Migliaccio & Rathod LLP (“M&R”) – a private public interest law firm in Washington D.C. with a practice focused on class action litigation, principally in the areas of Consumer Protection and Wage Theft – seeks a Mid-Level Associate. This is a rare opportunity for an attorney with three or more years of post-law school experience to become an integral part of a busy practice.
About the Job
The Mid-Level Associate will be fully integrated in litigation of our cases. Responsibilities may include investigating potential cases; handling discovery; taking and defending depositions; drafting pleadings, briefs and motions; participating in settlement negotiations and mediations; attending hearings; communicating with clients; and other tasks as assigned.
We are looking for a bright and energetic attorney with three or more years of experience and with an interest in the work we do. Strong analytical, writing, research, and communication skills are a must. A qualified candidate should also be detail oriented and able to prioritize multiple projects and effectively solve problems while remaining calm in deadline-driven situations. Fluency in Spanish is preferred.
Compensation and Benefits
M&R presently takes all of its cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means that the firm does not charge clients contemporaneously for attorneys’ fees, but rather, seeks to recover attorneys’ fees from corporate defendants only when a case is successfully resolved. Hence, pay for attorneys is constrained by the nature of this contingency fee practice, which enables the firm to serve its mostly working-class clientele at no out-of-pocket cost to them. Pay will be at a base salary of $90,000 a year with eligibility for bonuses, which may be substantial. Associates are also eligible for an annual holiday bonus and annual pay raise.
Benefits: Health Insurance (including dental and vision), retirement plan, 20 days vacation
