About the Opportunities

Start your legal career as an associate with Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers

New associates provide general support for the lawyers in the Firm, working with them on existing files, having direct client contact and a significant role in each file on which they work. Mentoring new lawyers to grow into successful, balanced and experienced lawyers is our ultimate goal. To achieve this goal, each associate is paired with a partner. In addition, Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers has an open door policy for its associates, encouraging associates to ask questions and generate an open dialogue about how best to serve client needs.

Through the exposure to a variety of the Firm’s lawyers and practice areas, associates will gradually develop a niche practice of their own, whether that is becoming involved in an existing practice area or building something entirely new for the Firm. Associates are encouraged to give feedback about the areas of the law that interest them and that they wish to explore further. Every effort is made to accommodate and assist the associate in this process.

Associates are reviewed at least annually to ensure that the associate is always aware of his or her progress. Areas discussed during review include: practice area interests and development, quality of work product, Firm involvement, strengths and areas for improvement and progress toward partnership.
