Company: MFR Men's & Fathers' Rights Divorce Lawyers - Schu
Posted on: January 19, 2023
We are a fast-growing divorce and family law firm in Northern NJ
looking for an Exceptional Attorney to join our team to help
prevent legal and parental injustice!
We are looking for a positive and enthusiastic advocate who does
not work by the clock. You can write a motion or legal brief with
flair and clarity, you can develop legal case strategies and legal
theories with no supervision, and you can relate and explain
complicated laws to the client (and your staff) with ease and
grace. Also, for the most part, opposing counsel or experts who
know you, respect your legal abilities and you can get along with
99.9% of those you encounter.
If you are someone who takes pride in your work for your own
benefit (but also understands the firm wants to look good too), has
personal and professional integrity, and is willing to work until
the job is done, including weekends and working nights when
necessary, then you might be the right fit!
It might very well be that you are currently in a role that is just
"okay"; it might be that you have your own law firm (or thought
about it) but don't love the day-to-day management of law practice.
It might be that you are simply bored with your current
circumstances-- or maybe you are yearning for some independence and
autonomy in your area of expertise!

aligns with our mission; we built our law firm around helping
people move forward to where they want to be. -We help find the
opportunities that are all wrapped up in what looks like a problem.

make sure you are never alone, and you are not bound by
time-consuming admin work. With us, -all you have to focus on is
handling the clients and providing outstanding client service along
with your legal brilliance!
We want to help the right person to reclaim (or continue to have)
work/life balance. -We want to help you continue to feel passionate
about the law and helping people find a better life and situation.
- -We want to help you continue to be a great lawyer who also knows
