At Kalman Samuels, Attorneys, we strive to create a healthy, collaborative work environment. We seek out, hire and train team members who are motivated to assist one another in obtaining the best possible results for our clients.
One of our most distinguishing features is that this is a law firm where people actually look forward to coming to work.
We seek new candidates in the following categories of Attorneys, Staff, and Students.
“Internal” Attorneys are lawyers who are full-time members of our team and are wholly dedicated to the Law Firm of Kalman Samuels, Attorneys, and to our clients. We seek candidates who have a demonstrated track record of commitment and excellence. Because we practice extensively in the areas of international family law, working knowledge of a third or fourth language in addition to French and English is an asset, but not a requirement.
“Collaborating” Attorneys are independent attorneys upon whom the Law Firm of Kalman Samuels, Attorneys depend to assist with special cases or clients. We call upon our bank of agent attorneys because of particular skills, or simply due to high client demand. We hold our agent attorneys to the same high standards as our core attorneys and assist and supervise them throughout the legal process. Our law firm has obtained many significant victories in collaboration with agent attorneys.
The legal technicians at Kalman Samuels, Attorneys are highly trained and proficient. We accept interns from the leading local colleges and train our employees internally. Because we handle a large number of international law cases, multilingualism, beyond French and English, is a strong asset.
Secretaries & Receptionists
Our secretaries and receptionists work collaboratively with one another, with the legal technicians, with the students, and with the attorneys of our firm. Qualified candidates are provided with extensive onsite training.
