Part Time Associate Sought in Crystal Lake

The Rozovics Law Firm, LLC is seeking a part time associate for its Crystal Lake office. Michelle Rozovics posted the following email to the ISBA email list this morning:

I am looking to hire a part time associate attorney to work in my Crystal Lake, Illinois office 2 days per week, Mondays and Wednesdays, 8am – 5pm. Must be admitted to practice in Illinois. Admission to the Northern District of Illinois is appreciated, but not required. My firm is a boutique law firm that primarily focuses on business transactions and litigation, with a significant portion of clients doing business nationally and/or internationally.

The associate will initially handle the firm’s non-business legal matters (foreclosure defense, small personal injury cases, general civil litigation), collections for small business clients and minor contracts or corporate matters. As you progress (in my mind and yours), I may give you more responsibility. I may also ask you to conduct business development activities on behalf of the firm.

The highest sense of ethics, a sense of humor, an ability to follow directions and a simultaneous ability to think independently are key considerations in my hiring decision. Relations with clients are paramount, so you need a good personality: professional, yet personable and down to earth. I am a phenomenal mentor (my mentors taught me well enough to know to give back), but I can’t stand adults who act like whiny babies.

Salary commensurate with experience. Profit sharing will be available for business associate brings into the firm. No employee benefits are available at this time. I welcome applications from pretty much anyone, but this part time arrangement may work very well for persons who are operating their own firm or business and/or part-time parents reentering the workforce and/or newly admitted attorneys who have not yet developed bad work habits. However, the work days and times are non-negotiable. I expect to have your full attention when you are here.

Do not contact me if your desire is to work in my downtown office or from home. It will show me that you cannot read or follow instructions. Read my website’s philosophy page before you apply. If you find any of it strange or inapplicable to the way you work, do not apply.
