Dorman, Bell & Kramer, LLP is not your typical law firm. We do not focus the recruitment of our lawyers on only top-tier law schools, those who graduated in the top 10% of their class, or those who had prominent clerkships. If you are looking for a minimum billing requirement that you can compare to your colleagues to measure your worth to the firm, you are probably looking at the wrong place. Likewise, we are not looking for the tireless paralegal or legal assistant who needs the rigors of the big law firm to feel important. While we value top grades and a tireless work effort, we are looking for more.
Much more than the amount of work that you can put out, we are concerned about quality. Do you have meaningful life experience that will help you build quality relationships with clients and colleagues? Do you have a meaningful education, combined with real world experience that will help you product quality work for our clients? Are you interested in having a high quality of life? If so, we could be looking for you. We are looking for people who want to enjoy time with their families, their colleagues, and who want to enjoy what they do each day. We believe this is much more important to producing a quality result for our clients than the name of your law school.
Admittedly, our law firm is not for everyone. Here, you will be a part of a team that builds superior relationships with clients, and you will be judged not by the school that you went to or how long you were in the office, but by the results that you achieve.
