalism, and fosters a supportive and collaborative work environment. Associates receive personalized training and mentoring from a top-ranked family law attorney, and have the opportunity to work on diverse cases and gain courtroom experience.
