Associate Attorney (2+ years of personal injury experience)
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, workers' compensation, 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
1,300 outstanding client reviews on our website, an A+ BBB rating, and over 425 five-star reviews on Google.
Agruss Law Firm is looking to hire an associate attorney with 2+ years of personal injury experience as a lawyer. You will work in a fast-paced, but high-reward, environment.

From signing up new cases to settling cases, the associate will handle all aspects of litigation.

FLEXIBILITY, AUTONOMY, AND SUPPORT
You will work from home. You will have a home office and an office in Ravenswood. Although we go into the office once a week, it's just for lunch and an opportunity to hang out with each other. You will manage your own caseload. You will work on cases from start to finish. The case distribution is equal across the board. We have three full-time intake specialists, two paralegals, a case manager, and several law clerks. The support staff team is here to help make your work easier and more efficient.
THINGS TO CONSIDER: I (Mike 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. 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. 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 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.
