Admission to practice law in one of the following jurisdictions is mandatory: Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, or Washington, DC is mandatory.

The candidate should preferably have the highest level of legal and practical problem-solving skills, strong oral presentation, and client relations acumen.

The firm actually is considered a trend setter in the areas of labor and employment law, and its attorneys are well known for their abilities in this field throughout the United States. Despite this strong expertise, this firm has grown into a powerful full service firm and has strong practice groups in litigation, corporate, tax, government contracts/technology, bankruptcy, immigration, entertainment, environmental, real estate transactions, employee benefits, estate planning and other areas of law. Associates who have interviewed with this firm are impressed with the fact that the firm appears to do extremely good work and is in a serious growth mode. From our observations, the growth of this firm appears to have been very intelligent and deliberate.
