Small AV-rated litigation firm seeks senior-level trial lawyer for of counsel position. Details below.

THE FIRM: We are a non-traditional, cloud-based virtual law firm. Most of our lawyers work from home, coming to the office only when needed to meet with clients, take depositions, participate in mediation, etc. There are no billable-hour requirements. We hire only experienced, self-motivated, self-sufficient attorneys capable of handling litigation matters entirely on their own, on their own terms. We have no associates. We consist primarily of former Big Law attorneys looking for more balanced lifestyles. Our practice is focused on business litigation and employment law, but if you have portable business in another area, we can probably accommodate your practice.

THE WORK: Help our clients resolve their legal problems, and represent clients in litigation. This typically entails (1) Handling initial consultations with prospective clients; (2) Litigating and trying cases with little to no supervision (performing legal research, writing briefs, taking and defending depositions, etc.)

THE PAY: Less than you would get at Big Law, but more than you would get just about anywhere else. Our compensation model is completely objective and transparent. No book of business is expected or required, but if you come with your own clients, we'll pay you 80% of the revenue generated by your work. After one year with us, that number climbs to 85%; after two years, 90%. We are able to able to pay such high percentages due to our low overhead. When you practice here, you will not sit at a mahogany desk surrounded by marble columns and expensive artwork (unless that's what your home office is like), but you will bring home a much higher percentage of your billings than you are likely accustomed to doing and will be happier for it. Even if you didn't generate the client on whose matter you are working, we'll pay you 40-50% of collections. For those with no portable business, you can expect roughly $135,000 - $230,000 in a year from working on our existing client matters.

THE INTANGIBLES: (1) Work from the comfort of your home office. (2) No billable-hour requirements. Work as much or as little as you like. (3) No client-development requirements. (4) Remain independent, free to do work for other firms.

THE QUALIFICATIONS: We require: (1) minimum 8 years with the Virginia Bar; (2) extensive experience litigating cases in Virginia state and federal courts; (3) a fully functional home office with printer and scanner; and (4) no history of discipline in any jurisdiction. We prefer, in addition: (1) excellent writing skills; (2) in-depth substantive knowledge in an area of law relevant to our practice; (3) a portable book of business of at least $300,000/year; and (4) experience practicing with an Am Law 200 law firm.

TO APPLY: For consideration, please submit (1) your resume, and (2) a copy of a brief you have written and filed with a Virginia state or federal court.

Job Type: Contract

Salary: $135,000.00 to $250,000.00 /year
