Junior Associate

Birdsall Obear & Associates is looking to hire two (2) junior associates with 1-3 years of experience in criminal defense. Specifically, we are looking for one attorney to work in our Milwaukee office and the other to work in our Sheboygan Office. Although we only have offices in Milwaukee and Sheboygan, attorneys take cases statewide. Therefore, candidates should expect to travel for court appearances and should have the means to do so. 
The firm is committed to and passionate about providing zealous representation for all of our clients. An ideal candidate would share this commitment and have the desire to grow not only in the field of criminal defense, but also with the firm.
The nature of practicing criminal defense, especially at this time, requires attorneys to work overtime and occasionally on the weekends. Candidates should be able and willing to put in the extra time when needed. 
Junior associates are also expected to complete work for the partners-Atty. John Birdsall and Atty. Kirk Obear. This includes appearing at initial appearances, preliminary hearings, and statuses/scheduling conferences. This also includes completing research and preparing pleadings for the partners. Although junior associates would work on cases assigned to other attorneys, we also encourage and expect our junior associates to land and handle cases of their own.
If you are interested in either position (Milwaukee or Sheboygan) please email a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample to Atty. Nicole Muller at by September 25, 2022.
