At Flaherty, our attorneys and professional staff understand the value of hard work, problem-solving and outstanding client service. Whether you seek a position as a summer clerk, associate, lateral attorney or staff member, we are looking for individuals who are committed to excellence.
We take great pride in our selection process and the recruitment of attorneys into the firm. From first-year law students to seasoned attorneys with substantial experience, Flaherty recruits attorneys with superior academic credentials and a desire for involvement in cases ranging from general legal matters to complex corporate litigation and transactional cases.
We believe active participation is the best way to learn. You won’t find our associates solely assigned to the office or library; Flaherty associates quickly experience the daily activities of practicing lawyers and managing cases.
Associates are given substantial responsibility in handling matters according to their level of expertise. We believe the associate’s role is crucial to provide great value to our clients. Our associates are the future of Flaherty and their development is an absolute priority. Member lawyers, as well as senior associates, work closely with our new lawyers to ensure development and understanding of what we do. Our clients demand efficient, effective representation at all levels and associates are expected to assist and in some instances take the lead in handling matters.
Associate compensation packages are competitive with other firms in the region.
Flaherty features a summer clerk program for first and second-year law students. Students are given the opportunity to work with various practice groups in the firm. More importantly, student clerks are actively involved and attend depositions, hearings, and trials in addition to research and writing. We believe this practice provides clerks with a realistic view of practicing law.
Outside of work, we set aside plenty of time for our summer clerks to get to know our attorneys as well as the cities we call home. From golf tournaments to local sporting events to dinners and cultural events, our clerks are treated to the best West Virginia has to offer.
Summer law clerk salaries are competitive with other firms in the region. The summer program is tailored to suit the schedule of the individual clerks, but typically a 12-week clerkship is envisioned, starting within 1-2 weeks of the end of the spring semester of law school.
