Associate and Staff Attorney Opportunities
CCJ fosters an environment for associate attorneys which includes one-on-one mentoring, training, and an open-door policy between and among every attorney in the firm. CCJ believes that the best way to grow professionally is to share ideas in a collegial atmosphere in which each attorney is permitted to develop his or her specialized skills over a period of time.
Practice areas include but are not limited to general business and corporate, banking, estate planning, tax, real estate, probate, labor and employment, workers' compensation, employee benefits plans, municipal law, personal injury, and virtually all areas of litigation.
CCJ offers a competitive salary, the potential for annual increases and annual bonus, a 401(k) program, health insurance, life insurance, long-term disability insurance, payment of bar association dues and CLE expenses, and other fringe benefits.
CCJ provides services from offices in five north central Ohio locations: Wooster, Medina, Millersburg, Mount Vernon and Ashland. Opportunities for employment vary from time to time. We encourage you to submit your resume for consideration.
Summer Clerk Opportunities
CCJ typically hires between two and four law students to serve as summer clerks in any of our five locations. Many of CCJ's current members and associate attorneys first got to know the firm through participating in the summer clerk program.
Summer clerks are given a wide variety of assignments, with the goal of working with as many attorneys as possible throughout the summer. While most projects are research-orientated, clerks are also given the opportunity to interact with clients, attend depositions and trials, and participate in other matters of interest.
Summer clerks also are invited to a number of social events throughout the summer with the goal of having the attorneys in the firm get to know the clerks on a personal level.
Although employment needs vary from time to time, CCJ is always interested in hearing from highly qualified persons looking for paralegal opportunities. As a general rule, paralegals should have a paralegal certificate, associate degree or bachelor's degree in a related field. Excellent written, verbal and research skills are essential.
A competitive salary and benefits package, as well as reimbursement for approved continued training and education, are offered.
Administrative Assistant Opportunities
CCJ welcomes the opportunity to hear from qualified administrative assistants seeking employment. Excellent proofreading, computer and interpersonal skills are required. Legal experience is preferred but not required.
CCJ offers a competitive salary and benefits package. If no opening is currently available, your resume will be kept on file as openings become available.
