Agruss Law Firm, LLC
4809 N Ravenswood Ave, Suite 419, Chicago, IL 60640
OFFICE DESCRIPTION: Agruss Law Firm was founded in March 2012. Since then, Agruss Law Firm has quickly grown to include several lawyers, paralegals, and legal assistants. We handle personal injury and consumer rights cases. We are also a high-volume firm. We work hard, encourage personal growth and development, and have fun around the office. Workdays fly by-there is never a dull moment, there is always more work to be done, and we are never bored. Although we expect to accomplish a lot every day, we also know when to call it quits for the day and enjoy our lives outside of the office. Our unique formula has earned us over 1,400 outstanding reviews on our website, an A+ BBB rating , and over 475 five-star reviews on Google.
JOB DESCRIPTION: Agruss Law Firm is looking to hire an associate attorney with 1-4 years of of personal injury and/or workers' compensation experience. You will work in a fast-paced, but high-reward, environment. You will eventually be in charge of your own caseload (100+ cases). Therefore, the ideal candidate must be an excellent writer, extremely organized, and comfortable talking on the phone with clients, opposing counsel, insurance adjusters, arbitrators, and judges.
We are also a tech-savvy law firm that is always looking to improve our performance and efficiency. In fact, we just launched Litify law firm software. Built on Salesforce, Litify combines state-of-the-art matter management, document management, analytics, automation, and more into the most powerful, streamlined practice management platform.
SKILLS: The ideal candidate must be proficient in Microsoft applications, have excellent time-management skills, be able to efficiently multi-task, work well under pressure, and be personable. From signing up new cases to settling cases, the associate will handle all aspects of litigation. Job duties will include interviewing potential clients; drafting pleadings; propounding and answering discovery; drafting and arguing motions; attending court and arbitration hearings; taking and defending depositions; and settling cases.
EXPERIENCE: 1-4 years of experience (plaintiffs' personal injury experience a plus).
COMPENSATION: : Base salary, objective monthly performance-based bonuses, plus 50% of any net fees for business you bring to the firm. Your total compensation is uncapped!
BENEFITS: We also offer generous PTO; a 401k plan; health, dental, and vision insurance; short-term disability, long-term disability, and life insurance.
THINGS TO CONSIDER: I (Michael Agruss) love practicing law and running a business. I wanted to be a lawyer since I could walk. I also wanted to own my own law firm before going to law school. I worked at other law firms for about 8 years before starting Agruss Law Firm. I know firsthand just how unpleasant small plaintiff's firms can be. Agruss Law Firm is not your typical law firm and that is on purpose. From a casual dress code to a collaborative office with an open-door policy, we are a tight-knit group that cares about each other and our clients. But, I have huge expectations of everyone at my office. I'm always working on generating business, managing my law firm, and making sure we are the most efficient, tech-savvy firm out there. I respect everyone at my office, pay them well, reward them, and encourage everyone to learn and to become better at their jobs. If you come here and kill it as a lawyer, you can even become an equity partner, which happened in 2021 for the first time.
