JPG Legal Is Hiring Its First Associate Attorney
It’s finally time. Gross revenue has been at or above $60,000 a month for four straight months now, and I’m barely maintaining my sanity under the weight of my current workload, so I’ve put out a job listing for JPG Legal’s first associate attorney, a full-time position.
Hopefully, after some training, this person will lighten my workload enough that I can spend more time growing the firm, programming trademark-related software applications, and running my retail store in Manhattan. Maybe I can even start drawing comics again.
This will be a good job. I’m a socialist with a legal background in the labor movement, so I feel obligated to create a job that doesn’t keep the associate working or “on call” outside of their preferred working hours, has excellent remote working options, and doesn’t have a billable hour quota (one of the worst things about working at a conventional law firm). It’ll pay between $60,000 and $70,000 a year depending on experience, plus a substantial bonus, with health insurance and ample paid time off.
It makes me sad to hear my friends at other law firms tell me about how they’re regularly expected to be in the office until late at night and on weekends, and always have to be able to respond to emails immediately even when not working. Those are abusive conditions.
It’s also an ideal position for somebody who has just graduated from law school, because the associate will learn trademark law very quickly, and their salary will grow as the firm grows. They’ll be eligible for an ownership stake sooner than at a conventional law firm, as well. Plus they’ll have a 27″ 2017 iMac, an adjustable sit-stand desk, and a $1,000 lower-back-supporting office chair!
So if you know anybody looking for a legal job, please point them to the listing. The plan is to interview the top candidates around the end of August.
