Location: Montpelier, Vermont
How does one balance professional, community, social, and recreational activities? Living in the smallest capitol (pop. 8200) in the U.S., one can achieve a very satisfying lifestyle. Montpelier offers a variety of cultural and social venues. Abundant outdoor activities are available in the city and nearby. Opportunities are also available to serve on the boards of community non-profits and professional organizations.
I am a solo practitioner, who is beginning to develop a retirement transition plan. I am looking for an associate attorney to join my well-established and busy practice in representing clients throughout the state at all levels of the administrative process from initial application through U.S. District Court review. I am seeking an associate attorney with 1 to 5 years experience, who will file initial applications and/or appeals, develop the record, prepare clients for hearing, write pre-hearing memos, represent clients at hearings, write letter-brief appeals to the Appeals Council, and research and write U.S. District Court briefs. This job requires considerable contact with clients, agency staff, and medical providers.
The successful candidate must have 1 to 5 years of legal experience, have excellent verbal and written communications skills, be well-organized, and be admitted to any state bar. The candidate must be willing to travel by car to hearings in Burlington, Brattleboro, and St. Johnsbury, and to be an integral part of my 5 to 10 year transition plan.
Benefits include fully paid health insurance, retirement plan with matching component, 15 days PTO annually to start, and NOSSCR membership and conference attendance.
