Associate Attorney (Las Cruces)

New Mexico Legal Group is hiring an additional attorney to join our team in Las Cruces and we have expanded our hiring criteria. While we are a divorce and family law firm, we have had significant success with candidates outside this field. This is especially true for former prosecutors and P.D.s, as well as civil defense lawyers and anyone who is interested in making a difference in people’s lives, having significant client contact, getting into court on a regular basis, and earning what you deserve based on your performance. We are a cutting-edge divorce and family law practice made up of high-level performers. You would be joining attorneys Amy Bailey, Chrystian Gonzalez, Molly Kicklighter, and Julie Kester, as well as the excellent support team in Las Cruces, and you would enjoy the support and camaraderie of the Albuquerque team as well: David Crum, Cynthia Payne, Darin McDougall, Michelle Timm, Matthew Barceleau, Mark Pustay, Susan Barela, and Maggie Brister.

We are looking for one more smart, entrepreneurial, down to earth, drama free lawyer to join us in our mission.

Why is this an incredible opportunity?

  • You will be involved in creating the very culture and financial rewards that you have always wanted in a law firm;
  • We practice at the highest levels in our field, with independence and cutting edge practice and marketing strategies;
  • The firm offers excellent pay ($130-150k first year), PPO health insurance, life, disability, dental and vision insurance, an automatic 3% contribution to 401(k) and future revenue sharing;
  • This is also a great opportunity for lawyers in a solo practice who would like to merge their practice.

This position is best filled by an attorney who wants to help build something extraordinary. This will be a drama free environment filled with other team members who want to experience something other than your run of the mill divorce firm.

Interested candidates: upload whatever form of contact you think is appropriate, explaining why you are drawn to this position and how you can be an asset to the team.

All inquiries are completely confidential. We look forward to hearing from you!

Job Type: Full-time

Pay: $130,000.00 – $150,000.00 per year
