Experienced Associate Attorney - Family Law
Company: New Leaf Family
Posted on: September 17, 2020
What if there were a better way to practice Family Law? Better
yet, what if there were a better way to handle the ending of a
marriage, the decisions about child custody, and other relationship
conflict issues altogether?--What if there were a way for a client
to be able to assess his/her own motivations, and what s/he truly
wants in the next chapter of his/her life?
Those are the questions our firm seeks to answer. And we want you
to be a part of it if you're a good fit.
Many attorneys who have practiced family law for a while are
exhausted. The level of intensity, the drama, the needless
escalation of conflict, the heartbreak - it's enough to wear anyone
down. But what if you had not just more support, but better ways of
doing things, so that the balance was such that most days you feel
awesome about how much you are making a real impact on people's
lives, punctuated by a couple of bad days here and there - as
opposed the opposite.
To be a good fit for this role, you should be someone who is
looking for an opportunity to--focus on helping people navigate the
biggest decisions they will face in their lives: changes in their
family. Whether divorce, separation, custody, parenting time,
visitation, or other family changes, disputes, or crises, you want
to help them reach the best outcome that is consistent with their
We need you to be proficient in Colorado Family Law practice and
procedure, but not wedded to "the way things have always been
done." We need you to be an optimist, and a realist, at the same
time.----We need you to be creative and able to think outside the
box, while also adhering to the established parameters of law and
court procedure.--You are beyond having anyone pull the wool over
your eyes, and well beyond ever taking it personally if they
Of course, you have the skills necessary to advocate for our
clients before a mediator or a court. You also know
that--litigation--is not always the path to the best outcome. You
are not--motivated by the thrill of--the other side losing
but--are--dedicated to achieving an optimal outcome for our
clients--consistent with--their--values - which you may help them
You--understand that--this--process--is about more--than writing
legal documents.--You are eager to be the captain of a team
that--can go beyond the "bare minimum" and provides--all the
help--the clients--may need. You are excited about being part of a
firm that will be there for them, even outside the strictly legal
aspects of these major life changes --whether it be help finding a
new home, a car, the right insurance,--a babysitter, or an IT
You are committed, above all, and in everything we do, to an
excellent experience for our clients.
If you're still reading this, and believe this might be a role for
you, let me tell you about us. AndersonDodson is opening a family
law practice serving Jefferson County (for now), Colorado. We are
combining our talents of running a successful law firm out east,
with the experience of having built a very successful family law
practice before, and wanting to do it again ... better than ever.

But ... we are starting small. What we're looking for is someone
who is OK coming on as a Contract Attorney for 3-6 months, and then
full-time after that. We are not looking to replace the contract
attorney with a full-timer, but rather help you grow into the role,
as we grow the number of clients we serve. We have committed
substantial resources to attract the right clients to the firm, in
the right quantities to build this up quickly ... but not so
quickly as to compromise the excellent client experience.
When you apply, please briefly let me know why this role, in
particular, gets you excited...
We look forward to hearing from you!

New Leaf Family is a law firm, yes. But we do things ...
differently. We understand that our clients don't come to us with
legal problems. They come to us with personal problems, for which
the solutions may have an intersection with the law.
