We offer a salary competitive with similar firms in the Syracuse area.

Exceptionally strong research and writing skills are critical; background in a writing-intensive field is helpful but not required.

Application: Please send a resume, cover letter, references, and writing sample to and use the subject line “2023 Attorney Position.”
