We are proud to offer our attorneys a productive working environment which promotes teamwork throughout the firm. Attorneys can expect a challenging and fulfilling legal practice, serving with a group of peers who are as committed as they are to getting the work done. Here's what sets AALRR apart when it comes to what we offer our attorneys:
Training & Development
We highly prioritize attorney development and satisfaction. To that end, the firm offers a formal mentoring program in which associates select their mentors, active committees focused on diversity and women attorneys, numerous cross-marketing programs, training programs such as our recent Trial Academy, Trial Academy II, and Negotiation Boot Camp, and a variety of networking and social events.
Associates at our firm generally are vested with significant responsibility early in their careers and often advance more quickly than associates at other law firms. New attorneys may negotiate with government agencies and opposing counsel, obtain courtroom experience, and become involved in firm marketing opportunities. These responsibilities allow them to acquire and refine their legal skills early on.
We provide a comprehensive benefits package that includes a progressive parental leave policy, generous associate compensation packages, and flexible working hours to all our attorneys. Our profit-sharing plan has been, for decades, one of the most generous in California—and it remains so today.
Diversity & Inclusivity
We believe that a multiplicity of worldviews makes us thrive as a firm. That's why we are widely and regularly recognized as one of the most diverse and inclusive law firms in the country. In the last year alone, AALRR was named the best firm in the nation for both minority equity partners and minority attorneys in general by Law360, was honored with the Drucilla Stender Ramey Majority-Owned Law Firm Award by the California Minority Counsel Program, was shortlisted as one of the five Most Inclusive Firms for Minority Women Lawyers nationwide by Chambers & Partners, and was awarded the Associated Builders and Contractors' (ABC) National Diversity Excellence Award for the third time in the Associate category.
