Careers at Manning Curtis Bradshaw & Bednar PLLC: At MCBB, the quality of work and client base are decidedly big firm. Everything else is different. We have few rules, no bureaucracy and very high expectations of ourselves and others. We recruit lawyers who are interested in litigation, self-directed, ambitious and dedicated to making a difference in the community and in the profession. We offer the ability to do top quality work in an environment that fosters and rewards individual initiative and creativity. New lawyers are given early and significant responsibility, but also work hand-in-hand with and receive training from more senior attorneys.
Although stellar academic achievement and a strong work ethic are prerequisites, we look for much more. We expect all of our lawyers to dedicate themselves to cultivating a complete legal skill set. We do not recruit "office lawyers" we look for people who have top-notch analytical and writing skills, but also strong social, emotional and leadership attributes; people with the ability to be just as persuasive in conversation as they are in writing. And while we look for candidates with extraordinary professional skills, we also want to associate with people who have interests and abilities outside of the profession. We are all citizens of the community, and we have chosen to live and work in a community that offers unparalleled recreational and civic opportunities. We enjoy our lives, both professionally and privately, and we believe that a lawyer's ability to do top-notch legal work is increased if he or she does not work all of the time. If you share our philosophy and are looking for an opportunity to maximize your potential as a litigator while maintaining an enjoyable lifestyle, we want to talk to you.
