Hiring inquiries

Cline Williams strives to hire associates and summer associates whose character, interpersonal skills and past accomplishments demonstrate the potential to become outstanding lawyers.  If you are a high academic achiever with initiative, integrity and maturity and work effectively with others, we invite you to review the following programs and apply.

Summer associate program

Our primary tool for recruiting new lawyers, the summer associate program at Cline Williams, offers the ability to work on a diverse array of legal issues while you become acquainted with the lawyers in the firm and how we work. Summer associates have opportunities to accompany Cline Williams lawyers to legal activities outside the office and to attend meetings of all the practice groups through the course of the summer. Mid-summer and end-of-summer evaluations provide feedback regarding the associate's work product and overall performance.

Associate program 

At Cline Williams, new associates are hired with the ultimate goal of admitting them to the partnership. Associates are assigned to a particular practice section based on their own expressed interests and the needs of our clients, but will also be exposed to work from many practice areas. Associates are assigned a supervising partner, and are often assigned primary responsibility for handling certain legal matters. In addition, associates work in a support role for more senior lawyers on other matters.  We encourage direct contact between associates and clients. Throughout the early years of an associate's career, the greatest emphasis is placed on the development of the skills required to practice law at the highest level.

We invite you to apply
