Sands Anderson PC is proud to offer a firm culture that encourages work-life balance. If you're a client, you'll find lawyers and support staff knowledgeable and responsive all hours of the business day, and, in critical times, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you need a single question answered or a complex legal issue addressed, you'll be able to reach us by phone, fax and email. Still, we recognize that lawyers and support staff have family and personal lives that enrich their experience and help them be engaged and empathetic when offering you legal counsel. Having a good work-life balance, therefore, is also good for our clients.
If you practice law, you’ll appreciate that we are organized in teams of like practice, but not constrained by that management technique. You’ll find it easy to join interdisciplinary teams to benefit from our niche marketing initiatives, as well as to develop a focused specialty that taps into your skills and interests. We do ask attorneys to maintain a minimum of 1,800 billable hours per year and paralegals a minimum of 1,500 billable hours. We make it possible for you to hone your legal skills through professional development with a variety of in-house CLE seminars and services. Additionally, you are provided with a CLE allowance and marketing efforts with a small personal client relationship development fund.
You’ll work on some of the latest technology with the support of an Information Technology department of engineers, facilitators and help desk analysts. You will have access to a desktop or laptop computer and blackberry™ services along with a suite of useful software to manage your workflow, time records, trial exhibits and case presentations.
You’ll benefit from strong supervision and guidance from attorneys who have demonstrated their management skills and to whom the firm offers specific management training. All lawyers and staff have annual performance evaluations. Some junior associates also have mid-year check-ins.
We value personal and professional development opportunities. If you are in one of our support roles, you can count on us to help you, too. We’ll help fund additional training that will improve your job performance. We are open minded to internal job transfers and flexible work schedules as business needs allow. Opportunity abounds in our firm.
We encourage you to review our list of current employment opportunities. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like further information:
