EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Schell Bray offers the unique combination of a sophisticated law practice with competitive compensation in a smaller firm environment. Our goal is to provide excellent legal services while retaining enough flexibility to allow our attorneys to work at a comfortable pace, develop expertise in their practice areas and have time for professional, civic, charitable, and family activities.

We recruit law students for summer associate and entry-level associate attorney positions. We seek to hire students with superior academic qualifications (typically in the top 20% of their class) and an interest in pursuing a business, real estate, or trusts and estates law practice. While not a strict requirement, we look for participation in a law review or journal and some business education or experience.

Our summer associates work with attorneys in each of our practice areas and participate in client meetings and closings. While we prefer to fill our requirement for entry-level associates through our summer associate program, we will also consider applications from third-year law students.

Occasionally, we recruit experienced attorneys for a position in a specific practice area. Applicants for a lateral position are typically evaluated based on their experience and education in that practice area. We also seek to fill paralegal and other support staff positions as the need arises.
