Cool Litigation job like no other. Action!

June 14, 2018 in featured-openings by Randy Block  |  No Comments

My client seeks a 2015 or 2016 grad for a cool Litigation position handling Environmental / Work Place Safety in Houston.  This is an ACTION position and not so much sitting at the desk all day.  You will focus on major incident response, government inspections and enforcement litigation, internal investigations, and compliance counseling.  We prefer experience with environmental, toxic tort or similar experience.

We need more people who want to make great money Wining & Dining for a living!
This company just hired two more entrepreneurial attorneys from me (along with the previous successful candidates from me) and is eager to hire for a couple more positions. The owner of the company did this same job in his 20s and made millions each year.  He is worth far, far more than that now.  Exclusive to me.  I am seeking attorneys who are interested in using your law degree / legal experience in the business world – primarily in a sales position involving Energy, Construction and Insurance.
You’ll have a big expense account for entertaining clients. This is a FUN job. Rarely will you sit at a desk.  Never a boring moment, and plenty of money to be made. No billing hours.
I need Personable, Intelligent, Hard-Working people.  Grades are not important.  You can be a new grad; years of legal experience is not important.  This is all about the ability to engage people and maintain relationships.  You will be very well-trained, and paid during the training period.
Based on decades of experience, the owner expects that a good (not great) performer will make the following:

$75K in 1st year

$75K in 2nd year
$151K in 3rd year
$252K in 4th year
$483K in 5th year
$700K+ in 6th year
ETC.

This is legit.  If I have piqued your interest, let’s talk!

Exclusive to me: The premiere Commercial Finance group.
