Steptoe & Johnson PLLC is seeking a staff associate with practice ranging from entry level to 3 years of general litigation experience for its Charleston, WV office.  Qualified candidates should have litigation experience commensurate with time in practice, strong writing and analytical skills, excellent academic credentials, and a desire to appear in court.  Experience with litigation in federal courts and experience with complex, high-profile, high-dollar litigation is particularly helpful.  We offer a competitive starting salary and a comprehensive benefits package. This staff associate role is designed to be part of a client service team and ideal for a lawyer who does not seek to be in a partner-track position, but wants to continue providing top-quality legal representation for the firm’s clients.

Steptoe & Johnson is among the NLJ’s Top 150 law firms, with 14 offices in 6 states. In addition to litigation, Steptoe & Johnson’s core strengths include energy, transactional, and labor and employment law, with over 275 attorneys working in 40 practice areas. With roots dating back more than a century, the firm has a long history of success borne of focused client service and congenial working relationships with the firm. Steptoe & Johnson provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
